LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - March 4, 2009) - Vision Industries Corp. (OTCBB: VIIC), is pleased to announce that its prototype zero emission plug-in electric/hydrogen fuel cell Tyrano™ truck is beginning its performance, efficiency and road testing program next week.

Martin Schuermann, President and CEO of Vision stated, "We are excited to see the Tyrano moving under its own power. This is a huge milestone in our mission to provide the world's 1st commercially viable, zero emission electric/hydrogen heavy duty class 8 tractor truck. This truck has been designed to replace short haul diesel trucks in the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. A single Tyrano truck operating out of the ports will reduce annual CO2 emissions by up to 274 tons. This amount equals the annual CO2 emissions produced by 63 cars."
