announced this week that it will deliver one of their Ford
E-450 parallel hybrids
vans to a "major fleet." Which company will get the van is unsaid at this point, but it is a North American company that will use the hybrid for "industry viability validation, testing and demonstration." Should the tests work out, the company will become a "lead customer for Azure's
hybrid technology on the Ford E-450 chassis with a minimum commitment of 10 percent of their fleet replacement purchases per annum," according to Azure's very safely-written press release.
