EPA certifies Westport’s Ford Transit modification
Posted: January 15, 2015
VANCOUVER, B.C. – Westport Innovations Inc. has received certification for its compressed natural gas modifications for the 2015 Ford Transit Van.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has given the WiNG Power System certification.
Westport expects California Air Resources Board (CARB) certification soon in 2015.
The Transit has had recent ‘breakout’ sales numbers, according to Ford, which announced earlier this week that in December 2014, the Transit Van had its best monthly performance since being introduced in 2014, with 10,030 units.
The 2015 Ford Transit Van model offers a 3.7L gaseous prep engine. The existing Ford warranty remains intact, and is matched by the Westport warranty for all like components. Westport has conducted all the same safety testing required for all Ford original equipment manufacturer (OEM) products.
