Effenco: Revolutionizing the electrification of heavy-duty trucks

 Montreal, February 8, 2021 – Développement Effenco Inc. (“Effenco”), a company specializing in the design of electric propulsion systems for heavy-duty vocational vehicles, announces the launch of the first 100% electric solution offered at the same purchase price as diesel alternatives.

While the discovery of new electrical technologies has accelerated in recent years in the transportation electrification field, no one has yet been able to develop a solution that, from the start, would not be more expensive than currently available products. From now on, Effenco’s 100% electric solution will overcome the main obstacle to electrification: price.

Based on 15 years of expertise, Effenco developed a flexible and adaptable 100% electric solution. Using ultracapacitors and high intensity wireless charging stations positioned with the company’s artificial intelligence algorithms, Effenco’s solution optimizes on-board energy without sacrificing vehicle vocation and performance.

With its data-centric approach, algorithms and cutting-edge technology, the company will help municipalities and businesses significantly reduce their GHG emissions. Effenco’s 100% electric solution will achieve zero emissions while minimizing financial impacts. This fully adaptable system is easily installed on existing fleets of heavy-duty vocational trucks (collection trucks, dump trucks, terminal tractors, etc.) or on new truck fleets without sacrificing loading capacity and without impacting daily operations.

Today, the message is clear: Effenco is unequivocally a key partner in electrification.


” With over fifteen years in the sector, our team has been able to develop innovative solutions that will make a real difference to fight climate change. By making it possible to have a 100% electric fleet for the same price as a traditional diesel fleet, our team has overcome the biggest obstacle to electrification. ”
– David Arsenault, Co-founder and President, Effenco
