ADOMANI Takes Delivery of First All-Electric Type-D School Bus
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., June 21, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ADOMANI, Inc. (NASDAQ:ADOM), a provider of advanced zero-emission and hybrid vehicle drivetrain solutions, and purpose built electric vehicles has taken delivery of its first All-Electric Type-D School Bus. The 72-passenger bus uses the latest electric drivetrain and battery technologies and meets certain California and federal requirements that must be satisfied in order to refer to the vehicle as “zero-emissions” which opens up grant and incentive funding opportunities. For example, the bus has already been awarded a place on the California Air Resources Board’s (CARB) Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project’s (HVIP) coveted Vehicle Eligibility List for a voucher amount of $95,000 and under certain circumstances up to $120,000. HVIP offers point-of-sale incentives for clean trucks and buses in California. HVIP dealers offer reduced-price vehicles directly to purchasers. Purchasers do not need to submit proposals, complicated paper work or wait to be reimbursed. Incentives are locked in at the time of the purchase order.
ADOMANI will be taking its bus on tour, beginning with California schools that have been selected by the South Coast Air Quality Management District and the thirteen successful applicants for the North Coast Unified Air Quality Management District for funding directly tied to the purchases of all-electric school buses.
“ADOMANI’s focus is on zero-emission drivetrain systems that are safe, reliable and durable, and that also potentially lower maintenance and fueling budgets and improve the air quality for the operators, student passengers and the communities where they operate,” said ADOMANI CEO Jim Reynolds. “Having extensive experience in this area, the ADOMANI team will be in attendance at the annual School Bus Transportation News (STN) Conference and Trade Show in Reno, Nevada in early July and plans to meet with interested transportation directors about their electric school bus options. It’s going to be an exciting event.”
ADOMANI, Inc. is a provider of zero-emission electric and hybrid drivetrain systems for integration in new school buses and medium to heavy-duty commercial fleet vehicles, as well as re-power conversion kits for the replacement of drivetrain systems in combustion-powered vehicles. ADOMANI® is also a provider of new zero-emission electric and hybrid vehicles focused on reducing the total cost of vehicle ownership and helps fleet operators unlock the benefits of green technology and address the challenges of traditional fuel price instability and local, state and federal environmental regulatory compliance.
