In February 2012, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) certified DTNA's complete portfolio of model year 2013 on-highway, vocational and medium-duty vehicles as fully compliant with the new GHG14 regulations. DTNA is the first and only North American commercial vehicle manufacturer to be certified as GHG14 compliant.
DTNA's commitment to green technologies is part of parent company Daimler AG's global "Shaping Future Transportation" initiative. The initiative is focused on reducing criteria pollutants, carbon dioxide and fuel consumption through the utilization of clean, efficient drive systems and alternative fuels.
Freightliner Trucks will start production on the Cascadia Evolution in 2013.
