Orders From This First European Dealer, RohneSelmer, Now Total 58 Units

OAK PARK, Michigan, April 6, 2011 - Deploying the same successful distribution strategy utilized in North
, Azure Dynamics Corporation (TSX: AZD)(OTC: AZDDF) today announced
that it has named RohneSelmer Company AS in Oslo, Norway as its first
official European dealership for sales and service of the Transit Connect
Electric van. The dealership has placed an immediate order for 38 Transit
Connect Electric vans, bringing its total to 58 orders. RohneSelmer supported
Azure's inaugural Transit Connect Electric sales of 20 vans to Post Norway
and has extensive sales and service support experience of battery electric
vehicles in its three locations in and around Oslo. Rohneselmer is a family
owned business with over 75 years history as a Ford dealer.

"We are very pleased to have a European dealership of RohneSelmer
prominence join our global network of Transit Connect Electric dealerships in
support of the June European production launch," said Scott Harrison, Azure
CEO. "Since opening our European office last month, interest from European
commercial and private fleet operators continues to grow and selling 58
Transit Connect Electric vans in such a short period of time validates this
interest. Additionally, given RohneSelmer long and successful history being
one of the oldest Ford dealerships in Norway, their eagerness in ordering 26
Transit Connect Electric vans to meet customers' demands is meaningful."

Azure's strategy in Europe is to establish partnerships with carefully
selected Ford dealerships to offer high quality sales and service activities
in support of Transit Connect Electric. In North America, Azure has more than
100 such dealer relationships.

Azure Managing Director for Europe, Ricardo Espinosa, said, "We are
delighted to be working with the team at RohneSelmer as we grow our presence
in Europe. We need partners like them who are passionate, dedicated and have
vision to see this exciting new sector grow across Europe."

RohneSelmer Company Director, Christian August Selmer, added, "We're
extremely enthusiastic about the Transit Connect Electric van's potential and
are thrilled to be one of the first dealer partners to be involved in the
programme. Our experience with Post Norway showed that the vehicle has
important environmental and performance attributes that our customers want.
Our vehicle orders are based on our expectation of continued high levels of

Azure will begin assembling Transit Connect Electric vans in June, 2011
at a Lotus Lightweight Structures plant in Worcester, UK. Completed vans will
be shipped throughout Europe, although Norway has emerged as an early lead

Connect Electric can achieve a range of up to 130KM/80 miles on a single
charge and has a load capacity of 500kgs.

A unique combination of car-like driving dynamics, rugged load capacity
and low operating costs are characteristics that make the Transit Connect
Electric van an ideal choice for commercial fleet operators looking to reduce
operational costs and lessen the impact their business has on the

The Transit Connect Electric powertrain provides powerful benefits for
