GreenPower delivers five EV Star Cab and chassis to Forest River

The RV manufacturer, Forest River, has taken delivery of its first five purpose-built EV Star Cab and Chassis vehicles from GreenPower, a manufacturer and distributor of zero-emission, electric-powered, medium and heavy-duty vehicles.

Forest River will utilize the EV Star Cab and Chassis as part of its electrification strategy by building its top-tier body and integrating it with GreenPower’s purpose-built, zero-emission platform.  Forest River celebrated the delivery of their 100,000th bus in July of 2020, has over 10,000 employees, and has annual revenues in excess of $5 Billion. 

Brendan Riley, President of GreenPower, commented: “The initial focus will lie with the StarCraft cutaway bus product which represents a total addressable market of approximately 13,000 vehicles per year and Forest River accounts for approximately 9,000 of those units sold. This is the type of transformative partnership that GreenPower has sought out as the company has matured, and we look forward to working with a highly respected market leader such as Forest River to accelerate their electrification strategy.”

Ryne Shetterly, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at GreenPower, added: “Forest River brings tremendous volume potential and will be offering an all-electric StarCraft product that is exactly what the market needs. By integrating the top-rated body and the only scalable, purpose-built, electric chassis, the market can now rest assured they are getting a vehicle that will be safe, reliable, and serviceable.”  Shetterly continued, “We see a number of opportunities to collaborate with Forest River across their entire product line, and we are excited to complete this first delivery.”

GreenPower designs, builds and distributes a full suite of high-floor and low-floor all-electric medium and heavy-duty vehicles, including transit buses, school buses, shuttles, cargo van, and a cab and chassis.  GreenPower employs a clean-sheet design to manufacture all-electric vehicles that are purpose built to be battery powered with zero emissions while integrating global suppliers for key components. This OEM platform allows GreenPower to meet the specifications of various operators while providing standard parts for ease of maintenance and accessibility for warranty requirements. GreenPower was founded in Vancouver, Canada with primary operational facilities in southern California. For further information go to  www.greenpowermotor.com
