COLLINS BUS AND WESTPORT PARTNER TO LAUNCH CNG TYPE A SCHOOL BUS
On Wednesday, Collins Bus Corporation, a leading manufacturer of Type A school and multi- function school activity buses, announced that it is accepting orders for its new CNG model that provides an estimated 250-300 mile range. Built on a Ford E-450 6.8L cutaway chassis, Collins’ CNG bus features the Westport WiNG Power System dedicated natural gas fuel system. The WiNG Power System is CARB and EPA certified and is backed by Ford’s Factory 5-year/60,000-mile engine and powertrain warranty. Westport worked with Collins to conduct extensive simulations and physical crash-testing to meet the stringent school bus safety requirements. Collins will begin delivery this fall.
