Lion Electric (Lion), a manufacturer of zero-emission vehicles, has announced that H.K. Truck Center, a New Jersey-based truck dealership, will distribute, sell and service Lion’s complete lineup of zero-emission buses and trucks in the state.
Under the agreement, H.K. Truck Center will serve as the regional dealer for Lion’s portfolio of heavy-duty battery electric vehicles, including its Class 5 to Class 8 heavy-duty truck offerings, as well as the LionA, LionC, LionD and LionM bus models. Lion’s heavy-duty zero-emission trucks are available in a variety of configurations, including straight truck, tractor, reefer, bucket and refuse trucks, and can travel up to 250 miles on a single charge. Lion will also provide H.K. Truck Center’s technicians with extensive service training for its vehicles.
The move marks Lion’s expansion into the New Jersey market and furthers the company’s commitment in expanding zero-emission transit throughout the Northeast, in addition to its existing Experience Center in Albany, NY, the company says.
Lion says all of its vehicles are purpose-built for electric propulsion, and are manufactured at Lion’s Canadian facility, which has a current capacity to produce 2,500 electric trucks per year.
