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.

Karolinska Development’s portfolio company Modus Therapeutics and Imperial College London to conduct clinical study of sevuparin in severe malaria15.6.2021 11:24:44 CEST | Press release

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN – June 15, 2021. Karolinska Development AB (Nasdaq Stockholm: KDEV) announces today that its portfolio company Modus Therapeutics has entered into a collaboration agreement with Imperial College London to evaluate the effect of its drug candidate sevuparin in patients with severe malaria. Sevuparin is currently being developed in the indication sepsis/septic shock, a condition that bears resemblance to the systemic inflammatory reaction that occurs in connection with severe malaria infection. Malaria causes more than 400,000 deaths per year and the need for new and effective drugs is therefore great. Severe malaria continues to be a medical challenge in several parts of the world. The disease often affects children and the need for effective drugs is great as malaria can induce a systemic inflammatory reaction leading to multi-organ failure, a reaction similar to that seen in sepsis/septic shock. The purpose of the collaboration announced today is to conduct a clinica

Karolinska Developments portföljbolag Modus Therapeutics och Imperial College London planerar klinisk studie av sevuparin mot svår malaria15.6.2021 11:24:44 CEST | Pressemelding

STOCKHOLM, SVERIGE 15 juni 2021. Karolinska Development AB (Nasdaq Stockholm: KDEV) meddelar idag att portföljbolaget Modus Therapeutics och Imperial College London har ingått ett samarbetsavtal i syfte att utvärdera effekten av bolagets läkemedelskandidat sevuparin i patienter med svår malaria. Sevuparin utvecklas sedan tidigare inom indikationen sepsis/septisk chock, ett tillstånd som bär vissa likheter med den systemiska inflammationsreaktion som uppstår i samband med svår malariainfektion. Malaria orsakar fler än 400 000 dödsfall per år och behovet av nya och effektiva läkemedel är därför stort. Svår malaria utgör fortsatt en medicinsk utmaning i flera delar av världen. Sjukdomen drabbar ofta barn och behovet av effektiva läkemedel är stort eftersom malaria kan inducera en systemisk inflammatorisk reaktion som leder till multiorgansvikt, en reaktion som liknar den man ser vid sepsis/septisk chock. Syftet med det samarbete som annonseras idag är att genomföra en klinisk studie för a
