TORONTO, Canada – Tim Hortons now has a zero-tailpipe emissions electric transport truck making Tims Runs to restaurants across southwestern Ontario.

The first Volvo VNR Electric Class 8 truck in the Tims fleet is based out of the Tim Hortons distribution centre in Guelph, Ont., and a second Tims electric truck will soon be based out of the Tim Hortons distribution centre in Langley, B.C.

“As part of our Tims For Good sustainability platform we’re always working on developing better solutions for how we serve our millions of guests each and every day,” says Axel Schwan, President of Tim Hortons.

“We’re really excited to now have one of the first electric transport trucks of its kind on the road here in Canada and another coming very soon.

Each electric truck is expected to travel up to 100,000 kilometres per year while producing zero tailpipe emissions and reduce our use of more than 25,000 litres of diesel fuel per vehicle annually.”

Canadians will be able to identify the Tim Hortons electric trucks on the road by the distinctive lightning bolt design and Tims maple leaf logo on the cab of the trucks.
