The companies will use GreenPower’s EV Star Cargo and EV Star Cab and Chassis to meet the demand of fleet customers across Asia, the Middle East, and Europe, according to the company's news release.
“We have already delivered a right-hand drive EV Star Cab and Chassis to GML and will be delivering additional EV Star Cab and Chassis and EV Star Cargos ordered by GML,” said Fraser Atkinson, GreenPower CEO. “As the world continues to transition to electric commercial vehicles, our enhanced partnership with GML enables GreenPower to be working from a position of strength with ready-now solutions to deliver to our customers in key global markets.”
GML is a manufacturer of bodywork for commercial vehicles with exports to more than 15 markets around the globe including Australia, United Arab Emirates, Singapore, and Hong Kong.
“Market opportunities for the EV Star Cab and Chassis include using it as the platform for shuttle buses, school buses, motorhomes, and box trucks as well as the EV Star Cargo upfitted for delivery, services, utility, and last mile in potential markets including Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia, and some others," said Pang Chong Yong, chairman and CEO of GML.
Earlier this year, GreenPower delivered the first tranche of EV Star Cab and Chassis (EV Star CC) to Workhorse Group Inc. for the Production of Workhorse’s New Class 4 W750 Step Van Line.
Transportation Commodities (TCI) has taken delivery of four GreenPower EV Star Cab and Chassis in January.
This announcement also comes after GreenPower secured another 85 vouchers under the California HVIP program for 75 EV Star 22’ Cargo vans, eight EV Star Box Trucks, and two EV Star 25’ Cargo vans.
At Work Truck Week 2022, Lisa McGhee, business development manager for GreenPower provided insight into the company's Class 4 electric cargo van.
