"Orange EV has long anticipated this expansion in Canada, and with the company's proven presence in cold-weather markets such as Minnesota, western New York and already in Ontario, it's a natural move that will benefit North American customers and the environment alike," Bragagnolo says. 

Canada offers $100,000-per-truck discounts through incentives for medium- and heavy-duty zero emission vehicles, intensifying demand for Orange EV vehicles, the company says. 

"Orange EV's mission is to be a leader in the effort to positively impact climate change on a global scale, manufacturing heavy-duty EVs that are a superior financial and operational choice," says Orange EV co-founder and CTO Kurt Neutgens.
