Purolator Courier orders 115 hybrid vehicles
Toronto, Ontario – Azure Dynamics Corporation, a developer of hybrid electric powertrains for commercial vehicles, has announced that Purolator Courier, Canada’s largest courier company, has ordered 115 new hybrid electric vehicles.
In September 2003, the two companies signed a supply agreement for the replacement of up to 2,000 conventional-powered vehicles with Azure-powered hybrid electric vehicle technology. The new order represents the first commercial production vehicles produced by Azure under the agreement and follows extensive pre-production testing by both companies. Deliveries will begin in 2006.
