GreenPower Motor Company’s new EV Star CC Model is a purpose-built, battery-electric, multi-utility cab and chassis that can be used by cargo and delivery companies that wish to use their body design while transitioning to a zero-emissions fleet.
GreenPower designs, manufactures, and distributes electric-powered medium- and heavy-duty vehicles serving the cargo and delivery, transit, shuttle, tourist, and school sectors.
The 25-foot chassis has a payload of up to 6,000 pounds and can be configured with a range of options, including a liftgate, wireless charging, and autonomous capabilities. This approach allows operators to buy a “future-proof” blank canvas with maximum flexibility and configuration options, according to the company.
“This is an incredibly exciting product launch for GreenPower and the potential is unparalleled. While this initiative has been in place for more than a year, we certainly find ourselves in the right spot at the right time as we roll out our new EV Star CC,” said Brendan Riley, president of GreenPower. “Given the change in consumer needs where goods delivery is now ubiquitous, demand is exceptionally strong for cargo and delivery vehicles that are environmentally friendly. The EV Star CC represents an especially large market opportunity over the immediate and near term given our ability to build, produce and deliver these units in large quantities.”
The all-electric zero emission EV Star Platform can be used for multiple applications: It is used for a 25-foot bus that seats up to 19 passengers, a Plus version that seats up to 24 passengers, a cargo/delivery van, and the CC bare chassis.
All EV Stars have an industry best 118kWh battery pack with an operational range of up to 150 miles coming with a standard J1772 level 2 and CCS DC level 3 fast combo charge system, allowing for optimal flexibility in route planning for any duty cycle.
