“As we enter a new era of vehicle technology development, and quickly growing emissions reduction mandates, companies must co-innovate to help solve the technology and manufacturing and service gap in the medium- and heavy-duty [vehicle] industry,” said EDI CEO Joerg Ferchau.
“The integration of EDI’s advanced EV and PHEV technology into the First Priority GreenFleet alternative fuel vehicles platform is extremely valuable, as it accelerates bringing solutions to market and maximizes support efficiencies for our customers,” said First Priority GreenFleet CEO Alex Cherepakhov. “We’ll work closely with EDI to bring cost-effective solutions to market that demonstrate immediate impact to the industry, and close the technology gap for fleet operators.”
