Commercial EV specialist Endera has acquired Metro Titan, a school and shuttle bus manufacturing company. The acquisition gives Endera the capability to deliver electric commercial vehicles in all 50 states.
From its Ohio-based facility, Endera will manufacture electric Type A school buses, shuttle buses, and paratransit vehicles for the DOT, healthcare, airport, university, corporate, municipal and last-mile transportation industries, all built on electrified Ford and Chevrolet chassis.
“We are excited to headquarter our manufacturing in Ohio, which is quickly becoming known as the Silicon Valley of electric vehicles,” said Todd Harman, President of Endera. “With so much local EV talent and over 250,000 square feet of dedicated manufacturing space on a 1,000,000 square foot campus, we [expect] to have the capability to produce tens to hundreds of thousands of vehicles in the near future.”
“The electric school bus industry is ripe for electrification,” said John Walsh, founder and CEO of Endera. “Through Endera’s acquisition of Metro Titan, we will continue our efforts to provide commercial electric vehicles with smart technology and lower total cost of ownership for school bus fleets.”
