Q2 2023 Report
Electric vehicle manufacturer Lion Electric this week reported record revenue of $58 million for the second quarter of 2023, up $28.5 million compared to the same period in 2022. The company, which recently celebrated the grand opening of its production facility in Joliet, Ill., indicated that it delivered 199 vehicles during the quarter that ended on June 30.
According to a news release, vehicle deliveries "were negatively impacted by delays in the final approval of a subsidy program which resulted in the deferral to subsequent quarters of the delivery of 50 school buses to one customer despite that such vehicles were ready for delivery and the client being ready to receive them."
The company reported a net loss of $11.8 million in Q2 2023.
Among the company's business updates:

"We are pleased with our performance in the second quarter of 2023, as we continued to see gradual growth in revenue and truck deliveries," said Marc Bedard, Lion's CEO and founder. "As we recently closed a $142 million financing that provides us with the flexibility to execute our growth plans, we will continue to focus our efforts on achieving profitability, which is moving in the right direction, as demonstrated by the positive gross margin we posted this quarter."
