GreenPower Announces Delivery of 10 EV Star Cab and Chassis to Global Retailer in Canada

SOUTH CHARLESTON, W. Va. ,- GreenPower Motor Company Inc.

“GreenPower delivered 10 EV Star Cab and Chassis to the Canadian unit of a global retailer who will upfit the vehicles for fulfillment of orders to the end consumer in the greater Toronto market,” said Claus Tritt, GreenPower’s Vice President of Medium-Duty and Commercial Vehicle Sales, who added that they were financed by a Canadian leasing company. “The company will upfit the vehicles with its own cargo box in order to facilitate last and middle-mile home deliveries.”

The all-electric GreenPower proprietary EV Star Cab and Chassis was designed to take on any mid and last-mile delivery while maintaining the benefits of being a zero-emissions vehicle. It is purpose-built to be an electric vehicle and is designed to accommodate a multitude of upfits or bodies for different use cases. With a carrying capacity of 7,000 pounds and a range of up to 150 miles, the GreenPower EV Star Cab and Chassis is the perfect vehicle for any fleet. 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-emission goods and people transportation.

The EV Star Cab and Chassis went through final assembly and inspection at GreenPower’s South Charleston, West Virginia facility. The plant where GreenPower’s Type A Nano BEAST and Type D BEAST all-electric school buses are manufactured also serves as a hub for processing the EV Star Cab and Chassis for East Coast distribution in the United States and Canada.
