Worksport to Launch World’s First Tonneau Cover Integration with Solar Technology for Pick-up Trucks
Leading tonneau cover and truck accessory producer, Worksport, to release information on the forthcoming TerraVis product line - the first ever series of solar power integrations for pick-up trucks.
TORONTO, CANADA, Nov. 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The current lead investment and subsidiary of Franchise Holdings International (OTCQB: FNHI), Worksport Ltd., has applied for trademark and is set to release information regarding its plan to move forward with a groundbreaking new technological initiative, TerraVis.
FNHI has previously made reference to TerraVis under the proposed name of Helios. The temporary name Helios will no longer be utilized and, in an effort to streamline all communications and business activities, TerraVis will be used exclusively moving forward. This ambitious development follows a recently awarded trademark allowance for Worksport, it’s third in 2019, further securing Worksports position as a fierce competitor in the industry. FNHI has taken recent action to apply for the TerraVis word mark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (UPSTO) and, as no similar trademark exists within the current market, the Corporation expects that the mark will be granted by the UPSTO within the year.
An initiative of Worksport, TerraVis is a mobile panel and solar generator system completely unique in both its design and application. The name TerraVis is derived from the Latin terminology for earth (terra) and force (vis). TerraVis will encompass a line of innovative and powerful solar generator integrations for trucks, making the connection between earth and force a vital component of the vision and energy behind TerraVis. The very first of its kind, this brand new solar generator system is a breakthrough innovation that aims to affordably modernize and enhance the trucks of today while working towards carbon neutrality.
Worksport has made significant developments in the design phase and confirms that TerraVis—comparable to no other products currently available on the market—will leverage the cutting edge technology of solar energy alongside the practical versatility of tonneau covers and pick-up truck accessories. “The TerraVis system has the potential to effectively off-grid trucks, allowing them to capture and utilize solar energy whether they have been engineered with electric capabilities or not,” says FNHI CEO, Steven Rossi. “We are creating a system that will bridge a substantial gap in the current market—a gap between every-day truck owners and the future’s most promising technologies.”
Worksport is currently seeking investment capital to aid in the next phase of development for TerraVis, and FNHI encourages investors, shareholders and customers alike to keep a close watch for further TerraVis announcements in the coming weeks. The Corporation expects to release additional information and a comprehensive TerraVis website launch later this month.
