Vision Industries Corp., producers of the zero emission plug-in electric/hydrogen fuel cell Tyrano™ truck, announced this morning that it has entered into a distribution agreement with Los Angeles Freightliner and Velocity Vehicle Group. Los Angeles Freightliner has agreed to be an authorized dealer of the Tyrano™ truck within the territory described as Southern California, and Los Angeles Freightliner will administer all product warranties, services and repairs programs.
Brad Fauvre, President of Los Angeles Freightliner stated, “We would like to commend Vision on its hydrogen hybrid truck and their commitment to the use of the cleanest available alternative fuel trucks to provide port drayage services. We understand the need for cleaner trucks to improve air quality and support any and all initiatives that help to achieve that goal, particularly in Southern California, which has some of the worst air quality in the nation. We look forward to providing Vision’s zero emission trucks to the Southern California market.”
Martin Schuermann, President & CEO of Vision commented, “The LA Freightliner team has significant experience in the deployment of new heavy-duty OEM alternative fuel trucks. The team was responsible for the nation’s largest single deployment of natural gas trucks with the implementation of the California Cartage LNG truck project in the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach.”
He continued, “Given the exemplary record of success in implementing similar projects, as well as the direct approach of working with large fleet operators that are ready to immediately purchase and deploy zero emission plug-in electric/hydrogen fuel cell powered trucks in their operations, LA Freightliner and Vision will make an extremely strong team in competing for thousands of potential alternative fuel truck orders in the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach.”
