Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

Canada Post has ordered five Azure Balance Hybrid Electric vehicles as part of its stated goal to replace aged vehicles over the next five years with more efficient vehicles.

The five hybrid electric vehicles will serve at Canada Post facilities across Canada and are part of Canada Post's stated effort to replace 3,000 aged vehicles over the next five years. The vehicles will be delivered in the first quarter of 2010.

Canada Post uses more than 7,000 vehicles in its fleet to reach every Canadian home and business and believes that its long term economic health is directly linked to the health of employees, communities and the environment.

The addition of these Azure Balance Hybrid Electric delivery vehicles is an important milestone in Canada Post's drive to advance and adopt "new" technology that allows Canada Post to achieve its aggressive GHG reduction target and fuel economy improvement plans.

Jim Keay Ford Lincoln Sales in
Orleans, ON managed the transaction. The vehicles are the first Azure units sold by Jim Keay Ford Lincoln representing another achievement for Azure's channel distribution strategy of partnering with select Ford commercial truck dealers and premier body vendors to help represent Azure products in the marketplace.
