The Canadian government has committed to achieving net-zero emissions by 2050 and has established an incentive program to encourage fleets to electrify. Companies and municipalities are now exploring sustainable fleet options to address environmental concerns and operational efficiency. Rizon trucks will qualify for the Canadian government’s “Incentives for Medium- and Heavy-duty-Zero-Emission Vehicles” (iMHZEV) program, which has been effective since 2022.

Rizon will offer four model variants for Canadian customers, the e16L, e16M, e18L, and the e18M, with a versatile mix of configurations and options suitable for each customer’s unique requirements, ranging from 7,25 to 8,55 tons in gross vehicle weight (GVW).
