Lion Electric Hosts Federal and State Officials, Key Stakeholders at its Upcoming Illinois Manufacturing Facility

Lion is on track to begin manufacturing 100% electric vehicles in Joliet in the second half of 2022, in what will be the largest dedicated medium and heavyduty electric vehicle manufacturing plant in the country with a production capacity of up to 20,000 vehicles per year. Lion anticipates that it will add over 1,400 new jobs to the Joliet region over the next four years. 

❝ This is a particular moment of pride to bring American jobs to the center of the country – North America’s largest inland port here in Joliet.

“It was great to see the progress Lion Electric has made on their brand-new electric vehicle manufacturing facility. I’m proud that companies like Lion Electric are choosing to invest in Illinois, positioning our region to lead the rapidly growing electric vehicle industry,” said Congressman Bill Foster.

“Lion Electric is demonstrating how the Bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act can make an impact here in northern Illinois by promoting clean energy infrastructure, supporting American manufacturing, and creating good-paying jobs,” said Congresswoman Lauren Underwood.
