Canadian grocery chain Loblaw Cos has placed an order for 25 of Tesla Inc’s new electric heavy-duty trucks, a Loblaw spokeswoman said in a statement sent by email.

Tesla unveiled the trucks, expected to begin production in 2019, on Thursday.

The order furthers Loblaw’s goal of having a fully electric corporate fleet by 2030, the spokeswoman, Catherine Thomas, said. She did not disclose the cost of the trucks.
