“Obtaining GM’s decision to release the vehicles required the completion of an extensive development, testing, validation and approval process. We are proud of this accomplishment, which marks the commercial launch of bi-fuel pickups manufactured through our program with GM,” said Mariano Costamagna, Fuel Systems Solutions’ CEO.
Moreover, the company has received from GM a new 2013 contract that expands the CNG product offering for this year to include both the regular (135-inch / 3,429-mm) and extended (155-inch / 3,937-mm) wheelbase lengths for the Express and Savana Cargo Vans.
In 2011, Fuel Systems announced that its subsidiary IMPCO Automotive had been selected by General Motors as the Tier-One supplier for a new compressed natural gas bi-fuel commercial vehicle.
