% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Vicinity Motor Corp (CVE:VMC) (OTCQX:BUSXF) (FRA:6LG) reported a 588% year-over-year increase in its first-quarter 2021 revenue to C$27.3 million as the company delivered 67 buses during the period, about 10 times more than a year ago.

Vicinity also swung to a quarterly profit of $2 million, or $0.07 per share, from a net loss of $1.7 million, or $0.07 per share, in the same quarter a year earlier.  

“The first quarter of 2021 was a blockbuster quarter by any measure, having delivered 20% more buses in the first three months of 2021 than we did in all of 2020 combined,” Vicinity Motor CEO William Trainer said in a statement.

“We continue to see incredible traction in the marketplace, having most notably signed ABC Companies as a distributor of our products in the large US market. The sales from that partnership, paired with the ongoing execution of our core business, positions us well for a strong 2021 – a true testament to the unrivaled value we bring to our customers.”

The company noted it expects “to see robust year-over-year growth throughout the remainder of 2021,” as it continues its drive towards creating a more sustainable public transportation system. 

It added that it anticipates leveraging its current momentum to accelerate the launch of next-generation electric vehicle (EV) products, including the company’s Vicinity Lightning EV, as well as other to-be-announced EV opportunities it said it is currently pursuing.

Vicinity Motor ended the quarter with $20.8 million in working capital as of March 31, up from $16.7 million at the end of December.

Vicinity Motor is currently developing an assembly facility in Washington State that will be capable of producing 1,000 electric, CNG, gas, and clean-diesel units annually across all sizes and powertrains. 

The company has three bus models - heavy-duty (diesel and compressed natural gas), medium-duty (electric vehicle EV), and light-duty (gasoline, diesel, and CNG). A fourth heavy-duty EV bus is currently under development.
