    • Freightliner Natural Gas Product OverviewOctober 18th , 2012-U.S. Oil meeting-Kimberly
    • Daimler Trucks North America
    • Customer Purchase Process – A lot of questionsQuestions to be answered…• FUEL – FUEL – FUEL – FUEL – FUEL – FUEL?• Will products work? ~16.646” ~24.736” ~3.711”• Maintenance?• Shop criteria?• Trucks available?• Warranties?• Range?• Weight/length difference?• Funding availability?• Financing? Daimler Trucks North America
    • What’s Driving Natural Gas?• Improving operating economics vs. diesel• Increasing diesel fuel costs driving quick NG payback• No DPF, No Regens and No SCR• Reduced GHG Emissions; 20% Average• Noise reduction- 10 db reduction vs diesel• Domestic Fuel-98 % sourced in North America• American jobs• Renewable Fuel• Energy independence• Customer driven sustainable solution 4 Daimler Trucks North America
    • Natural Gas Basics COMPRESSED NATURAL GAS LIQUEFIED NATURAL GAS• Natural Gas that is compressed – • Natural Gas that is cryogenically typically to 3,600 psi – for dispensing cooled – to 260oF – for dispensing and and storage storage• Gas is distributed through natural gas • Gas is processed at LNG production pipeline (the same infrastructure that and transported by special truck to delivers to homes and businesses the fuel location currently) to the fuel location • LNG is stored at fuel location in• Gas is compressed at fuel location cryogenic tanks and dispensed into CNG for dispensing into the truck directly into the truck• Dispensing is similar to gasoline or • Dispensing requires special safety diesel fuel equipment• The CNG is stored on the vehicle in • The LNG is stored on the vehicle in one or more cylinders cryogenic tanks5 Daimler Trucks North America
    • Natural Gas Basics COMPRESSED NATURAL GAS LIQUEFIED NATURAL GAS• ADVANTAGES: ADVANTAGES:• Lowest price (compared to diesel & • Lower price than diesel LNG) • Fastest Fill• Lowest emissions • LNG is lower weight than CNG; allows• Extensive infrastructure already greater storage and distance exists• “Truck-Friendly” technology CHALLENGES: • InfrastructureCHALLENGES: • Venting; Performance Issues• Volume per energy content (requires • Higher production and distribution more storage) costs•Additional weight and OAL • Truck cost for larger engine (15L)•Range limits • Shop Requirements•Performance of existing stations 6 Daimler Trucks North America
    • Freightliner Experience: Factory Installation• All Freightliner natural gas trucks & tractors manufactured on the production line at Mt Holly & Cleveland NC plants • ISL G and fuel tanks installed on the production line • Orders placed through same tool and process as diesel vehicles• All Natural Gas components can be factory installed and warranted! 7 Daimler Trucks North America
    • Pioneers in Natural Gas Market• Freightliner Trucks: THE leader in natural gas deliveries of conventional heavy duty trucks• Sterling product launch at Port of Long beach• Morethan 1400 natural gas-powered trucks and tractors since 2008, plus hundreds more on order• First to publicly demonstrate ISX12 G-powered vehicle• Local customer base with the product working• Foodliner fleet experience Daimler Trucks North America
    • CNG Cross Country Tour Summary• What: Drive Cascadia with ISX12 G from Long Beach, CA to Washington, DC • Dealer events • Micro site – freightlinergreen.com - with blogs, photos, videos, social media • PR• When: Began following ACT Expo May 17, 2012. First stop on May 18. Tour completed at dealer meeting location in Washington May 26.• 5 stops between Long Beach and Washington: • Phoenix • OKC • Little Rock • Nashville • Charlotte• Why: Promote Cascadia with new 12 liter natural gas engine. Keep FTL in spotlight as a natural gas product that works in the real world. Daimler Trucks North America 9

    • Dealer/Customer Shop Requirements• NFPA 30A requirements/International fire code• Full implementation can cost $50K per bay• Differences in CNG (odorized) vs. LNG (non-odorized) repair requirements• Local fire marshal has final say• Major fuel system repairs - same requirements for both CNG & LNG • Must call in certified professional – local utility, Agility General Requirement CNG LNG Explosion proof lighting X X Methane detection X Heater location X Exhaust fans X Daimler Trucks North America 13
    • Driver reactions•Safety questions•Fueling•Availability of fuel•Time to fuel/tank size•Power•Proud Americans Daimler Trucks North America
    • Methane Detection• Sensors mounted in cab, engine compartment• Visuallyand audibly warns driver of fuel leaks • Trace amount (no concern) • Significant amount (potential explosion concern)• NGwill ignite when there is a 5%-15% mixture in the air In overhead console• MethaneDetection installed on LNG and CNG vehicles• Future – potential option to omit with CNG configurations when specing SmartPlex Electrical System Daimler Trucks North America
    • Daimler Trucks North America
    • How Safe is Natural Gas?• Heavily regulated industry• 20 year tank life• TYPE III and IV Tanks, lightest weight• Methane is lighter than air; will not pool under vehicle• Drop/crash Testing• Bonfire testing• Dynamite testing• Pistol/rifle testing – armor piercing bullets• Google “CNG Tank Testing” – Numerous Web Sites and You Tube Videos• SUMMARY: NATURAL GAS IS AS SAFE, OR SAFER, THAN DIESEL AND GASOLINE Daimler Trucks North America
    • NG Fuel Location & Price Resources-WWW.CNGPRICES.com CNGprices.com – prices listed in Gasoline Gallon Equivalent. Add 13% to price to get Diesel Gallon Equivalent pricing Daimler Trucks North America 18
