GreenPower Motor Co. Inc., a leading manufacturer and distributor of purpose-built, all-electric, zero-emission medium- and heavy-duty vehicles serving the cargo and delivery market, recently announced that the New Jersey Zero-Emission Incentive Program is open and available statewide. These financial incentives will further the adoption of all-electric vehicles in New Jersey by helping fleets 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, multiutility, zero-emission vehicles with a battery pack of 118 kilowatt-hours, 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.”
