GreenPower to Attend APTA Expo and Exhibit Innovative Thirty-Foot All-Electric Bus

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - October 05, 2017) - GreenPower Motor Company Inc. (TSX VENTURE: GPV) (OTCQX: GPVRF) ("GreenPower") will be attending the triennial American Public Transportation Association (APTA) Expo in Atlanta, Georgia from October 9th to 11th, 2017. The company will be exhibiting its EV250 thirty-foot all-electric low floor transit bus.

Available in either a one- or two-door model, GreenPower's EV250 is the only standard width (102"), thirty-foot all-electric low floor transit bus on the market today. An operational "must" for most transit properties, standard width buses allow for the installation of a front door wheel chair ramp as well as seating for up to 28 passengers plus standees. Additionally, a standard battery configuration of 210 kWh allows operators to operate the vehicle for most routes on only a single charge. GreenPower can also increase battery capacity for longer range requirements.

GreenPower will be at booth 8265 in the Exposition hall. For private showings contact Colby@greenpowerbus.com
