Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) has been recognized with the 2019 Clean Air Technology award from the South Coast Air Quality Management District (South Coast AQMD).

DTNA was recognized for its Innovation Fleet from Freightliner, a 30-vehicle fleet of battery electric medium- and heavy-duty trucks currently testing integration of battery electric commercial vehicles into large-scale transportation operations.

In keeping with the mission of South Coast AQMD to reduce pollutants, greenhouse gasses and petroleum usage throughout its district, the Freightliner Innovation Fleet is used in drayage operations by NFI at the ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles and in regional deliveries by Penske Truck Leasing throughout the Inland Empire. Testing of the battery electric commercial vehicles precedes the start of series production for both models, currently scheduled for late 2021.
