Lion Electric launches LionCapital Solutions

The Lion Electric Co. announced the launch of LionCapital Solutions, a new division dedicated to providing customers with flexible financing solutions specifically tailored to the medium- and heavy-duty electric vehicle market. Leveraging Lion’s existing vehicle financing alternatives, LionCapital Solutions will commercialize a programmatic financing offering that can be deployed at scale and is specifically designed for Lion school buses, Lion trucks and related charging infrastructure, including loans, leasing and monetization of carbon credits. LionCapital Solutions will work jointly with the company’s commercial, operations, and finance teams to integrate financing solutions into Lion’s turnkey fleet electrification package. LionCapital Solutions will maximize access to funding, eliminate or reduce upfront capital requirements, simplify the financing process and ultimately allow customers to benefit from a favorable total cost of ownership from day one.

LionCapital Solutions will be under the leadership of William Blanchard, who previously held senior positions in financial institutions and has extensive experience in executing complex financing transactions. Most recently, Mr. Blanchard served as Director in Investment Banking at BMO Capital Markets.
