MT. HOLLY, N.C. — Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) is celebrating the production of its thousandth hybrid-electric vehicle.
The company brought customers, partners and employees together recently to watch its 1,000th hybrid roll off the assembly line – a Freightliner Business Class M2 106. The truck was built at Freightliner’s Mt. Holly, N.C. plant.
“DTNA has worked closely with our partners and customers to develop leading-edge hybrid solutions that shape future transportation by maximizing fuel efficiency while also benefiting the environment,” said Mark Lampert, senior vice-president of sales and marketing for DTNA. “And it is because of the shared dedication between us, our partners and customers that we were able to reach this important 1,000th vehicle milestone.”
Last spring, Daimler opened a Local Hybrid Application Center in Portland, Ore., which will serve as the company’s home for further hybrid product research and development.
