The Mack Laval plant in Dorval, Quebec, is the first in Canada to be designated as a Mack Trucks certified electric vehicle (EV) dealer. This achievement enables Mack Laval in Dorval to service and support the Mack LR Electric refuse truck, Mack’s first fully electric Class 8 vehicle.
“Mack commends Mack Laval for its efforts to become certified as an EV Dealer and for extending coverage of LR Electric customers to Canada,” says Jonathan Randall, Mack Trucks’ senior vice president of sales and commercial operations. “This achievement expands Mack’s leadership in electromobility and further exemplifies the commitment Mack and its dealers have to zero tailpipe emissions.”
Mack’s Lehigh Valley Operations factory in Macungie, Pa., where all Class 8 Mack vehicles for North America and export are manufactured, commenced production of the LR Electric in December 2021.
Depending on the customer’s specific requirements, the Mack LR Electric can be equipped with equipment bodies from a variety of suppliers. The LR Electric has the same driver/passenger side driving combinations, seating options, and door options as the diesel-powered Mack LR model.
