DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Dallas-based NGV Global Group, a leading manufacturing and logistics company that utilizes advanced natural gas technology to reduce carbon emissions, has developed a trailblazing line of F-650s that operate on compressed natural gas (CNG) and renewable natural gas (RNG). The 7.3L CNG / RNG F-650 box truck with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) up to 25,999 pounds is optimally configured to maximize load volume without requiring a commercial driver’s license (CDL). With escalating diesel prices and a nationwide shortage of CDL truck drivers, the F-650 offers a turnkey solution to meet a variety of commercial transportation and environmental needs.
Building on 14 years of experience in the natural gas industry, NGV Global Group has integrated proprietary Wing Power Systems technology to provide customers a powerful combination of engineering excellence and hands-on fleet expertise. The F-650 is Ford Q185 calibration and EPA certified due to the hard work of the NGV Global Group team, the established partnerships and intellectual property provided by Wing Power Systems.
Fully configured and delivered ready-to-operate, this Class 6 truck provides a market-ready solution with a CNG upfit, a 26-foot box and a 3,300-pound lift gate. NGV Global Group has already integrated the new F-650 into its own fleet through its subsidiary, GreenPath Logistics, which operates exclusively alternative fuel vehicles and helps customers reduce their carbon footprint by up to 85%.
“We specifically built this commercial vehicle after compiling operational data from thousands of trips and comparing the results with more than a decade of lab data,” says Shan Zaidi, president of NGV Global Group. “Having inspected, serviced, repaired and converted more than 15,000 natural gas vehicles over the past 14 years, we’ve learned a lot. The F-650 has been developed to address specific customer challenges and feedback while concurrently providing economical operational certainty that tackles carbon emission reduction and environmental sustainability objectives. The best part is that the vehicle is available for sale, lease or rent right now, while some allocations for 2022 inventory are still open.”
Additionally, through strategic partnerships, the F-650, which has a 500-mile range, can offer on-site fueling options, cost reduction guarantees or upfront price subsidies. On the horizon, customers will also have the opportunity to explore grant money through a variety of environmentally focused programs.
