Over the last year, the Company has transitioned its strong product development and marketing platform to collaborate with world-class partners to expand its EV product lines into exciting new market segments.

“Commercial EV adoption is set to increase as manufacturers offer increasingly competitive products and governments implement stricter policies, increase charging infrastructure and offer incentives. Vicinity’s C$140 million 2022 revenue guidance and expanding lineup of commercial EVs, combined with growing manufacturing capacity and distribution, is an exciting story to share with the investment community,” concluded Sydenham.
