Lion: a leading OEM of electric transportation.

Lion was founded in 2008 with the intention of revolutionizing the school bus industry. Since then, we've expanded our vision to create, design and manufacture all-electric school buses, transit/shuttle buses, and class 5 to class 8 commercial trucks. Given the current climate challenges, we believe the transition to all-electric vehicles will lead to major improvements in our society, environment and overall quality of life.

One of Lion's many objectives is to help educate school districts, fleet operators, agencies, and others about the capabilities of electric vehicles and the current funding opportunities. We have created a curriculum for clean air communities to share our electric vehicle knowledge well beyond our customer circle setting the industry standards for training and service.
