Marc Bedard

CEO & Founder, The Lion Electric Co.

Sometimes the word “revolutionary” is overused. But not here – and not now. Marc and his team are in fact revolutionizing the world of transportation through the design and manufacturing of all-electric heavy-duty vehicles. Lion Electric released the first zero-emission school bus in North America in 2016, representing an emissions reduction of 23 tonnes annually over traditional school buses and has since moved on to fully electric minibuses and heavy-duty class 5 to 8 trucks that each save up to 100 tonnes of annual emissions. So far they’ve sold over 300 vehicles across North America which have driven over 10 million km, and recently announced the upcoming construction of a new battery plant in Quebec.
