MONTRÉAL — The Lion Electric Company has launched a new lightweight, aerodynamic, 100 per cent electric heavy-duty truck developed under an upfitter partnership model.

Transit designed Lion Electric’s latest vehicle,  building on features of the Lion6 which the company says is a ligher model suited for urban roads.

The government of Quebec has helped to fund the Mobel mobilization project which developed Lion Electric’s latest model.

“The completion of this project is a huge step forward for Transit. We have always been committed to innovation and providing customers with efficient, high-performance products. We’re focused on designing the green truck boxes of tomorrow. That’s why we’re excited to introduce the e-Classik box mounted on a Lion6 chassis. 40 percent lighter, it’s an innovative product that is available right now in both Canada and the United States, and it is an important tool in our customers’ transition to EV journey,” said Louis Leclair, Transit president in a statement.
