Cities around the world are engaged in the fight against climate change and GHG reduction. For example, Montreal is considering replacing 250 end-of-life vehicles with 100% electric vehicles. These environmental measures undeniably drive manufacturers to rethink the manufacturing of their vehicles so that they are emission-free and meet new standards.
This is the case of Exprolink-Madvac, a company located in Longueuil that manufactures and sells the Madvac line of sweepers and vacuum. Indeed, the city of Montreal, which was already using diesel litter vacuum (Madvac LR50), informed the company of its interest in electrifying its fleet of vehicles. This is how the project to test 100% electric motorized vacuum litter collectors started.
