Vision ZERO-TT

Vision Industries Corp. and Balqon Corporation have entered into a Joint Development Agreement to build Vision’s zero-emission fuel cell–electric hybrid terminal tractor, the Zero-TT. The intended markets for the Zero-TT are distribution centers, rail yards and marine terminals.

This agreement combines the Cargotec USA Kalmar chassis with Balqon's drivetrain and Vision's hydrogen fuel cell range-extender. Balqon Corporation is a leading developer of zero-emissions electric drive systems, lithium battery storage systems and medium- to heavy-duty electric vehicles.

"We believe consolidating our efforts to address zero emission cargo transportation which combines our drive system and lithium battery technology with Vision's fuel cell technology will add to zero emission offerings available to customers seeking to reduce diesel emissions," says Balwinder Samra, CEO of Balqon Corporation.
