At the IMPULSION MTL event and in the presence of a large crowd of industry insiders, The Lion Electric Co. (Lion) and Boivin Évolution (BEV) unveiled the world's first Class 8 truck with a powertrain and automated collection hopper that are 100% electric.
For the first time, a zero-emission truck with a fully electric waste collection hopper and automated arm will be put into service.
Yet another sign of success for Quebec ingenuity
By combining their expertise, Quebec companies Lion and BEV have been able to push the limits of innovation and the electrification of heavy-duty vehicles even further. Conceived, designed, and manufactured for the electric market, the Lion8 chassis and the BEV all-electric automated side-loading hopper will be used to collect household waste, recycling, and organic material.
Never before have waste collection trucks been so beneficial to our planet, our society, and our quality of life.
