Vicinity Motor Corp. Receives Order for 50 VMC 1200 EV Trucks from Skydome Auto and Truck Centre
Skydome to Act as Vicinity’s Exclusive Dealer in Brampton, Ontario
Vicinity Motor Corp. (NASDAQ:VEV) (TSXV:VMC) (FRA:6LGA) (“Vicinity” or the “Company”), a North American supplier of commercial electric vehicles, today announced that it has signed a sales and marketing agreement with Skydome Auto and Truck Centre Inc. (“Skydome”), an automotive dealer and service center in the Greater Toronto Area of Ontario, Canada, including an initial order for 50 VMC 1200 Class 3 electric trucks. Skydome has also been appointed to act as Vicinity’s exclusive dealer in the City of Brampton, a part of the Greater Toronto region in Ontario, Canada.
The Skydome family of companies have over 25 years of professional auto and truck sales and service experience, currently operating from three locations in Brampton. Skydome’s Truck & Fleet and Truck & Coach Centers provide a variety of repair services for fleets, including transit, coaches, trucks, ambulances, school buses and commercial vehicles. The VMC 1200 deliveries are expected to begin with five in the second quarter of 2022.
“We are excited to begin offering the VMC 1200 in the Toronto market alongside our new sales partner, Skydome,” said William Trainer, Founder and CEO of Vicinity Motor Corp. “Skydome has decades of experience serving and maintaining fleets in the region across a wide variety of vehicle types, and we believe the VMC 1200 as well as our expanding line of all-electric vehicles will be of strong interest to their large base of customers.”
“The VMC 1200 continues to attract early attention from dealers and customers seeking a fully electric class 3 truck for ultra-quiet operation in urban environments while aligning with clean fleet goals. In Toronto alone, the city is undertaking a major expansion of its EV charging infrastructure to enable and support accelerated transition of city fleets to electric vehicles, and to further spur adoption of EVs in the greater Toronto region. We believe our ongoing dealer agreement will position us to be the premier providers in this segment,” concluded Trainer.
Daljit Singh Gaidhu, President of Skydome Group, added: “As a trusted one-stop-shop in the Toronto region, we look forward to showcasing our first VMC 1200 vehicles to our customers later this year. We expect the VMC 1200 and the Vicinity brand’s well-known performance, versatility and affordability – combined with their growing EV reputation – will advance sales and success for the VMC 1200 line.”
