Azure Dynamics Received a 200 Electric Truck Order
This truck model was launched in the summer of 2008. The new 200 hybrid electric trucks will join another 205 hybrid electric trucks that Purolator has in its fleet. The order will be delivered in 2010.
"This order represents the culmination of our Balance(TM) Hybrid Electric efforts over the past several years," said Scott Harrison, Azure Dynamics Chief Executive Officer. "More importantly, the order represents a catapult into 2010 and beyond."
"Our product IS delivering on its promises and becoming the preferred hybrid electric technology solution for hard working, urban delivery truck and shuttle bus applications. As a result, our volume is up, costs are down and we're engaging new and repeat customers who increasingly understand our value proposition."
"Purolator is a responsible corporation that protects and preserves the environment by reducing the impact of its operations and services," said Serge Viola, Director, National Fleet and Ground Line Haul for Purolator. "Our new order of Azure's hybrid electric trucks reflects our continued confidence in the performance of their vehicles. Meanwhile, the technology helps us by substantially reducing tailpipe emissions, reducing operating costs and improving fuel economy and up time."
