2 Who is Azure Dynamics? > Azure Dynamics is the industry leader in hybrid electric and electric powertrain solutions in the Class 3 & 4 vehicle segment.

3 The Azure Brand Azure Dynamics (AZD) is a leader in the development and commercialization of technology for highly-efficient, cost- effective and environmentally-friendly hybrid electric and electric powertrain solutions. Headquartered in Detroit with offices in Vancouver, Boston, Toronto and the UK AZDs history dates back 20+ years (formerly Solectria) 100+ engineers/techs comprise one of the largest, most experienced, hybrid-electric & electric powertrain groups worldwide Over 25 million miles of on the road experience

4 What We Build PARALLEL HYBRID Mechanical connection between engine and electric drive motor which is also used as a generator during braking ELECTRIC Battery stored energy drives vehicle – zero tailpipe emissions

6 Transit Connect Electric > Ford Motor Company, collaborating with Azure Dynamics, introduced an Electric Transit Connect commercial van to market in > Azure has integrated its proprietary Force Drive battery electric drivetrain into the Transit Connect Electric. D UAL B ADGE

7 Transit Connect Electric > Transit Connect Electric will build on the existing business relationship between Ford and Azure as well as their shared experience with the battery supplier, Johnson Controls-Saft.

8 Transit Connect Electric What is it? Fords first dedicated small commercial van > Versatile > Spacious > Hard-working > Proven > Electric

9 Transit Connect -- History > Over 600,000 sold since 2003 to customers in 58 countries on 3 continents (gas version). > Introduced to North America in 2009; has proven to be a big success. > Designed, engineered and manufactured on a dedicated global commercial vehicle platform to meet tough commercial vehicle durability standards.

10 Battery Electric -- Why Buy? > Car-like driving dynamics, cargo capacity, accessibility, low purchase and operation costs. > For commercial users traveling predictable, short-range routes with frequent stop-and-go driving in urban/suburban environments, a BEV makes sense. > For customers seeking sustainable mobility solutions, the Transit Connect Electric provides a zero emissions option.
