Bison's Go-To-Market opportunity is huge and in advanced discussions with corporate owners of large fleets of school buses, delivery vans/trucks, and rental cars.
Our strategy focuses on vehicles with short routes, lengthy idle periods, and centrally located to charging stations making an affordable electric solution ideal.
up to $20 billion Market Opportunity
School buses are significant polluters and diesel exhaust causes serious health issues for student riders
up to 480,000 school buses are expected to go electric by 2030
Problem: Schools can't afford new electric buses ($275,000 to $375,000 each)
Solution: BisonEV converts diesel school buses to electric for 1/4 the cost ($50,000 to $100,000 each)
Last Mile Delivery Vans
market primed for electrification
EVs in commercial fleets may grow to up to 8 million by 2030, according to research by McKinsey & Company.
Problem: Replacing existing fleets with all new electric vehicles is expensive and difficult due to availability
Solution: BisonEV retrofitted vans and truck represent an affordable alternative to new EVs and operate at a cost up to 75% less than gasoline powered vehicles
Uber/Lyft - going 100% emissions free
Uber and Lyft have both committed to transition towards 100% emissions free by 2030
Problem: Less than 1% of the rideshare vehicles in the US are currently electric due to availability and cost
Solution: BisonEV converts used higher-end “black cars/SUVs” with significant mileage into electric
The combination of the vehicle’s depreciated price, significantly lower energy/operating costs and “emission free” incentives provided by ridesharing companies* makes electric conversions affordable for drivers
BisonEV is in current negotiations with DriveItAway, a major provider of rent-to-own options for rideshare drivers in the US**
* There is no guarantee that the existing “electric incentives” offered to drivers by ridesharing companies will continue
** There is no guarantee of any partnership between BisonEV and DriveItAway
