HELLO, TORONTO! BRIGHTDROP OPENS FIRST CANADIAN DEALERSHIP
BrightDrop is calling the Toronto area home to its first international dealership, as demand grows for our electric delivery vans. Joining our first location near Los Angeles, we are excited to welcome BrightDrop Greater Toronto Area to our dealer roster, meeting our commercial fleet customers right where they operate.
Toronto is the largest auto market and third largest EV market in Canada – a country committed to expanding the use of electric vehicles by proposing one-fifth of all vehicle purchases be electric by 2026. Following the recent opening of our global EV manufacturing home in Ontario – the country’s first full-scale EV plant – BrightDrop Greater Toronto Area marks a critical step in our international expansion: we are now open for business in Canada.
BrightDrop was born on the idea that we would offer fleet customers real-world solutions for their sustainable delivery needs. Our dealers are a key part of that by providing order, upfit and maintenance support for their BrightDrop Zevo electric delivery vans. With our dealers located in greater Toronto and Los Angeles – some of the most EV-rich markets – it’s easier for commercial customers to make the switch to electric and integrate our vehicles into their new or existing operations.
Located in Vaughan, Ontario, BrightDrop Greater Toronto Area is part of the Roy Foss Automotive Group, a three-generation family business that also operates Canada's largest Cadillac dealership. Founded by Roy Foss and now operated by his daughter Karen Foss and her son James Ricci, they have decades of experience supporting the unique needs of successful fleet operators. Always at the forefront of innovation, the Roy Foss Automotive Group is excited to help fleet operators realize the environmental and economic benefits of transitioning to all-electric BrightDrop vehicles.
"Our fleet and commercial expertise, built over six decades in the Toronto area, solidly positions us to hit the ground running with BrightDrop. Working with this innovative brand will help us deliver what our customers need and accelerate EV adoption in Canada," said Karen Foss, BrightDrop Greater Toronto Area.
