GreenPower Motor Company Inc. a leading manufacturer and distributor of purpose-built, all-electric, zero-emission medium and heavy-duty vehicles serving the cargo and delivery market, shuttle and transit space and school bus sector, announced that the New Jersey Zero-Emission Incentive Program (NJ ZIP) is open and available statewide.
These financial incentives will further the adoption of all-electric vehicles in New Jersey by helping fleets to transition to battery-electric vehicles.
NJ ZIP is a $90 million voucher program launched by the New Jersey Economic Development Authority for medium and heavy-duty zero-emission vehicles. GreenPower is an approved NJ ZIP manufacturer which allows GreenPower's New Jersey customers to order vehicles under the voucher program. The vouchers range from a base of $65,000 for GreenPower's EV Star vehicles up to $218,750 for the Type D all-electric BEAST school bus. NJ ZIP offers additional vouchers of 25% of the base voucher amount for small businesses, 10% for overburdened communities and 4% for other eligible businesses.
"GreenPower's EV Star lineup of products is in strong demand under the New Jersey ZIP program," said Claus Tritt, Vice President of Medium Duty & Commercial Vehicle Sales at GreenPower. "Our participation as an approved manufacturer allows GreenPower to help the program reach its all-electric adoption acceleration and zero-emission goals."
The EV Star platform is comprised of several purpose-built, multi-utility, zero-emission vehicles with a battery pack of 118 kWh, a payload of up to 6,500 pounds and a range of 150 miles. The EV Star platform includes a range of GreenPower passenger vehicles and cargo vehicles for mid and last-mile delivery needs. The EV Star can charge up to 19.2kW using a Level 2 charger, or at a higher rate using a DC fast charger.
"GreenPower remains committed to providing a better, cleaner and safer transportation future," Tritt continued. "Our knowledge and expertise in successfully working with such impactful incentive programs like NJ ZIP puts GreenPower in a position to help its customers and others navigate through the voucher program for maximum impact."
