Municipalities are transitioning towards low carbon fleets. As electric drivetrain technologies and components move into the mainstream market, fleet electrification of pickup trucks, vans, and class 3-5 trucks is still challenging. During this webinar Lightning eMotors presented their solutions for converting medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles into EVs by designing, manufacturing, and installing electric drivetrains.
Lightening eMotors will be part of Sourcewell starting April. They worked through Merx to win the competitive bid with one of Canada’s largest mail providers. They are also participating in the Vancouver bit on battery-operated CCTV CAMERA VAN. This all to say that it is an opportunity for those municipalities who want to do a pilot project.
