Motiv delivers 55 electric trucks to Purolator

California-headquartered Motiv, a manufacturer of Class 4 to 6 electric trucks, has completed delivery of 55 trucks to Canadian shipping company Purolator. The new trucks were ordered following Purolator’s successful pilot of five Motiv trucks in 2021. They will be used on daily routes in Richmond and Vancouver, British Columbia, and in Quebec City and Montreal, Quebec.

Motiv provided support in British Columbia during Purolator’s pilot program, and plans to expand its support operations across Canada as Purolator adds Motiv trucks to its fleets. Purolator plans to invest around $1 billion over the next seven years to purchase about 3,500 electric trucks and electrify more than 60 terminals.

“Integrating Motiv’s trucks into our operations is a step forward in our journey toward reaching 60% electrification of our last-mile delivery vehicles by 2030, and ultimately achieving net-zero emissions by 2050,” said Chris Henry, Director, National Fleet at Purolator.
