Major investment for electric vehicles manufacturer Lion
Quebec and Ottawa are investing nearly $ 100 million in Saint-Jérôme in the development of a battery pack assembly plant for Quebec-based heavy-electric vehicle manufacturer Lion Electric.
The announcement of this joint investment in equal shares between the federal government and Quebec was confirmed by Prime Ministers Justin Trudeau and François Legault along with the Federal Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry, François-Philippe Champagne and the Minister of the Economy, Pierre Fitzgibbon.
This highly automated plant, valued at $ 185 million, is slated to open in 2023. It will allow the manufacturer of electric trucks and buses to create 135 jobs and, by the same token, become the largest producer of fully electric heavy-duty vehicles in the country.
