ANAHEIM, CA / November 22, 2023 / Phoenix Motor Inc. (NASDAQ:PEV) (“Company” or “Phoenix”), a leading electrification solutions provider for medium-duty vehicles, today announced an awarded contract by the Florida Sheriffs Association’s Cooperative Purchasing Program, enabling schools to procure and purchase Phoenix’s all-electric Type A school buses.

This Cooperative Purchasing Contract is expected to give any public school in Florida the ability to purchase zero-emission school buses more efficiently at a competitive price, without having to go through a bid process. Other contracting agencies outside of Florida are also able to use this contract, which will be valid for one year with an option to extend it to two.

“Phoenix is making great strides in the electric school bus industry,” said Denton Peng, CEO of Phoenix. “We are excited about the opportunity to provide clean transportation and to have a positive impact on the air quality in communities in which our vehicles operate. This contract award, coupled with the availability of numerous incentive programs, should provide a clear path for schools to procure zero-emission electric school buses for their communities.”

Phoenix’s Type-A electric school buses are offered with either a 90kWh or 141kWh battery pack and can be purchased with or without an ADA-compliant wheelchair lift.

One available funding source which is currently available across the U.S. is the EPA’s Clean School Bus Rebate Program which offers between $145,000 and $265,000 per Type-A School Bus. Each Phoenix school bus is also eligible for a federal tax credit.

“The Florida Sheriffs Association (FSA) Cooperative Purchasing Program is excited to welcome Phoenix Motorcars to our heavy trucks & buses contract,” said FSA Executive Director Steve Casey. “The new FSA contract will streamline the procurement process for local governments and municipalities, improving mobility and safety for the ever-increasing number of Floridians.”
