Colorado-based sustainable fleet solutions provider Lightning eMotors has secured a contract from Canadian commercial vehicle distributor Macnab EV Sales for the supply of 126 zero-emission vehicles by the end of 2023.
The deal includes Lightning’s ZEV3 cargo and passenger van configurations and ZEV4 shuttle buses. Macnab plans to deploy these vehicles at a variety of locations across Canada.
Deliveries of ZEV3 vans to Macnab have already begun, the U.S. firm says.
“It’s an honor – and a testament to the quality and reliability of our vehicles – to receive this order from Macnab as they begin their foray into commercial EVs,” said Tim Reeser, CEO of Lightning eMotors. “We are proud they chose Lightning vehicles for their customer EV offering and look forward to getting these vehicles into customers’ hands this year as we further expand our footprint in Canada.”
The contract comes as Lightning eMotors ramps up production of its new GM-based ZEV4 platform, which includes school buses, box trucks, and shuttle bus configurations. Additionally, the company notes that its mobile DC fast charging system, Lightning Mobile, is currently in production and will be available to customers in the coming months.
