Westport Partners with Allied Specialty Vehicles
Allied Specialty Vehicles (ASV), a manufacturer of motor vehicles for commercial, fire and emergency and recreation markets, entered into an exclusive partnership with Westport. The partnership expands the availability of the CNG Westport WiNG Power System, currently offered as an option on ASV’s Type A school buses manufactured by Collins Bus, to the company’s commercial bus, emergency and other vehicle products.
“Our customers are demanding environmentally friendly vehicles powered by clean alternative fuel systems that reduce carbon emissions,” said Tim Sullivan, ASV president and CEO.
The Westport WiNG Power System is a dedicated natural gas fuel system for light-duty specialty vehicles built on Ford truck chassis and backed by a Ford Factory 3-year / 36,000-mile engine and powertrain warranty. Westport also conducts OEM approved safety testing, including simulations and physical crash testing that meets or exceeds OEM and U.S. federal safety standards.
Westport WiNG Power Systems are primarily installed in Dallas. However, the systems will be transitioned to ASV factory-certified installations to increase vehicle manufacturing efficiency.
