Company Maintains Clear Market Leadership for Conventional and EV Transit Buses in North America

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / June 21, 2021 / Vicinity Motor Corp. (TSXV:VMC)(OTCQX:BUSXF)(FRA:6LG) ('Vicinity Motor' or the 'Company') (formerly Grande West Transportation Group Inc.), a leading supplier of electric, CNG, gas and clean diesel vehicles, today announced the receipt of a new purchase order from Québec Private Transit Operator Le Groupe Transbus for three (3) Vicinity™ Classic buses.

Per the terms of the supply agreement, Le Groupe Transbus has ordered three of the Company's 30-foot Clean-Diesel Vicinity™ Classic buses. The Vicinity buses are in service with Canadian public transit agency EXO, serving the city of Varennes, a suburb of Montreal. Transbus currently owns and operates nine Vicinity™ Classic buses, with this order bringing the total to 12 in its fleet.

'Our Vicinity™ Classic buses continue to prove their market leadership and flagship status with Canadian transit authorities as we attract recurring orders from our large base of satisfied, long-term customers,' said William Trainer, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Vicinity Motor Corp. 'We look forward to growing alongside our North American transit partners as they deploy an increasingly large fleet of our buses and eventually transition to an EV-oriented fleet. Vicinity's recent contract award with Calgary Transit is the first significant competitive tender in Canada for mid-size electric buses. The Vicinity Lightning™ product is already showing to be an early leader in the EV transit market space and is ready for this transition.'
