LOS ANGELES, Calif, February 16, 2023 – 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 the appointment of New England Truck Solutions (NETS) as a dealer for GreenPower’s medium and heavy-duty commercial vehicles in the Boston and Rhode Island markets.
NETS sells and maintains class 4 through 8 vehicles to meet the demands of its diverse customer base and operates as a full-service dealer capable of handling all phases of truck and body repairs.
