Vision is a developer of zero emission hydrogen/electric hybrid powered vehicles and turnkey hydrogen fueling systems. Vision's proprietary hydrogen/electric hybrid drive system combines the:
The Tyrano™ is the nation’s 1st street-legal zero emission Class 8 hydrogen/electric hybrid, 80,000 lbs. GVWR truck designed for local and regional drayage*.
The Company's Zero Emission Terminal Tractor (ZERO-TT) is a zero emission, electric/hydrogen hybrid, 130,000 lbs. GVWR** terminal tractor designed to work a double shift before refueling.
* Drayage is the transport of containerized cargo by specialized trucking companies between ocean ports or rail ramps and shipping docks.
** A gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR)is the maximum allowable total weight of a road vehicle or trailer when loaded.
The Vision heavy-duty Class 8 trucks are substantially less expensive to operate on a per mile basis than diesel and natural gas powered trucks. The cost savings on a per mile basis versus diesel and natural gas, is expect to be around 35% to 45%.
Vision’s hydrogen/electric drive system has 536 HP and 3,300 ft.- lbs. of torque available -- almost double the pulling-power of a conventional diesel truck.

Vision’s Initial target market are the:
in the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, the largest port of entry system in the United States (with $304B of freight moved by 30,000 trucks per annum).
Vision was been awarded contracts by the Port of Long Beach to deliver a Class 8 Truck and Terminal Tractor for demonstration and drayage testing. Vision has also been awarded a $1.4MM contract by the Port of Los Angeles to retrofit 15 plugin/electric terminal tractors with its proprietary hydrogen fuel cell technology.
On July 22, 2011, Vision delivered the 1st Hydrogen/Electric Hybrid Class 8 Truck to the Port of Long Beach – The Hydrogen Fuel Economy has officially begun!
