Westport Introduces New Stocking Program to Cut Wait Times
Westport announced it is launching a new stocking program that will see its NGVs available at select Ford dealerships across the U.S. In Oklahoma, Texas, Alabama, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, Kentucky and Florida participating dealerships will be stocking range of bi-fuel and dedicated CNG Westport WiNG Power System vehicles including the Ford F-150, F-250, the Transit Van and the F-59. “The wait time will be cut to as little as a couple of days from placement of order to receipt of vehicle,” said Paul Shaffer, Westport Dallas vice president and managing director. The purpose of the Westport Stocking Program, expected to be in place by early 2015, is to have product readily available for purchase without having to wait for the vehicle to be built and is expected to reduce customer wait times by up to 120 days. The program also affords fleets and customers the opportunity to test or demo the vehicles from their local Ford participating dealer.
