RENO, Nev., July 10, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- GreenPower Motor Company Inc. (NASDAQ: GP) (TSXV: GPV) ("GreenPower"), a leading manufacturer and distributor of purpose-built, all-electric, zero-emission medium and heavy-duty vehicles serving the cargo and delivery market, shuttle and transit space and school bus sector, today announced its participation at the School Transportation News (STN) Expo Reno Conference and Trade Show on July 14 to 19 in Reno, Nevada at the Peppermill Resort.
GreenPower will display its BEAST and Nano BEAST during the Trade Show on Monday, July 17 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. PDT and Tuesday, July 18 from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. PDT in booth #535.
The BEAST is GreenPower's purpose-built, 40-foot Type D school bus that can seat up to 90 passengers. The vehicle features a modern monocoque chassis, and we believe is the safest, most durable and reliable all-electric school bus available on the market today. The Nano BEAST is a purpose-built, zero-emission, Type A school bus with seating for up to 24 students, or the option for wheelchair securements and a rear curbside lift. GreenPower's all-electric school buses have a class-leading range of up to 150 miles.
"All-electric school buses represent the future of safe, sustainable and efficient school transportation," said Michael Perez, Vice President of School Bus, Contracts and Grants. "We are excited to be back at STN to demonstrate our buses' impressive features and capabilities to industry professionals and attendees. Our all-electric, purpose-built school buses are changing the way we transport kids, providing a healthier future for students and communities."
Green Bus Summit
Transportation professionals from across the country will come together for the annual STN Expo to connect and learn about the latest training techniques, products and services. Most importantly, the Green Bus Summit held during STN Reno will provide a full day of discussion sessions regarding electric school bus adaptation and a ride and drive event in the evening.
During the Green Bus Summit, GreenPower, alongside West Virginia representatives, will share the findings from the pilot program which allowed 18 school districts in West Virginia the opportunity to experience GreenPower all-electric school buses in real-world scenarios. The session titled The Secrets to Deploying All-Electric School Buses in Differing Conditions will be on Sunday, July 16 from 11:00 to 11:50 a.m. PDT.
GreenPower's Type D all-electric school bus will be featured at the Green Bus Summit ride and drive on Sunday, July 16 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. PDT. Attendees will have the opportunity to ride in the purpose-built EV school bus and experience the ride and maneuverability it delivers.
