RIZON, a commercial electric truck brand developed and manufactured by Daimler Truck, has entered the Canadian market. With orders starting this June, the company offers four models of vehicles, in a dozen configurations.

The company says the state-of-the-art electric Class 4 and 5 electric vehicles represent a significant milestone in its commitment to sustainability and revolutionizing the transportation landscape in North America.

The vehicles are available with either two or three of the company’s 41 battery packs, providing 82 or 124 kWh of power to deliver estimated ranges of up to 257 km and a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of up to 17,995 lb.

Truck chassis in the lineup are suitable for a variety of body configurations and applications, from vans to flatbeds and even dump trucks. They can also be equipped with an ePTO unit to provide power for onboard equipment. On the safety side, the vehicles incorporate advanced passive and active safety systems, including active brake assist with moving pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, active side assist, electronic stability control and an anti-lock braking system.

The trucks are capable of being charged by two types of battery charging systems: DC Fast Charging (via CCS1 connector), and less expensive Level 2 AC Charging (via J1772 connector).

“As pioneers in sustainable transport solutions, Daimler Truck is thrilled to introduce RIZON to the Canadian market,” said Alexander Voets, general manager at Velocity EV. “Its innovative design, reliable performance, and backing of leading commercial vehicle dealers; RIZON is a game-changer for businesses seeking to reduce their environmental impact and embrace a cleaner, more sustainable future.”
