GREENPOWER ALL-ELECTRIC DOUBLE-DECKER BUSES FOR CANADA
GreenPower Motor Co. Inc. completed the sale of two EV550 all-electric double-decker buses to CVS Cruise Victoria, which will primarily be used for transportation of tourists from the cruise ship terminal at Ogden Point in Victoria, Canada.
To facilitate the purchase, GreenPower worked with a third-party leasing company to create a five-year leasing program specifically designed for CVS. This facility is also available to CVS for future purchases of EV550 all-electric double decker buses or other GreenPower products.
The deployment of GreenPower’s zero-emission vehicles has found a welcome home in an area that has made pollution mitigation a top priority. The latest Ogden Point Master Plan states that minimizing “negative impacts on the neighboring community” is a key objective as part of the development of a “valuable cultural and recreational amenity for the region.” The Greater Victoria Harbour Authority (GVHA), which oversees the cruise ship operations at Ogden Point, has set a goal of reducing the diesel emissions, smell and noise from the buses presently servicing the cruise ships to “build a world-class tourism and visitor experience.”
