Hexagon Purus enters partnership with Velocity Vehicle Group – supplying zero emission medium duty commercial vehicles - based on the Freightliner M2 chassis – in California

Share

Hexagon Purus has entered a partnership with Velocity Vehicle Group (VVG), a leading group of commercial vehicle dealers in the US, to deliver battery packs and powertrain integration for medium-duty battery electric trucks in California based on Freightliner’s class 6 M2 platform.

Velocity Vehicle Group has taken an active leadership role in offering clean vehicles to its customers across its product range and locations, and the partnership with Hexagon Purus is an important part of this transition.

Hexagon Purus will deliver turn-key solutions that will convert up to 100 model year 2021 Freightliner M2 medium-duty trucks to Hexagon Purus eM2 emission-free medium duty electrical vehicle trucks. The design will be built upon the platform from Daimler Trucks North America’s successful Innovation Fleet of battery electric medium- and heavy-duty vehicles. All Innovation Fleet trucks operate using Hexagon Purus’ battery electric solutions and technology. The new zero-emission Hexagon Purus eM2 class 6 trucks will typically operate as package delivery or utility trucks.

Deliveries of the new zero-emission Hexagon Purus eM2s in 2021 will be mainly to customers operating in California. In 2022, deliveries of trucks operating in other states in the US are also expected.

“We are committed to providing leading-edge clean vehicles to our customer base, and have invested heavily in the infrastructure support, EV maintenance training and product knowledge required to make this happen”, say Brad Fauvre and Conan Barker, Co-Presidents of VVG. “We are excited to offer the Hexagon Purus eM2 product in cooperation with Hexagon which will allow our customers in California to achieve zero-emissions this year, with a proven platform that includes our support”.

“We are honored to enter this partnership with Velocity Vehicle Group. With a shared commitment to clean transportation solutions, we are proud to see that our offering enables the transition to zero-emission vehicles,” says Todd Sloan, EVP Systems, Hexagon Purus.

About the market

With California leading the way, there is a strong push to reduce carbon emissions in the commercial vehicle market in the US. Government incentives and new regulations such as those implemented by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) are playing a significant role in driving this segment forward, resulting in major fleet owners committing to zero-emission solutions.

Timing

The first deliveries are expected to take place in Q4 2021.
