Are there electric vans and box trucks?

Yes! Big automakers like Ford and General Motors have new electric vans for fleet managers looking to make the switch in Canada, and lesser know innovators like Workhorse and the Canadian Greenpower also have vans available for Canadian orders. A Canadian company, Lion Electric, is one of the leaders in the electric truck space, and Vicinity Motor Corp. has a Class 3 electric truck that is now available for pre-order. A few semi-trucks are open to orders from north of the border, including Freightliner’s eCascadia, the Peterbilt 579EV, and others from Volvo, Kenworth and Workhorse.
