GreenPower Delivers Eight EV Stars to Creative Bus Sales

Company Provides Update on EV Star Production

Porterville, California – July 30, 2019 – GreenPower Motor Company Inc. (TSXV: GPV) (OTCQX: GPVRF) (“GreenPower”) today announced that it has delivered eight EV Star All-Electric Min-eBuses (“EV Stars”) to Creative Bus Sales (“Creative”) for a total of ten EV Stars for the month of July. As previously announced, GreenPower received an order in 2018 for 100 buses from Creative, the nation’s largest bus dealer for sales, parts and service. With 19 physical locations, a 75-person sales team, and 200- plus service and support staff, Creative sold thousands of buses in the U.S. last year and represents over 20 of the top bus manufacturers.

“We’re pleased to announce that an additional eight buses have been delivered to Creative, as we continue to execute on our long-term contract with this important partner,” said Brendan Riley, President of GreenPower Motor Company. “Given the Company’s current order book of over 200 buses – most to be delivered over the next year – GreenPower is in an excellent position to post strong top line growth going forward. Creative is not only a key factor in our strategy due to its size and market presence, but the firm can distribute and service our vehicles almost anywhere across the U.S. – thus expanding our visibility in areas outside California.”

GreenPower has now delivered 24 EV Stars to the following customers: Sacramento Regional Transit, University of California San Francisco, Port of Oakland, San Diego Parking Company, Green Commuter and now Creative Bus Sales. The recent expansion in Porterville California will be focused on the increased production of EV Stars. In February, the Company commenced production of 30 EV Stars, 15 of which have been delivered. In June, GreenPower commenced production on an additional 50 EV Stars where management expects 16 of these to be completed and ready for delivery at the end of August. Management anticipates that production will continue to increase month over month and is targeting over 30 units per month by the end of the calendar year.

The EV Star is the only bus in its class that comes with a standard J1772 level 2 and CCS DC fast charge combo system, allowing for optimal flexibility in route planning for any duty cycle. The EV Star is eligible for a base voucher of $90,000 from the California HVIP program and an additional voucher of $10,000 when the vehicle is operated in a disadvantaged community.
