GreenPower Motor Company, a manufacturer and distributor of zero-emission electric-powered vehicles serving the cargo, delivery, shuttle, transit and school bus markets, has announced its AV Star will be used as a demo vehicle at CES 2022 as part of Perrone Robotics’ Innovation Alley demonstration track.
The AV Star is a fully-autonomous, zero-emission all-electric, ADA-compliant shuttle, which was developed along with Perrone Robotics. The announcement comes on the heels of the company’s OEM agreement with Perrone, building on the success of the original AV Star developed for the Jacksonville Transportation Authority (JTA).
“Together with GreenPower and First Transit, we are thrilled to provide CES attendees with an opportunity to experience firsthand and ride in the AV Star,” said Paul Perrone, CEO and founder of Perrone Robotics. “The AV Star was developed to meet the demand for autonomous shuttle offerings for the transit and transportation sector.”
CES attendees will be able to ride around a 556-foot track as part of the Innovation Alley area, outside the West Hall, from Wednesday, Jan. 5, 2022 through Saturday, Jan. 8, 2022.
“We’re excited that our AV Star will be on display for demonstration rides at the upcoming CES with Perrone Robotics,” said Fraser Atkinson, CEO of GreenPower. “CES celebrates the next generation of innovation, and we are honored to be a part of that mission.
