Lion Electric Company announced several key partnerships
with truck upfitters to provide refrigerated,
dry freight and aluminum stake body options for its
Lion6 zero-emission truck. The new partnerships include
equipment upfit options from Morgan Truck
Body, Thermo King, Knapheide and CM Truck Beds.
Several Lion6 BEVs are on display at the show representing
these partnerships. They include a refrigerated
concept in partnership with Morgan Truck Body
and Thermo King, an 18-foot platform body in partnership
with Knapheide, and a 26-foot (7.9-m) aluminum
SEA revealed its own prototype chassis, which is powered by its SEA-Drive
propulsion system comprised of a 138-kWh battery powering an AC motor with a
peak output of 335 hp and 1,845 lb-ft (2013 Nm).
cooling a couple of key components such as the motor, DC/DC converter
and the onboard charger when the vehicle is plugged in, we've
got a much smaller, lighter and lower-cost radiator. "
SEA also said the system's proprietary management software is
designed to optimize power distribution to the various subsystems of
the vehicles, with this energy conservation backed up by passive and
active stages of regenerative braking, which charge the mediumvoltage
batteries while the vehicle slows. SEA also intends to offer
Class 3, 4 and 5 BEV step-vans by the end of the decade.

" The wide variety of upfit components we are debuting
at this year's Work Truck Week is proof that
electrification has arrived for a broad range of truck
fleet customers, " said Brian Piern, chief commercial
officer of Lion Electric. " We are pleased to be working
in close collaboration with four industry leaders as we
continue to move toward a zero-emission future in
trucking and look forward to continuing to introduce
new applications to our highly flexible Class 5 to Class
8 chassis vehicles. "
The Lion6 is a Class 6 BEV with a range of 200 miles
(322 km). The company claims to have 550 heavyduty
BEVs on the road, which have covered more than
9 million miles (14.5 million km) to date. The Lion6 also
features the company's proprietary battery thermalmanagement
system (BTMS), which keeps the battery
pack in an ideal operating range, therefore minimizing
the effects of extreme hot or cold temperatures on the
vehicle's range.
