OAK PARK, Michigan, June 14, 2011 -

Dealer to represent innovative Ford
Transit Connect Electric to commercial fleet customers

  • The Hugo Pfohe GmbH network of 10 Ford dealerships in Northern
    will represent Transit Connect Electric with sales and
    service agreement
  • Ford Transit Connect Electric now available in Germany, Norway,
    and U.K., with additional country announcements forthcoming
  • European assembly and shipments of Transit Connect Electric
    vans to begin this week

Azure Dynamics Corporation (TSX: AZD)(OTC: AZDDF) and Ford
Europe announced today that Hugo Pfohe GmbH will be the first
German dealership group for sales and service of the Ford Transit
Connect Electric van.  Transit Connect Electric will be
available through Pfohe’s 10 Ford dealerships across Northern

“With our European Transit Connect Electric manufacturing set to
commence this week, it’s critical that we organize a network of
Ford dealerships for representation across Europe,” said Ricardo
, Azure’s managing director in Europe.  “The Pfohe
Group has 90 years experience successfully representing Ford
products to private and fleet customers and will be a valuable
partner in presenting the Transit Connect Electric to German
commercial fleet customers.”

Philip Pfohe, general manager of Hugo Pfohe GmbH, also serves as
the Chairman of the European Ford Dealer Association.

“It is vital that future transportation can be achieved in a
more environmentally positive manner,” said Pfohe.  “To our
knowledge, Transit Connect Electric is the best product in class to
enable our customers to achieve their transportation needs with the
environmental benefits of electric power.  With a number of
companies interested in understanding the potential of Transit
Connect Electric, backed by German government support for electric
vehicles in general, we believe that this vehicle is being
introduced at exactly the right time.”

With a unique combination of car-like driving dynamics, rugged
load capacity and low operating costs, the Transit Connect Electric
van is an ideal choice for German commercial fleet operators
looking to reduce operational costs and lessen their impact on the

German Chancellor href="">Angela Merkel
recently committed to having one million electric cars on German
roads by 2020.

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.  To
that end, Transit Connect Electric will now be available via Hugo
Pfohe stores in Hamburg (three stores), Schwerin (two stores), Bad
Segeberg, Norderstedt, Lübeck, Kiel and Oldenburg.  Pfohe also
operates a fully-owned subsidiary in Bulgaria (Moto-Pfohe).

To create the Transit Connect Electric, Azure integrates its
proven Force Drive[TM]electric
powertrain into the award-winning Ford Transit Connect. Utilizing
an advanced lithium-ion battery, Transit Connect Electric can
achieve a range of up to 80-130KM/50-80 miles on a single charge
and has a load capacity of 500kgs.

The Transit Connect Electric powertrain provides powerful
benefits for commercial vehicle users who have drive cycles that
often include predictable, short range routes with frequent
stop/start driving in city/urban environments.

Azure’s manufacturing partner, Lotus Lightweight Structures,
will begin assembling and shipping Transit Connect Electric vans
next week from its plant in Worcester, UK.  Completed vans
will be shipped throughout Europe.  Post Norway was previously
announced as Transit Connect Electric’s first European customer
with a 20-van order.
