Canadian and US-based clean commercial transportation and technology company, Giga Carbon Neutrality has secured a contract to supply 2520 battery powered EV heavy trucks to Guohua Environmental Energy Industry Development Company, to fulfill orders on behalf of a large Chinese State-owned mining company.

In addition, both parties have also entered into a framework agreement for up to 8000 units of New Energy Vehicles, including battery EV heavy trucks and logistics vehicles for the mining industry.

The first batch of 20 battery electric vehicles is due off the production line in the first half of 2022.

The GCN trucks will be produced in a strategic partnership with Xuzhou Construction Machinery Group and Guohua, who will be supplying the cold weather high performance batteries.

In November 2021, GCN announced its intention to launch a full range of 21 battery-electric and hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles by the end of 2023, which will be configurable to a wide range of commercial use cases. The first vehicles are available to order now for delivery in 2022.

“Coming just a week after the announcement of the contract for 200 hydrogen fuel cell powered trucks, this contract for 2520 battery electric trucks, plus the framework agreement for up to 8000 more, puts us at the forefront of the new energy commercial vehicle sector,” said Marty Wade, CEO at Giga Carbon Neutrality.
