Rizon, part of the Daimler Truck global family, is about to enter the Canadian market with its Class 4 and 5 electric trucks. Preorders will open in June 2024 with deliveries scheduled for the year’s end. The RIZON brand will be presented in Canada for the first time at Truck World in Toronto from April 18th– 20th. RIZON trucks first debuted in the U.S. in 2023 at the ACT Expo in Anaheim, California, and are now operating on American streets for a diverse range of customers.

The Canadian government has committed to achieving net-zero emissions by 2050 and has established an incentive program to encourage fleets to electrify. Companies and municipalities are now exploring sustainable fleet options to address environmental concerns and operational efficiency.

RIZON truck options that will be available in Canada

RIZON will offer four model variants for Canadian customers, the e16L, e16M, e18L, and the e18M, with a versatile mix of configurations and options suitable for each customer’s unique requirements, ranging from 15,995 to 18,850 pounds in gross vehicle weight (GVW). The vehicles can run up to 257 km (for L size variant with 3 battery packs) and up to 177 km (for M size variant with 2 battery packs) on a single charge.

Starting Q4 2024, RIZON vehicles will be distributed in Canada through an exclusive agreement with Velocity Electric Vehicle Canada, an established name in the commercial vehicle industry. With sales consultants and technicians experienced in commercial e-mobility, Velocity touchpoints will serve as one-stop shops for customers interested in making the jump to electric trucks.

“Canada is very advanced regarding green energy and infrastructure, and is a natural next step for RIZON’s second market,” said Andreas Deuschle, the Global Head of RIZON Truck. “So, we are very happy to bring our zero-emission solution to Canadian customers. They are proven OEM trucks with the latest technology from Daimler Truck. RIZON is the best Class 4-5 fully electric truck money can buy.”
