Crossroads Equipment Lease & Finance Positioned at Forefront of Clean Commercial Vehicles

Crossroads Equipment Lease and Finance is an industry leader in programs designed to replace older on road commercial equipment with cleaner, lower emissions vehicles. For Earth Day this year, Freightliner’s new eCascadia made an appearance at Crossroads’ headquarters in Rancho Cucamonga for a preview of the zero emissions future of commercial transportation.

Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) recently announced it has begun accepting orders for Freightliner’s new eCascadia and eM2, the first all-electric commercial trucks available from the manufacturer, set to hit production late next year.

Crossroads is well-positioned to help deliver these new vehicles to fleets across the nation as the finance arm for Velocity Vehicle Group, the largest Freightliner dealer group in the United States.

Crossroads Chief Technology Officer Anthony Moses said, "Our team is excited about the wave of new technologies like fully electric powertrains and autonomous driver assistance systems revolutionizing the commercial transportation industry with Velocity Vehicle Group and Crossroads leading the way."

"We have a unique opportunity in California and around the country," said Crossroads President Howard Shiebler. "These new technologies offer a glimpse of a future with fewer carbon emissions, and we're very excited to be a part of that change."

"The future of zero-emission trucks is upon us and Velocity is proud to lead the charge, along with our great customers, and our partners at Freightliner and Daimler Trucks North America," said Scott Zeppenfeldt, Senior Vice President of Operations at Velocity Truck Centers. "While there are a lot of unknowns in transitioning to an electric fleet, supporting our customers in these types of projects is an integral step to starting the journey."

Velocity Vehicle Group operates over 30 commercial vehicle dealerships across the Southwest in California, Arizona, Nevada, and Hawaii, and the Southeast in Tennessee, Kentucky and Alabama. VVG provides new and used commercial vehicle sales.
