Roadwarrior Prepares to Serve Electric Trucks

Continuing from their existing emission-reduction solutions, Roadwarrior makes plans to support fully electric trucks with LightningVolt lithium technology.

Ontario, Canada – 11 August 2022 – Roadwarrior Inc., the commercial trucking emissions manufacturer, is actively perfecting their fast-selling lithium APU batteries, LightningVolt, to stay up to date with the ongoing electrification of the trucking industry.

Roadwarrior is a Canadian company part of the DCL Technology Group, the driving force behind the development of LightningVolt. The group developed aftertreatment components (DPFs and systems that use DEF fluid) to reduce emissions and lower operating costs with better and more cost-effective aftermarket solutions. Roadwarrior can now do the same for electric trucks with LightningVolt technology.

According to Western Resource Advocates, this electrification process will reduce the demand for gasoline and increase the demand for electricity, and it has been proven that transitioning to electric vehicles will provide substantial economic, environmental, and public health benefits. As one of Roadwarrior’s missions to decrease trucking emissions, the company cannot miss out on this important step toward the electrification of the transportation industry.

“Roadwarrior was created to support trucks in maintaining efficiency, reducing emissions, and lowering operating costs,” says Jay Daran, Marketing Manager at Roadwarrior Inc. “As the trucking industry moves towards electrification, our company can continue to support the needs of the trucking industry with the help of LightningVolt lithium technology.”

Electric transportation is the next big thing in the trucking industry: from personal cars and commercial fleets of trucks to public transit like buses and trains, more and more means of transportation previously fueled by fossil are now transitioning to being powered by electricity.

As of now, the major battery-powered component in need of aftermarket support in today’s trucks is the battery bank for the electric APU system, intended to help truckers reduce their fuel costs as an idle-reduction technology. LightningVolt extends the run-time of these systems which also helps prolong the engine, emission systems, and other components.

As electric trucks enter the market, LightningVolt will be able to support battery upgrades for longer run time and replacement components to keep trucks on the road.

About Roadwarrior Inc.

With 12 warehouses strategically placed across North America, Roadwarrior Inc. manufactures high-efficiency diesel particulate filters and catalysts for heavy duty trucks, buses and construction equipment.

Roadwarrior Inc. was launched by the DCL Technology Group, whose unrivaled reliability and innovative emission control products are used in the most demanding environments on the planet, including Mining, Construction and Energy Production.

Our mission is emission.


Better Coating, Better Performance.

Roadwarrior is the only manufacturer to use Metalcor® catalyst technology across its entire range of Diesel Oxidation Catalysts (DOCs) and Selective Catalytic Reduction catalysts (SCRs). Metalcor® catalysts feature high activity catalyst coatings fused to thinner, stronger, catalyst substrates to guarantee maximum performance under the harshest conditions.

Metalcor® catalyst coatings are designed and produced in our own labs. We then inspect each unit to ensure you get more fuel efficiency, lower consumption of DEF, and long term performance from your heavy duty engine!


Roadwarrior Has You Covered!

All Roadwarrior emissions parts carry a full value 12 month warranty.

LightningVolt lithium batteries carry a full value 30 month warranty.

To make the process hassle-free, our parts have a metal nameplate with the serial number, so even after 500,000 miles of service, it’s still easy to identify. This avoids the common problem of serial numbers printed on stickers that burn off after the first start-up, making them impossible to return. Our failsafe system allows us to work in your interests, honouring claims for on-road and off-road replacements, and giving you peace of mind.

And since Roadwarrior parts are designed to meet or exceed OEM specifications, you can rest easy knowing our direct fit parts will take the problems out of your aftertreatment without interfering with your OEM warranty.

Next Day Is Nice, Same Day is Better!​

A faulty emissions control system can cost you thousands in wasted man-hours as your heavy equipment sits in the shop awaiting a new part. Whether it’s a truck behind on orders, a bus that can’t take passengers, or heavy machinery delaying construction deadlines, Roadwarrior can get you moving again! 

Roadwarrior has twelve warehouses across the U.S.A. and Canada, which can deliver the most popular aftertreatment parts in 1-2 days. With over 1,000 DPFs, DOCs and SCRs on offer, Roadwarrior offers the largest aftertreatment catalogue.

*LightningVolt lithium batteries ship directly from Roadwarrior in Ontario, to ALL 50 states, including Alaska and Hawaii within 2-4 days.
