VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / September 26, 2023 / Vicinity Motor Corp. (NASDAQ:VEV)(TSXV:VMC) ("Vicinity" or the "Company"), a North American supplier of commercial electric vehicles, today announced the receipt of a new purchase order from the Village of New Square, New York for four (4) VicinityTM Classic buses.

Per the terms of the supply agreement, the Village of New Square has ordered four of the Company's 32-foot Clean-Diesel VicinityTM Classic buses for delivery in the fourth quarter of 2023. The Vicinity buses will service New Square, a village north of New York City, providing enhanced mobility solutions through the low-floor design - which includes an automatic personal mobility aid access ramp for wheelchairs.

"We continue to leverage the market leadership position of our Classic bus line as a foundational building block of our revenue mix," said William Trainer, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Vicinity Motor Corp. "In addition, we view our VicinityTM Classic line as an opening partnership with communities that could evolve into EV sales in the future.

"From large public transportation systems to small communities, our Vicinity Classic and Lightning mid-size buses - running on electric, compressed natural gas (CNG), or clean-diesel powertrains - have proven popular among transit operators seeking a competitive and reliable product with unmatched durability, as compared to cut-away buses built on a truck chassis. We look forward fulfilling the immediate needs of the Village of New Square community with the delivery of these vehicles later this year," concluded Trainer.
