"Since its introduction in 2002, the Ford Transit Connect has had
phenomenal sales success in cities across Europe and we're eager to launch
its all-electric counterpart, Transit Connect Electric," said Scott Harrison,
CEO of Azure Dynamics. "Since receiving the first 14 Transit Connect Electric
vehicles in Europe this past December, we are very encouraged by the initial
reaction and interest from both European public and private commercial fleet
operators. Many of our potential customers have experience with the
conventional gas vehicle and are now eager to enjoy the operational and
environmental benefits of our pure-electric ForceDriveTM powertrain."

cargo capacity, accessibility and low costs of operation. It can achieve a
