Hard work has paid off for Vicinity Motors which today proudly announced an initial order of 14 Vicinity Lightning™ EV buses worth $6 million from Calgary transit.
CEO William Trainer provided a comment with the announcement:
“Calgary Transit is one of Canada’s leading transit authorities, with a strong commitment to reducing vehicle emissions and environmental impact,” said William Trainer, Founder and CEO of Vicinity Motor Corp. “This first order marks the beginning of a valuable partnership with Calgary Transit as they diversify their fleet and mitigate exposure to energy and carbon costs.
“As cities around the world seek to meet climate goals, the demand for sustainable, zero emission transit options like our breakthrough Vicinity Lightning™ EV will continue to grow. We look forward to introducing our electric vehicles to the people of Calgary in the short-term and continuing to build value for our shareholders with the continued momentum in our next-generation Vicinity Lightning™ EV line.”
ESG Comment: Calgary Transit has the potential to become avery big customer for Vicinity Motors since they have a fleet of over 1000 buses. The contract that was signed runs over 5 years with an option to buy additional vehicles. The order is expected to be delivered in 2022.
Vicinity Motors most likely won this bid over other several actors since this was a public bid process. We see it as a very strong sign of the customer adaption and customer service orientated focus that Vicinity Motors has displayed to win this bid. Their Vicinity Lightning™ EV buses seems to constitute the best value for money in the public transit market judging by this recent order. This order is also most likely the first of many as a result of winning public bidding processes.
