Walmart Canada plans to run entire fleet on alternative power by 2028

The Canadian arm of Walmart Inc. on Sept. 6 said it expects its entire fleet to run on alternative power by 2028, with 20% of its fleet converted to electric by 2022.

To meet the goal, the Toronto-based retailer plans to order 30 Tesla Inc. 18-wheeler semitrucks, in addition to the 10 Tesla trucks it ordered in November 2017.

Walmart Canada said the first 20 Tesla Semis will augment its fleet base in Mississauga, Ontario, while the remaining half will be assigned to its recently announced sustainable fulfillment center in Surrey, British Columbia. The Surrey facility, which will open in 2022, will be the first such Walmart facility worldwide to feature an all-electric fleet base.

The company says the new Tesla Semis will allow them to reduce carbon footprint while prioritizing driver safety. The new trucks will be equipped with automated driver safety systems and a range of 500 miles.
