At the end of July, Lion, the Canadian manufacturer of electric school buses and trucks, inaugurated its new 900,000 sq. ft. plant in the Chicago suburb of Joliet, the largest of its kind in North America. The plant will have the initial capacity to produce some 2,500 electric school buses per year by 2023, while at full steam, it will be able to produce some 20,000 vehicles, including medium and heavy-duty trucks. The company estimates that it will employ up to 1,200 skilled workers.

In fact, the plant has been in initial operation for a few months now, and guests were given a sneak preview of the prototype D-type electric school bus (advanced cockpit) due to debut later this year.
