OAK PARK — The hybrid and electric truck powertrain developer Azure Dynamics Corp. (OTC: AZDDF) announced that its Transit Connect Electric van was rated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as the third most fuel-efficient vehicle for 2012.

Said Scott Harrison, CEO of Azure Dynamics: “In addition to fuel and maintenance efficiencies, more and more customers are demanding cleaner, more efficient power for their fleets. Combined with the car-like driving characteristics and reduced operating costs, the Transit Connect Electric is an ideal product for them.”

The Ford Transit Connect Electric utilizes an advanced lithium-ion battery from Johnson Controls to achieve a range of 50 to 80 miles depending on auxiliary usage and drive cycle and is rechargeable using either a 240-volt or standard 120-volt outlet. Commercial vans generally return to a central location at the end of each driving cycle making for easy overnight recharging. Use of the vehicles will also reduce fuel and maintenance costs, as well as reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
