VICTORIA, B.C. – Canadians now have access to battery-electric trucks from Build Your Dreams (BYD) Canada, with Transport Canada confirming they comply with Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Regulations and Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.
BYD trucks can be imported for applications including municipal service, refuse and recycling fleets, and courier and delivery operations, the company has announced. Its buses have been available since April 2014, including units now on the road for St. Albert Transit.
“This is wonderful news and something that our compliance team has been working hard to achieve,” said BYD Canada vice-president Ted Dowling.
