Volvo Car Launches New V90 BiFuel Station Wagon with Westport Fuel System
Westport Fuel Systems announced that Volvo Car will launch the BiFuel version of its new V90 station wagon. The V90 is based on the same engine technology as the Volvo V60 sports wagon, which recently won second place in the Best Environmental Car in Sweden—company car category.
“By collaborating with OEMs, like Volvo Car, we are able to develop vital technology solutions to reduce emissions and continue to meet demand for premium natural gas vehicles,” said Nancy Gougarty, President and COO of Westport.
The high-performance 254 horsepower engine can run on either CNG or gasoline and features an eight-speed automatic gearbox. Sales of the V90 BiFuel, which will supersede the Volvo V70, will start in Sweden in June, 2016. Vehicle deliveries are expected to start in December, 2016.
