Grande West Transportation Group Inc., a manufacturer of mid-sized multi-purpose transit vehicles, says the Vicinity Lightning electric vehicle (EV) is now for sale in Canada and the U.S.
The Vicinity Lightning was designed from the ground up to be a cost-effective, user-friendly vehicle. The design will allow it to fit into any standard transit garage with no major infrastructural electrical upgrades. Grande West has partnered with multiple industries to engineer the vehicle. The company’s sales team has started the process of introducing the product to prospective clients in the U.S. and Canada.
