Havelaar Canada unveils all-electric pickup truck, the Bison


TORONTO, May 30, 2017 /CNW/ - Havelaar Canada is unveiling a good news story for Ontario's auto manufacturing sector and for prospective pickup truck owners. The first-of-its-kind all-electric pickup truck designed and tested in Canada, Havelaar's Bison offers both the practicality of a truck and a commitment to a better environment. It is a pickup truck built for tough Canadian weather conditions and challenging terrain.

ADVANCED AWD

The zero-emissions Bison E-PickupTM is AWD with advanced electronic management of the vehicle dynamics.

RUGGED AND SAFE

The Bison features carbon fibre reinforced steel space frame, with class-leading torsional stiffness for enhanced durability and handling. Its rugged off-road capabilities allow for 54% hill start and 21% hill climb at full load.

NEXTGEN WORK AND WEEKEND

Underpinning the Bison is an advanced dual-motor, fully-electric powertrain driving the four corners. Our E-Pickuptm concept utilizes an advanced telemetry and innovative packaging. The Bison is a sophisticated #nextgen pickup truck with instant connectivity, touch screen display and driver assistive technology calibrated to meet both the day-to-day work demands and active lifestyle needs of adventurers.

PROVOCATIVE DESIGN

The Bison speaks a bold design language, punctuated with angular cladding and wedge profiles in an evolutionary leap forward from traditional pickups. With short overhangs and tires pushed to the corners, the stance conveys stability and confidence allowing for aggressive approach and departure angles. 

INNOVATION PARTNERSHIP

Havelaar is committed to innovation as well as to its social and environmental responsibilities. Tony Han, CEO of Havelaar Canada, led the launch in 2016 of the UofT Havelaar Electric Vehicle Research Centre (UTHEV) together with UTHEV Director Professor Olivier Trescases and Associate Director, Professor Peter Lehn of the U of T Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The cross-disciplinary partnership focuses on transformative powertrain, energy management and autonomous driving technologies to increase electric vehicle efficiency, safety, comfort, and lifetime, and reduce system costs.

Havelaar is launching the Bison at the EMC show in Markham, Ontario on May 30 at 10:30.
