Canadian truck and bus manufacturer Lion Electric has just launched its brand-new Lion5 all-electric Class 5 truck. The vehicle is powered by LionBattery packs, the company’s new in-house engineered and manufactured 800V battery packs.

This unveiling took place during the Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo, last week in Anaheim, California. This new all-electric commercial truck cab chassis has design features desired in GVWR (“Gross Vehicle Weight Rating”) Class 5, while offering configurations of 19,500 lbs. up through 26,000 lbs. (Class 6) GVWR.

Lion Electric’s Lion5 truck for last mile delivery

At the front, the Lion5’s cab provides considerable roominess, and has been purposefully designed to be stationary with a cutaway configuration option enabling seamless passthrough between the cab and any suitable body upfit. The Lion5 has been engineered to be upfit with any suitable body application.  Body builders have access to 4kW of low voltage and up to 32kW of high voltage when equipped with the optional provisioned ePTO (“electric Power Take-Off”) interface.
