The Lion Electric Co. and Boivin Evolution (BEV) announced the first sales of Lion8 chassis with fully automated side load bodies to Waste Connections, Inc., a leading provider of non-hazardous solid waste collection, transfer, recycling and disposal services in the US and Canada. The introduction of these electric vehicles into markets in Washington and Florida will represent the first applications of zero-emission trucks with fully electric waste collection bodies and automated arms in North America.

For Waste Connections, this investment furthers the company's sustainability efforts and is consistent with its commitment to growing and expanding its environmental initiatives through technology and innovation. Developed for the electric market, the combination of the Lion8 chassis and the BEV all-electric automated side-loading body offers a cost-effective waste management solution, which reduces greenhouse gas emissions.

“We are excited to lead the industry with the introduction of the Lion-Boivin electric vehicles to our markets and look forward to expanding their application,” said Worthing F. Jackman, President and CEO of Waste Connections. “This investment in zero emission vehicles furthers our continuing efforts to reduce our environmental impact and expand our capabilities within the communities we serve.”

The Lion8 with BEV has a range of 130 miles for a full day of operation (1,200 homes) on a single charge. It offers optimal visibility and turning radius without any greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions or noise pollution. All arm and body movements are powered by the battery that drives electric motors for each function, therefore there are no hydraulic pumps, valves, tubings, hoses and fluid.

Overnight recharging when the truck is not in operation and when demand for electricity is lower, reduces energy costs, with savings of up to 80%. Service costs are 60% lower thanks to the simple, low-maintenance electric powertrain that has few components. The Lion8 with BEV offers oil-free operation with very few moving parts. The brakes last longer due to regenerative braking system.

“We are thankful to Waste Connections for leading the heavy-duty electric movement and we are excited that they have chosen Lion in assisting them for their transition to a zero-emission fleet. I am highly confident that Lion's all-electric refuse trucks will be a valuable addition to Waste Connection's operations. I hope this transaction inspires everyone seeking an economic, sustainable and environmental transportation solution to leverage the substantial benefits of electrification,” said Marc Bedard, CEO and Founder, The Lion Electric Co.

“We are proud to have been chosen by Waste Connections for the electrification of their fleet of refuse collection trucks. This introduction of electric vehicles is the beginning of a new tendency towards a cleaner environment,” added Claude Boivin, Founder and CEO, Boivin Evolution.
