The vehicle is being designed in conjunction with the University of Toronto. Havelaar and the school opened the University of Toronto – Havelaar Electric Vehicle Research Centre last year. The centre’s research is aimed at advancing power electronics for EV powertrains, charging infrastructure, and energy storage.

Havelaar Canada hasn’t provided an official production timeline, but 28 year-old company president Tony Han told the CBC recently that the company plans to produce 100 fleet pickup trucks in 2018, with sales to the public expected in 2019.
