VivoPower International is pleased to announce that it has executed a Design Services Agreement (DSA) with Toyota Motor Corporation Australia Limited (TMCA) for its wholly-owned subsidiary, Tembo e-LV to be commercially engaged in relation to the next stage of design of electrification solutions for the Toyota LandCruiser 70 for off-road applications in Australia.
The DSA reflects the commercial next step in Tembo’s collaboration programme with TMCA, which was initially announced as a binding letter of intent in June 2021. VivoPower has established a Tembo subsidiary in Australia and will commit dedicated Tembo resources to this important programme.
VivoPower’s Executive Chairman and CEO, Kevin Chin said: “We are honoured to have entered into this commercial agreement with TMCA and are fully committed to working closely with the TMCA team to deliver an electrified LandCruiser 70, which is fit for purpose and safe for corporate fleets, especially for off-road use cases such as mining. In this regard, we have now dedicated a team within Tembo that is solely focused on this important TMCA project.
