Zero Emissions Plug-in Electric/Hydrogen Fuel Cell Terminal Tractor being Developed

Vision Industries Corp., producers of the zero emission plug-in electric/hydrogen fuel cell hybrid TyranoTM truck announced that Capacity of Texas, Inc. and Vision have joined forces to build a Zero Emissions Terminal Tractor (ZETTTM). The ZETT will be built on Capacity’s PHETTTM platform and powered by the Vision plug-in electric/hydrogen fuel cell technology. The PHETTTM was the worlds 1st Hybrid Terminal Tractor.

Phillip Ford, President of Capacity stated, “The ZETT is the latest evolution of innovative hybrid technology, combining the advantages of hydrogen fuel cell technology to produce Zero Emissions. The ZETT is designed to operate for two full eight hour shifts without refueling which is a tremendous advantage over any battery powered only terminal tractor. With the advanced technology that Vision Industries has developed, the ZETT produces its’ own electricity and never will have to be recharged in the middle of a shift. Fueling of the hydrogen tanks can be accomplished in fifteen minutes. Capacity of Texas is dedicated to environmental stewardship by offering products with the latest technology in green propulsion”.

Martin Schuermann, President & CEO of Vision stated, “Terminal tractors typically operate in industrial settings in close proximity to heavily populated urban areas. This is a new market sector for Vision and we believe that the marketplace will readily embrace a zero emissions terminal tractor that features significant operating cost savings when compared to conventionally powered diesel terminal tractors.”
