New Orders Marks Seventh Consecutive Order with Vicinity, Illustrating the Company's Commitment to Building Long-Term, Multi-Order Relationships

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / September 14, 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 Simcoe County in Ontario, Canada for four (4) Vicinity™ Classic buses valued at over CAD$1.9 million, marking its 7th re-order from Vicinity.

Per the terms of the supply agreement, Simcoe County has ordered four of the Company's 35-foot Clean-Diesel Vicinity™ Classic buses for delivery in 2024. The Vicinity buses will service Simcoe County LINX, a public transit system that links major urban hubs and local transit services in the County of Simcoe. Simcoe is an unincorporated community in Southwestern Ontario, Canada near Lake Erie.

"Our classic transit bus continues to grow our backlog, illustrating why we continue to serve as the dominant Canadian supplier in the mid-sized heavy-duty bus market with longstanding blue chip customer relationships across North America," said William Trainer, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Vicinity Motor Corp. "Partnerships with communities such as Simcoe County are important, helping to fulfill their current transit needs as they target efficiency opportunities and prioritize future projects that reduce energy and greenhouse gas emissions for their public transportation systems.

"We look forward to working closely with Simcoe County again to deliver these vehicles in the coming year. Our goal is to improve the quality of public transit to the half million citizens of Simcoe while concurrently reducing operating costs for its transit operators, creating sustainable value for both our shareholders and their communities," concluded Trainer.
