Canada-based GreenPower Motor Company has signed a contract to supply 10 of its EV350 40-foot electric transit buses to the City of Porterville, California.

The e-buses will be deployed on all 9 Porterville Transit routes. The $9-million order includes 11 charging systems to be installed at the city’s maintenance facility and transit center.

The first bus is to be delivered this fall, followed by the remaining 9 buses 3 to 4 months later. The city has an option to purchase an additional 20 buses on the same terms.

The EV350 bus features a 320 kWh LiFePO4 battery pack, and has an estimated range of 185 miles.

GreenPower offers a range of electric buses with both low-floor and high-floor bodies. GreenPower’s vehicles are based on a “clean sheet” design, and use a custom battery management system and a proprietary Flex Power system for the drive motors. Key suppliers include Siemens (drive motors), Knorr (brakes), ZF (axles) and Parker (dash and control systems).
