Canadian coffee and fast-food chain Tim Hortons has introduced its first zero-tailpipe emissions electric transport truck.
The Volvo VNR Electric Class 8 truck operates from the Tim Hortons distribution centre in Guelph, Ontario, with a second electric truck soon to be stationed in Langley, British Columbia.
This initiative aligns with Tim Hortons’ sustainability platform, “Tims For Good.” Each electric truck is expected to cover up to 100,000 kilometers annually, emitting zero tailpipe emissions and reducing diesel fuel consumption by over 25,000 liters per vehicle annually.
The distinctive lightning bolt design and Tims maple leaf logo will identify these eco-friendly trucks on Canadian roads.
