ADOMANI® Receives Purchase Order for Additional Electric School Bus Drivetrain Systems
“Powered By ADOMANI” Drivetrain Order to Help Support Testing, Production Process and Demonstration Unit Demand from Blue Bird’s Network of 46 US Dealers
CORONA, CA / ACCESSWIRE / January 18, 2018 / ADOMANI, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADOM) acknowledged the receipt of a purchase order from Blue Bird Corporation for zero-emission electric drivetrain systems for Type-C and Type-D school buses. These drivetrain systems are the next step in Blue Bird’s continued performance benchmarking, durability testing and production process refinements as it proceeds towards its 2018 production ramping goals. Once completed, these electric school buses will join the existing Type-C and Type-D buses that were unveiled at industry events earlier this year and featured at ride-and-drive events in Columbus, Ohio, Lansing, Michigan, Fort Valley, Georgia and throughout California.
“There are purchase incentives available for electric school buses in California and New York ranging from $150,000 and $220,000 for each electric school bus and Volkswagen Mitigation Trust funds potentially available on the horizon that other states could direct towards the purchase of electric school buses,” said Jim Reynolds, President and CEO of ADOMANI. “Combine this with the fact that the final product is coming from the premier school bus industry leader with an established dealership network for sales, maintenance, warranty, and the choice of these zero-emission school buses is very compelling.”
It is anticipated that Blue Bird dealers in the United States will begin accepting customer purchase orders later this month for the “Powered by ADOMANI” zero-emission electric school buses and that deliveries for the Type-D All American will begin in mid-2018.
