Grande West Announces CNG Clean Burning Fuel Option for Vicinity Line
Grande West Transportation Group, a Canadian bus manufacturer of heavy-duty mid-sized transit buses for sale in the US and Canada, is adding an important clean air propulsion option for its Vicinity bus line. Grande West is now offering clean burning, low emission Cummins Westport ISB G engines for delivery on 2017 orders.
The CNG-powered ISB G Engine has the lowest North American Emissions standards and is approved from both the US EPA and CARB. This certification represents major emissions reduction well below current EPA nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions standards—providing the cleanest engine in the bus industry. The engine also greatly reduces particulate matter (PM) providing major greenhouse gas benefits.
“We are seeing a growing demand for natural gas powered buses,” said Jean-Marc Landry, Executive VP of Sales and Marketing. “CNG has helped transit customers meet stringent clean air requirements and is now being requested on many tenders in Canada and the US.”
