The Proposed Project 

The company Lion Electric is proposing to build an industrial complex that will house an Innovation Centre dedicated to the design of new electric vehicles, as well as a battery pack assembly plant to supply its vehicle assembly plants. The future Lion industrial complex is expected to be built on the newly created lot numbered 6 243 516 ptie, located on the western part of the Mirabel International Aerocity site, which has an area of approximately 157,307 m2.  

The project includes the construction of the following two buildings:  

  • The Innovation Centre will be a specialized industrial building with a footprint of approximately 14,704 m2. The exterior portion will include five parking areas for employees and visitors, with a total capacity of approximately 695 spaces.  
  • The battery assembly plant will be a conventional industrial building with an area of approximately 14,539 m2. The exterior portion will include two employee/visitor parking areas with a total capacity of approximately 350 spaces. 

The new manufacturing and innovation centre will be a key link in the specialized supply chain required for the electrification of transport, helping to create a zero-emissions technology ecosystem and fostering a world-class talent pipeline. The project will create 135 high-quality direct jobs over the next two years and up to 250 jobs in the longer term.  

Lion plans to implement sustainable development practices during the construction of the plant and will continue its efforts to promote the use of electric vehicles among its employees and visitors by offering free, efficient charging infrastructure on site.
