Vicinity Motor Corp., a supplier of electric, CNG, and clean diesel vehicles, announced July 14 it has received an initial order from a private operator in British Columbia for 10 VMC 1200 Class 3 trucks valued at over $1.0 million.
The Vicinity 1200 fully electric Class 3 truck is designed for urban environments and construction or delivery applications.
“As companies seek solutions to diversify their fleets and mitigate exposure to energy and carbon costs, we expect strong interest in the VMC 1200 and are pleased to have our first order so quickly," said William Trainer, founder and CEO of Vicinity Motor Corp.
Trainer believes market conditions are ideal for a medium-duty electric truck with a 6,000-pound load capacity, expected range up to 150 miles on a single charge, and a popular cab-over design.
"We expect to see additional orders as we continue to introduce the VMC 1200 across our dealer network to potential customers in a market that sees over 400,000 vehicles sold per year," he said.
The order of 10 VMC 1200 Class 3 trucks are scheduled for delivery in Q1 2022.
