BAF Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Clean Energy Fuels Corp., has expanded its CNG product line to include Ford vehicles equipped with the BAF proprietary bi-fuel compressed natural gas (CNG) system.
Set for availability in May 2011, the new BAF offering includes bi-fuel Ford E-250/350 vans and F-250/350 pick-up trucks. BAF is the first CNG vehicle upfitter in the United States to be named a Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM) for gaseous fuels.
“The ability to offer Ford QVM bi-fuel vehicles to the marketplace is a huge step forward,” said John Bacon, President, BAF Technologies. “Not only will our new BAF bi-fuel models provide commercial and municipal fleets with increased flexibility in deploying their vehicles, they will move us another step closer to getting CNG vehicles into the hands of consumers as the fueling infrastructure continues to develop.”
Crash-tested in accordance with official Federal Motor Vehicle Standards, the new BAF E-250/350 bi-fuel CNG vans have a standard fuel capacity of 10 gasoline gallon equivalents (GGE). The F-250/350 bi-fuel CNG pickup trucks will be available in both 10 GGE and 20 GGE packages.
