Truck News

MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Glasvan Great Dane has announced the Capacity PHETT hybrid shunt truck now qualifies for funding under Ontario’s Green Commercial Vehicle Program.


Capacity PHETT purchasers can now receive a rebate for up to $15,000 towards the purchase of the hybrid terminal tractor, however they must place their order by March 1, 2010 and take delivery by Sept. 1, 2010 to qualify.


Capacity officials have told that the PHETT reduces fuel consumption by 50-60% compared to traditional shunt trucks, often resulting in a payback of 3.5 years even without government incentives.


Glasvan Great Dane recently showed confidence in the technology, purchasing the very first PHETT in Canada which will be placed in its own busy trailer shunting operation.
