VICINITY MOTOR CORP. RECEIVES $3.5 MILLION CAD ORDER FOR EIGHT VICINITY CLASSIC BUSES TO FIRST TRANSIT
COMPANY'S LEGACY PRODUCT LINE; MAINTAINS CLEAR MARKET LEADERSHIP FOR MID-SIZE HEAVY-DUTY TRANSIT BUSES IN CANADA
Vicinity Motor Corp. has received a new $3.5-million purchase order from North American private transit operator First Transit Inc. for eight Vicinity Classic buses.
Per the terms of the supply agreement, First Transit has ordered eight of the company's 35-foot Vicinity Classic buses for delivery in 2022. The buses will service the city of Yellowknife, Canada.
"Our Vicinity Classic buses continue to prove their popularity within the North American transit market as we continue to attract new orders from our continent-wide base of customers," said William Trainer, founder and chief executive officer of Vicinity Motor. "Our ability to grow alongside our customers and fulfill many of their transit needs as a one-stop shop is invaluable, particularly as many transit authorities begin to evaluate electric vehicles to supplement or replace their conventional diesel fleets in service today.
"I look forward to working closely with the team at First Transit to deliver these vehicles by end of year. Our goal is to improve the quality of public transit to the citizens of Yellowknife while concurrently reducing operating costs for transit operators -- thereby creating sustainable value not only for our shareholders, but for all stakeholders," concluded Mr. Trainer.
