Canada’s Automotive Parts Manufacturers’ Association has decided to build an electric SUV almost entirely from Canadian sources, including the battery, in the new Project Arrow.

Rather than relying on battery cells from the usual (mostly Asian) suppliers, Project Arrow will be powered by cylindrical cells from VoltaXplore. It will also employ technologies from Ontario Tech University and its Automotive Center of Excellence in Oshawa.

In a recent interview, APMA chief technical officer, Fraser Dunn, stated that Project Arrow is on course, with a reveal planned at the CES show in Las Vegas in January, 2023.
