As part of the Action Centre’s Electric Vehicles for Municipalities (EVM) Program, the City of Cold Lake purchased a new Hyundai Ioniq 5 and an electric John Deere Gator TE. The Ioniq 5 will be used as a Community Peace Officer vehicle and the John Deere Gator will be used as by the Parks Department.

This project was funded by the Government of Alberta.


As more and more municipalities are integrating EVs into their fleets, the City took the EVM program as opportunity to do so as well. The City is looking forward to testing the EVs throughout the year, and learning how they perform in the cold weather.


By switching to electric vehicles, the city will be eliminating any operational emissions, leading to a reduction in environmental impact, as well as significantly lower fuel and maintenance costs. This is a great step forward by the City in promoting sustainability and environmental stewardship.

“We are thankful for the opportunity to test this technology and learn how it will work in our climate and how it can be integrated in our fleet,” Mayor Craig Copeland said. “We’ve seen how other communities have used electric vehicles and we’ve heard many opinions, but it’s time for our organization to see EVs in action and learn first-hand how they perform here.”
