Order Update: Your BrightDrop EV is on the Way

BrightDrop is shipping its first Canadian-built vehicles, announcing 2023 BrightDrop Zevo 600s are sold out, and adding Ryder as a customer.

BrightDrop is heading into spring with a few reasons to celebrate. For starters, we have started shipping the first 500+ BrightDrop Zevo 600s built in Q1 at CAMI Assembly, our large-scale manufacturing facility in Ontario, Canada that just opened three months ago. Next up, demand for our commercial EVs is at an all-time high, with our model year 2023 Zevo 600 already sold out. And finally, to add to the momentum, our newest customer Ryder plans to add 4,000 BrightDrop EVs to their rental and lease fleet through 2025 (more here). 

In just two years, we’ve secured more than 30 commercial customers across industries like retail, rental, parcel delivery and service-based utilities. This includes new customers like American Tire Distributors, WasteNot Compost and Rexel USA, in addition to our already announced customers FedEx, Walmart, Hertz, DHL Express and Purolator. Apparently, we aren’t the only ones interested in our purpose-built electric van. 

After a record-setting commercialization and the fastest-ever plant conversion for GM, we’re well on our way to accelerating production of our electric delivery vans and reaching our 50,000-unit annual volume capacity by 2025.

We did all this while focusing on what matters most to our customers: segment-leading safety features, quality and reliability. We’ve been able to do new things in the auto industry, largely because of our unique structure as a startup within an industry leader. This structure allows us to focus on cutting-edge innovation and agility, while also tapping into the platform assets, scale, and the manufacturing might of GM. It’s a powerful combination. 

BrightDrop is taking reservations for model year 2024 vehicles today with deliveries expected to begin by mid-year 2023.

“Our customers have ambitious sustainability goals and they’re under extreme pressure to deliver on them. The quicker we can electrify commercial fleets, the quicker we'll help combat climate change. We’re laser-focused on scaling production to deliver for our customers, and the planet.” – Steve Hornyak, chief commercial officer, BrightDrop.
