CN Announces Purchase of 50 Made-in-Canada Electric Trucks
Canadian National Railways (CN) has just announced a deal to purchase 50 electric-powered trucks from Quebec-based company Lion Electric. The vehicles will be used for local deliveries within the largest markets served by CN, such as Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver.
The announcement was made via a press conference held in Montreal today. CN says the trucks will handle deliveries in cities, movement of containers and other transportation tasks.
Said Jean-Jacques Ruest, President and CEO of CN, the trucks will help “reduce greenhouse gas emissions, but also noise pollution. Trucks, let’s face it, are a little noisy.”
For Lion Electric, this represents the largest order received to date for its new truck. CN has been testing eight of the company’s trucks as part of a pilot project launched in 2019.
