GreenPower Motor Company Inc. a manufacturer and distributor of zero-emission medium and heavy-duty vehicles serving the cargo and delivery market, shuttle and transit space and school bus sector, has appointed Kingmor Supply, Inc. as its dealer for all-electric school buses in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
“We are excited to partner with Kingmor so that GreenPower's all-electric, purpose-built, zero-emission Type D BEAST and Type A Nano BEAST school buses are available for these school districts and kids,” said vice president of school bus contracts and grants at GreenPower Michael Perez in a recent news release.
This comes soon after GreenPower delivered the same buses to their dealer in California.
Kingmor is a family-run business that has been offering services in the bus business for 43 years. With three locations in the commonwealth – Mount Crawford (Central), Manassas (Northern), and Hampton (Tidewater) – Kingmor offers a full line of parts and service products as well as road and on-site services.
Kingmor is aligned with 13 servicing facilities in the commonwealth.
The GreenPower Type D BEAST and Type A Nano BEAST all-electric, purpose-built school buses are now available to school districts in Virginia through Kingmor Supply.
"Partnering with GreenPower for the Type A Nano BEAST and the Type D BEAST will round out Kingmor's offerings across the entire line of diversified needs of the transportation community," said Floyd Morris, Kingmor president.
GreenPower's BEAST is a purpose-built, 40-foot Type D all-electric, zero-emission school bus with seating for up to 90 passengers. Designed from the ground up as an all-electric vehicle, the BEAST features an integrated chassis with an all-aluminum body, allowing for pass-through storage underneath the bus.
The dual port charging is standard, with level 2 rates up to 19.2 kW and DC fast-charging rates up to 85 kW, with wireless charging is also available as an option.
The Nano BEAST has a standard 118kwh battery pack and a range of up to 150 miles.
