Starting April 1, customers are expected to be able to order the Ford F-250 through F-550 Super Duty trucks equipped with either the 6.2-litre V8 or 6.8-litre V10 gasoline engines for use with the Westport WiNG Power System at Westport authorized Ford dealerships throughout Canada. The trucks delivered to Canadian customers will undergo the same rigorous safety and durability testing required for all Ford original equipment manufacturer (OEM) products.
“Westport’s product entry into the Canadian market demonstrates an increasing awareness of the tremendous potential of natural gas transportation technologies to reduce carbon emissions and contribute to Canada’s economic prosperity,” added Alicia Milner, President of CNGVA and Chair of NGV Global. “With Westport’s bi-fuel trucks now available in Canada, fleets will have an increasing selection of natural gas vehicles to choose from that reduce their operating costs and lower fleet emissions.”
