Purolator is testing the Kargo
Québec manufacturer Kargo has recently unveiled a low speed electric vehicle (LSEV) completely made of aluminum and one of its prototypes is actually being tested in Montreal by Purolator. Built in Alma, this compact vehicle represents a big advantage to Purolator making deliveries easier on busy streets where parking is difficult.
Kargo’s LSEV features a modular rear clip that can be adapted to the needs of the customer. Other than Purolator, the mini-truck has caught the attention of many municipalities including Alma and Saint-Henri-de-Taillon. Even Montreal has taken in two units for a project within the Plateau-Mont-Royal borough. Park Canada and Quebec’s SEPAQ also chose the Kargo LSEV. This little electric vehicle can be plugged into a regular electric outlet. It has a range of 75 kilometers depending on the site and the weather. Finally, note that being a totally electric vehicle , it is eligible to a $5000 grant by the Quebec government.
