Currently, Westport exclusively installs the natural gas Westport WiNG™ Power System on the Ford F-250 through F-550 series at its assembly center in Louisville, KY. This acquisition increases Westport’s product range with the Ford line to include transit, cargo shuttle and taxi vehicles and dedicated natural gas vehicles for markets such as California. BAF has been producing a broad list of NGV conversions for more than a decade. Westport will continue to install its WiNG™ system and the increased volume of orders expected through BAF will build economies of scale, and the BAF network will allow more flexibility in producing special configurations.
Moreover, Westport has committed $5 million to a new co-marketing program aimed at increasing the natural gas vehicle market, and will allow Westport to provide purchase incentives for fleets, including fuel credits, and includes a commitment from Clean Energy to purchase Westport products.
