Landi Renzo USA has received California Air Resources Board (CARB) Certification for the Heavy Duty Ford CNG/biomethane 7.3L engine, which covers Class 4-7 vehicles, including F-450/550, F-650/750, F-53/59 and E-450. “This accomplishment is a key milestone for clean transportation in the trucking industry. It is an ecomobility revolution,” said Andrea Landi, president of Landi Renzo USA.
The Landi Renzo ‘Eco-Ready’ Dedicated CNG system for the 7.3L engine represents the cleanest power source available for airport and hotel shuttle buses, delivery trucks, service trucks, large package trucks as well as other vocational offerings. Many of these vehicles will be able to take advantage of various clean air grant funding opportunities.
During this multi-year effort, Landi Renzo USA, in partnership with Ford Motor Company, conducted extensive engine and vehicle testing to meet the stringent Ford Q-185 gaseous prep guidelines and demonstrate full useful life durability.
The Landi Renzo USA system is the only Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM) Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and CARB certified CNG product in the market.
