Momentum Dynamics and GreenPower Motor Co. Inc. announced a three-year OEM agreement to develop and sell wirelessly charged, purpose-built all-electric transit vehicles.
The first vehicle to integrate Momentum Dynamics’ high-power wireless charging will be GreenPower’s flagship model, the EV Star, a purpose built, 25-ft. mini shuttle capable of transporting 19 passengers.
The EV Star has completed the Federal Transit Administration’s rigorous Altoona testing and will satisfy purchasing requirements such as ADA and Buy America Compliance for transit agencies across North America. The vehicle will fill the transportation industry’s need for paratransit, microtransit, and shuttle bus applications and has a nominal range of 150 miles, and by adding automated wireless charging capability, the bus dramatically increases its operational range without the need for operator intervention, according to the companies.
The GreenPower EV Star with Momentum Dynamics wireless charging technology will be sold throughout the U.S., Canada, and Europe.
The news follows the recent Momentum Dynamics announcement with Link Transit of Wenatchee, Wash., for a five-year agreement extension to its current partnership. Momentum Dynamics will provide additional charging systems and ongoing services for Link Transit’s growing fleet of electric buses.
