Family-owned dealer serving the Denver and Las Vegas areas now offers the full line of GreenPower’s all-electric vehicles, including the EV Star Refrigerated Cargo Van and Box Truck.

GreenPower Motor Company’s full line of zero-emission vehicles, including the EV Star Refrigerated Cargo Van and Refrigerated Box Truck, now is available through McCandless Truck Center, which serves the Denver and Las Vegas metropolitan areas.

“GreenPower is pleased to welcome McCandless Truck Center to our network of commercial EV truck dealers,” Claus Tritt GreenPower vice president of medium-duty and commercial vehicle sales, said in a news release. “Through McCandless, GreenPower is well positioned to meet the needs of fleet owners in the Rocky Mountains and Southwest looking to convert their fleets to battery electric.

“We have a well-established inventory of EV Star Cab and Chassis and are prepared to upfit those vehicles through Lion Truck Body in order to deliver a product to the customer within 60 to 90 days, rather than six to nine months that customers face elsewhere.”

GreenPower provides purpose-built, all-electric, zero-emission medium- and heavy-duty vehicles for the cargo and delivery markets. McCandless will sell the vehicles at its locations in Aurora, Colorado, and North Las Vegas, Nevada, the companies reported. “In addition to its sales locations, McCandless enhances the service and parts network for our commercial vehicles,” Tritt added, noting that McCandless has service and parts centers in Colorado Springs, Grand Junction, Henderson and Pueblo, Colorado; and Cheyenne, Wyoming.

“McCandless prides itself on being a five-decade-old, family-owned, customer-centric operation,” said Scott McCandless, managing member of the McCandless Truck Center team. “We provide a one-stop-shop experience for our customers for all their sales, leasing, service, body shop, and parts needs. GreenPower also provides that same approach allowing the customer to work with one vendor, one point of contact, one place for sales and after-market service.

“When we partner with someone, we want to partner with a proven provider that we can trust to meet our customer needs.

“GreenPower is that partner in the all-electric, purpose-built commercial space.”

McCandless also now offers the EV Star Passenger Van, Mobility Plus, Cargo Van, Cargo Plus, and Stakebed Truck, along with a wide array of EV Star specialty products.

“As we reach the end of the tax year, all of these vehicles are eligible for the $40,000 tax credit under the federal Inflation Reduction Act,” Tritt concluded. “GreenPower’s team can assist any fleet operator or owner navigate the process to receive the most in credits, grants, and tax credits available.”
