The CNG and gasoline tanks have a combined range of 650 miles. The production of the bi-fuel pickup trucks is underway in Fort Wayne, Ind., and they are available for order by fleet and retail customers through Chevrolet and GMC dealers.
“Customers are choosing our bi-fuel trucks because they provide the same high level of GM truck performance and versatility but can also help businesses control their fuel costs and reduce their carbon footprint,” said Ed Peper, General Motors U.S. vice president of Fleet and Commercial Sales.
In turn, Nate Pumphrey, Chesapeake Energy Corp. director of Fleet Operations stated: “At Chesapeake, we are converting our fleet of more than 5,000 vehicles to run on natural gas, and having options from GMC and Chevy is critical to help us reach our conversion goal. Following our full conversion, we will save $11 million to $12 million annually on fuel costs”.
