For Immediate Release


HAUPPAUGE, NY, October 29, 2007 -- Odyne Corporation (OTCBB:ODYC), a clean technology company that develops advanced hybrid electric vehicle propulsion systems, today announced that it had completed a private placement of 10% senior secured convertible notes and warrants to purchase common stock, and received gross proceeds in the amount of $3.2 million.

The net proceeds of the private placement will be used by Odyne for its working capital and capital expenditure requirements. The private placement was led by The Quercus Trust, which has been an investor in several small cap renewable energy companies. In addition, Odyne Chief Executive Officer Alan Tannenbaum, a former Lehman Brothers managing director, also invested in the private placement.

"This financing solidifies our working capital position and allows us to continue executing our business plan," says Mr. Tannenbaum. "We have three main product lines: PHEV systems for refuse and recycling trucks; PHEV systems for buses; and a PHEV system for aerial lift trucks for utility maintenance that we recently launched as a joint venture with Deuco Inc. Our objective for 2008 is to deliver reliable, effective, efficient PHEV systems for these platforms."

Odyne's notes and warrants were offered and sold in units only to "accredited investors," (as defined in Regulation D of the Securities Act). Each unit consisted of $100,000 principal amount of 10% senior secured convertible debentures and warrants to purchase shares of common stock at an exercise price of $.75 per share, subject to certain anti-dilution provisions.

The debentures bear interest at 10% percent per year, payable in cash or freely-tradable common stock at Odyne's option. The warrants are exercisable at any time and expire three years from issuance.
