Goodfood Market Corp, one of Canada’s largest online grocery companies has just received ten fully-electric refrigerated delivery vans from Lightning eMotors. The Vans will be deployed in the Montreal Area.
“We knew right away Lightning eMotors was the right partner to develop vehicles to help us meet our specific needs and support our larger payloads,” said Goodfood President and Chief Operating Officer, Neil Cuggy. “Our drivers have already told us that this fleet of delivery vans are great to drive and are meeting our customer needs. Based on this early feedback, we are looking forward to the possibility of expanding this fleet in the near future,” he extrapolated.
Lightning eMotors says that this delivery is Canada’s first deployment of a fully electric refrigerated vehicle fleet. The deployment also marks Lightning eMotors’ entry into Canada’s commercial electric vehicle market.
Tim Reeser, CEO of Lightning eMotors said: “While this is our first customer in Canada, we see tremendous potential for growth as demand for last-mile delivery continues to increase and through the many other electric commercial vehicles we offer.”
