Azure Dynamics/Ford Transit Connect BEV – 80 miles AER and 75 mph top speed… Perfect for short distance delivery.
Azure Dynamics said that an initial allotment of ten all-electric Ford Transit Connect vans will be produced late this year and will be exclusively available to Azure's lead customers. Azure is the world's leading producer of hybrid electric and electric vehicles for the commercial vehicle industry and is the sole upfitter of the electric version of the Ford Transit Connect, the 2010 "North American Truck of the Year."
"Our lead customers understand the economic and environmental value proposition of the Ford Transit Connect Electric and now we're working with them to establish commitments for 2011," said Scott T. Harrison, Azure CEO. "This program makes a Transit Connect Electric available to lead customers by year-end, provided that the customer commits to a follow-up order of ten or more units in 2011."
Harrison said that Azure Dynamics recognized that there would be heavy initial demand for the Transit Connect Electric and developed its lead customer strategy for the vehicle last fall. "This is a great product that a lot of companies are going to want for their fleets," Harrison said. "Azure will announce additional lead customer sales of the Transit Connect Electric as they are finalized."
