Canada's first all-electric pickup truck 'built tough'

Havelaar Canada is unveiling the first all-electric pickup truck, the Bison.

The world premiere is happening in Markham, ON.

The Bison claims to be tough enough to handle Canada's challenging weather and equally harsh terrain.

The Bison is a zero-emissions, AWD, E-Pickup with a carbon fibre reinforced steel space frame.

On one charge, the Bison can travel 300 kilometres.

The Havelaar Group has also partnered with the University of Toronto for research and development to create the U of T Havelarr Electric Vehicle Research Centre.

Research will focus on improving the powertrain, autonomous driving and energy management technology.

The Havelaar Group has operations in Canada, the Netherlands and China.

It's being shown at the EV/VE` Conference and Trade Show, at the Hilton in Markham, ON. from May 29 to June 1.

The annual show is put on by Electric Mobility Canada and highlights the latest inventions with electric vehicles.

There is currently no information available on the price of the Bison.

What would you pay for the Bison?

Could you see employers using the Bison for jobs in Northern B.C. and Northern Alberta?
