Why GreenPower Motor Stock Is Up Today


GreenPower Motor GP shares are trading higher after the company announced West Virginia purchased $15 million of its all-electric school buses.

What to Know: On Thursday, GreenPower Motor Company announced that it had received a $15 million order for 41 GreenPower Type D BEAST and Type A nano BEAST all-electric school buses.
