Vision Electric Truck
SAN PEDRO, Calif. — January 15, 2009 — Expanding its commitment to
bringing cutting-edge, zero-emission solutions to port operations, the Port
of Los Angeles is entering into negotiations with Los Angeles-based Vision
Industries for the purchase and evaluation of Visions hydrogen fuel cell
hybrid-electric trucks. The heavy-duty big-rigs will be tested to evaluate
their suitability for short and medium distance cargo-hauling (or drayage)
operations, and other similar applications.
Vision Industries has been marketing its Class 8 zero-emission hydrogen
fuel cell hybrid-electric truck for more than a year and will now work with
the Port of Los Angeles to further evaluate its performance in the rigorous
port trucking environment. The Vision trucks are powered by a combination
of a hydrogen fuel cell and lithium batteries and have a potential range of
up to 400 miles.
Los Angeles has been the worldwide leader in reductions in port emissions
with initiatives like our highly successful Clean Air Action Plan and Clean
Truck Program, said Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. Our commitment
to working with companies that develop zero-emission trucks is another
important strategy in our plan to grow Los Angeles green by being a
catalyst in testing and bringing to market the most promising emission
The Ports partnership with Vision Industries reflects our unwavering
commitment to pursuing sustainable clean air solutions for the long-term,
said Port Executive Director Geraldine Knatz, Ph.D. Our success with the
Clean Truck Program has motivated us to continue to be at the cutting edge
of zero-emission transportation solutions that significantly reduce
greenhouse gas emissions.
We are very pleased to work with the Port of Los Angeles to demonstrate the
viability of our zero emission, hybrid electric/hydrogen fuel cell truck,
said Martin Schuermann, President and Chief Executive Officer of Vision
Industries. "These vehicles are 30 percent to 40 percent less expensive to
operate than diesel trucks. We expect a strong market demand once these
trucks are in the hands of California medium and heavy duty equipment
The Ports Clean Truck Program, which began in October 2008, has removed
thousands of polluting trucks from the Port and delivered at least an 80
percent reduction in air emissions while maintaining an efficient drayage
Looking forward, the Port of Los Angeles believes that zero emission
vehicles will be necessary in coming years in order to contribute to
achieving the goals for the transportation and port sectors under
Californias AB32 greenhouse gas reduction legislation and the Citys GreenLA
initiative. This has led the Port to begin planning for a transition to
zero emission vehicles over the next decade.
The Vision Industries trucks will be put through a series of on-road and
laboratory tests to demonstrate its usefulness in a variety of drayage duty
cycles, including different loads, road conditions and travel distances.
Local drayage trucking companies are expected to assist with the
demonstration over the next 12 to 18 months, and the University of
California at Riversides College of Engineering Center for Environmental
Research and Technology (CE-CERT) laboratories will help guide the data
collection and analysis.
CE-CERTs partnership with the Port of Los Angeles on this project is
expected to help demonstrate the utility of zero emission vehicles in a
variety of medium and heavy-duty vehicle applications that extend beyond
the port setting. The Port of Los Angeles will be submitting a proposal for
funding from the California Energy Commission to help support this project.
The California Energy Commission has established an Alternative and
Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program to develop and deploy
advanced transportation technologies to help attain the states climate
The Port of Los Angeles is Americas premier port and has a strong
commitment to developing innovative strategic and sustainable operations
that benefit the economy as well as the quality of life for the region and
the nation it serves. As the leading seaport in North America in terms of
shipping container volume and cargo value, the Port generates 919,000
regional jobs and $39.1 billion in annual wages and tax revenues. A
proprietary department of the City of Los Angeles, the Port is
self-supporting and does not receive taxpayer dollars.
The Port of Los Angeles A cleaner port. A brighter future.
