Autobus Seguin orders 55 electric school buses from Lion Electric

MONTREAL — Lion Electric Co. says Groupe Autobus Seguin has ordered 55 electric school buses to be delivered by 2025.

The price to be paid for the 45 LionA and 10 LionC model buses was not immediately available.

The new buses will be used on school routes in the Montreal and Laval regions in Quebec.

Lion Electric says the order is conditional on a grant under the Quebec government’s school transportation electrification program and the federal government’s zero emission transit fund.

The order is in addition to 60 LionC buses ordered by Autobus Seguin in January.

Last month, Lion Electric received a conditional order for 1,000 electric school buses from Student Transportation of Canada.
