Orange EV expands zero-emission truck sales in Canada

February 10, 2023 | By Anthony Capkun

February 10, 2023 – Orange EV—a heavy-duty electric truck manufacturer—has expanded into the Canadian market.

“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,” said Roberto Bragagnolo, country general manager.

Yard trucks are used to move trailers and containers at distribution centres, manufacturing plants, warehouses, rail intermodal sites, ports, and other such facilities. According to Orange, its solution of trucks and chargers offers a reliable and cost-effective solution to traditional diesel units, often achieving payback “in less than three years in heavy-use operations, even without incentives”.

The company’s Canadian division, Toronto-based OEV Canada Inc., recently became operational. In addition to providing vehicles for purchase, it will provide in-country service and parts support.


“Canadian fleets have been telling us they want to experience the Orange EV difference and, with $100,000-per-truck discounts through Canada’s incentives for Medium-and Heavy-Duty Zero Emission Vehicles (iMHZEV) program now available, demand has rapidly intensified,” said Kurt Neutgens, Orange EV co-founder and CTO.
