The Lion Electric Company announced a workforce reduction aimed at rationalizing its cost structure and improving its ability to reach its profitability objectives.

Headquartered in Quebec, Lion is a North American leader in electric transportation and designs, builds and assembles many of its vehicles’ components, including chassis, battery packs, truck cabins and bus bodies.

The reduction affects 150 employees (approximately 10% of Lion’s total headcount) in production overhead, manufacturing, product development and administrative functions, both in Canada and the United States.

“Although this was a very difficult decision and we are sad to part ways with valued employees, this initiative was the right thing to do for the business at this point in time,” said Marc Bedard, CEO-Founder of Lion. “I am confident that the workforce remaining in place is more than capable to continue growing Lion’s leadership,” he added.
