Lion Electric gets the largest order so far for electric school buses in North America

By Sustainable Bus, January 21, 2021

Lion Electric has just achieved the largest order so far for 100% electric school buses from a North American operator. The operator Autobus Séguin, based in Quebec, in fact has ordered 60 units of LionC buses. The operator’s goal is to electrify the entire fleet of more than 310 school buses by 2030.

In early 2019, Keolis Canada ordered 12 electric school buses Type C from Lion Electric. It was released that, according to a survey, 92% of Quebeckers want school boards and schools to increase their use of electric buses.

(...)“We are happy to continue the pioneering tradition established at Autobus Séguin by participating in this current wind of change, and by making this important shift towards the electrification of school transportation. Lion Electric, which will assist us in the transition and integration of these new buses, is an ideal partner for the success of this project. Ultimately, our ambition is to electrify our entire fleet of more than 310 school buses by 2030,” said Stéphane Boisvert, President at Autobus Groupe Séguin.
