As Ford’s largest qualified vehicle modifier, the company is expanding its vehicle lineup with two new NGV fuel options: it is offering the 2015 Ford Transit Connect as a dedicated or bi-fuel CNG Westport WiNG™ Power System vehicle.
Dedicated and bi-fuel options will give fleets more fuel flexibility when choosing to fill up with CNG. Westport’s Transit Connect will be compliant with Clean Port Act emissions standards, ensuring that fleets and small businesses who service airports can take advantage of natural gas.
Often used to transport passengers and cargo, the 2015 Ford Transit Connect model offers a 2.5L gaseous prep engine with improved fuel economy over gasoline. Westport is accepting orders now through Ford dealerships.
Earlier this year, Westport announced that all its natural gas fuel system products and body configurations for Ford vehicles will be offered and commercialized under the Westport WiNG™ Power System brand.
