The Lion Electric Company, a leading manufacturer of all-electric medium- and heavy-duty urban vehicles, unveiled the Lion8 Tractor, an all-electric Class 8 commercial truck, at the Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo, one of the largest conference and trade shows showcasing the most advanced transportation technologies and clean fuels on the market.

The Lion8 Tractor, powered by Lion’s Heavy-Duty battery packs, can travel up to 275 miles and has a battery capacity of up to 630 kWh. It can charge to 80 percent SOC in 1.5 hours, ensuring maximum productivity. Its 6×4 axle configuration with integrated 2-speed eAxles optimizes power distribution and efficiency. The Lion-engineered cab-forward offers optimal driver visibility and maneuverability, making it a new benchmark for electric freight transportation.

The Lion8 Tractor isn’t only strong. It is also intelligent, due to its high-energy-density proprietary 750V battery technology and standard Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) connectivity. Furthermore, technologies like Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and an onboard weighing system improve its safety and operating efficiency.

Lion leads the industry in the development of all-electric medium and heavy-duty trucks, having spent over 15 years on the project. The introduction of the Lion8 Tractor at the ACT Expo demonstrates Lion’s commitment to leading the transition to zero-emission transportation in North America, with the most diverse range of Class 5-8 electric commercial vehicles.
