ANGELES, March 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- GreenPower
Motor Company, Inc. (NASDAQ: GP) (TSXV: GPV) ("GreenPower"), a
leading manufacturer and distributor of zero-emission,
electric-powered, medium and heavy-duty vehicles, today announced
the official launch of the Nano BEAST: a purpose-built,
battery-electric, Type A school bus with a class-leading range of
up to 150 miles per charge.
The Nano BEAST (Battery Electric Automotive School
Transportation) is the only purpose-built, zero-emission, Type A
school bus on the market. Its clean sheet design approach
facilitates optimal battery pack placement and weight distribution,
allowing the vehicle to accommodate a larger energy supply, deliver
a longer range and set the new standard for zero emissions student
transportation. The Nano BEAST will have the largest standard
battery pack for a Type A school bus in the market.
GreenPower developed the Nano BEAST using its purpose-built
flagship EV Star Platform, which has accumulated approximately 200
deliveries throughout North
America with deliveries growing every month. This platform
has proven its efficiency and reliability in a wide variety of
operational settings including paratransit, airport shuttling,
micro transit, cargo delivery and vanpool service.
GreenPower will begin initial deliveries to its customers in the
coming months and anticipates that the pace of these deliveries
will increase by the end of the year.
There are approximately 9,700 new Type A school buses sold every
year and approximately 500,000 yellow school buses running
across the country. With state vouchers, federal
funding and mandates to go all-electric the Nano BEAST rounds out
GreenPower's school bus product offerings.
"The Nano BEAST offers unprecedented levels of safety and
reliability for a zero-emission, Type A school bus. We've seen the
EV Star Platform exceed expectations in other industries, and we
look forward to carrying this over into the school bus industry
with our proven, unparalleled technology, said Riley. "The
school bus industry is the largest form of transportation in the
U.S. with more than 25 million students transported daily.
Providing school districts and our communities with a safer
alternative to diesel-emitting school buses provides tremendous
health benefits for our children, especially since NOx exhaust is a
trigger of health problems like asthma and other respiratory
issues. The move to all-electric options is critical and GreenPower
remains committed to providing a better, cleaner and safer
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the
primary source of NOx is motor vehicles, including school
buses. NOx exhaust can trigger health problems like
asthma, bronchitis, and other respiratory issues.
Ryne Shetterly, Vice President of
Sales and Marketing at GreenPower, added, "We are avid supporters
of the Federal administration's school bus electrification goals.
The launch of a purpose-built, battery-electric, Type A school bus
was a critical next step for GreenPower and the industry."
Shetterly continued, "The development of the Nano BEAST is a
monumental achievement, both for GreenPower and for the school
transportation industry at large."
