We look forward to servicing countless travelers throughout Quebec with these exciting new bus orders.”

“We are leveraging the strong sales of VicinityTM buses to position us for early leadership and growth for our electric vehicle offerings including the Vicinity LightningTM EV and VMC 1200 Class 3 Truck. Both of our EV product lines are showing accelerating momentum with firm orders of 29 Vicinity LightningTM EV buses currently in production, with many more that we believe will be ordered in the near-term. We believe our wide lineup of both traditional and electrified vehicles will allow us to further expand our market share throughout North America, addressing all opportunities and helping to create sustainable value for our shareholders over the long-term,” concluded Trainer.

ESG comment:
Vicinity Motors continues to add impressive orders. The one announced in this press release likely won’t be delivered until 2022 however we still feel sure that the company will meet our expectations for revenues totalling 55-60 MCAD for fiscal year 2021!
