(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, will participate in the San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) Electric Vehicle (EV) Fleet Day on April 19, at SDG&E Century Park Campus in San Diego, California.

GreenPower’s Type D BEAST school bus, the EV Star Cargo Plus and the EV Star Stakebed are among the
Company’s all-electric, purpose-built, zero-emission vehicles that will be showcased at the SDG&E EV Fleet Day.

Through the Company’s California dealers, GreenPower vehicles are eligible for the California Hybrid and Zero-emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP) and its Innovative Small E-Fleet pilot (ISEF). “For many small fleet operators, the upfront costs of purchasing an all-electric truck can be high,” said Claus Tritt, Vice President of Medium-Duty and Commercial Vehicle Sales. “Through HVIP and other available vouchers, GreenPower’s vehicles are available for a fraction of the original cost, meaning that a fleet owner would be able to walk away with an EV Star Cargo Plus through a GreenPower dealer for less than $25,000, pre-tax. Events such as EV Fleet Day provide an opportunity for fleet operators to engage with the manufacturers and funding agencies so they can understand the opportunities available to them.”

GreenPower provides more durable, cleaner and safer transportation alternatives to businesses looking to deploy all-electric commercial vehicles including trucks and cargo vans. With the recent launch of GP Truck Body, GreenPower now covers every stage of the fleet experience, making the ordering process more seamless and drastically reducing the time from order to delivery to meet the customer’s business needs. GreenPower’s innovative technologies can help businesses drive down operating costs, minimize maintenance costs while delivering outstanding reliability and efficiency.

EV Fleet Day Ride-Along

In addition to vehicle displays and networking, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in the EV ride-along experience to feel the power and performance of an electric fleet vehicle firsthand. GreenPower’s EV Star Stakebed Truck, the EV Star Passenger Van with the rear ADA option, and the Type A Nano BEAST school bus will be available for the ride-along portion of the event that is open to the public from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
