GoBolt, Lightning eMotors partnership to deploy all-electric vans, trucks

Lightning eMotors, a provider of zero emissions, medium-duty commercial vehicles and electric vehicle technology for fleets, announced it has entered into a strategic partnership with GoBolt, a sustainable logistics provider, to manufacture 170 all-electric cargo vans and box trucks over the next 12 months. These vehicles will be deployed across the U.S. and Canada.

As part of this agreement, Lightning eMotors will deliver 70 Class 3 zero-emission, all-electric cargo vans and 100 Class 5 zero-emission, all-electric box trucks. Deployment of the Class 3 vans is already underway. The fleet will feature a mix of 80kWh and 120kWh battery capacity vans with an expected range of up to 200 miles per charge. Development of the Class 5 box trucks is in progress, with deliveries targeted to begin early next year.

Toronto-based GoBolt recently announced it has expanded operations into the U.S., positioning
the company to reach 12.75 million additional households with a simplified, customer-centric, and sustainable approach to vertical supply chain integration.

GoBolt selected Lightning as its high-volume commercial EV partner after testing and evaluating several commercial medium-duty EVs on the market and after visiting Lightning’s R&D and manufacturing facility in Colorado. Lightning’s mature and active production facility stood apart when compared with other EV companies relative to advanced technology integration, efficiency, and volume of new and repowered vehicles in production.

Lightning has been providing Class 3-7 zero-emission, all-electric commercial vehicles to customers for more than four years. More than 300 of these zero-emission fleet vehicles have racked up over 2,500,000 all-electric miles as market demand has continued to increase. In total, Lightning vehicles have accumulated over 6 million low- or zero-emission, real world fleet miles. Lightning offers a wide range of all-electric vehicles to customers across more vehicle classes than its competitors and has announced development of its own Lightning e-Chassis for deployment next year.

In addition to vehicles, Lightning Energy will be providing both AC level 2 and DC fast chargers
to support the vehicle deployment.
