Louisseize and Trudel presented data from the Plug-In Fleet study, conducted by the Saint-Jérôme, Que.-based Innovative Vehicle Institute (IVI). It has revealed that a quarter of the Quebec fleet’s trucks included in the study are suitable to be electrified overnight, and another quarter is electrifiable through operational adjustments.

The study highlighted that electric trucks are up to the challenge of Canadian winters, showing an average 30% drop in range during winter, a promising sign for year-round reliability.
