Orlando, Fla. — Allied Specialty Vehicles (ASV), a leading manufacturer of motor vehicles for commercial, fire & emergency, and recreation markets, announced an exclusive partnership with CleanFUEL USA, an industry leader in propane auto gas technology. Under the partnership, CleanFUEL USA (cleanfuelusa.com) will provide products and services to expand ASV’s line of alternative fuel vehicles, namely propane auto gas.

“ASV has a long relationship working with CleanFUEL USA on propane auto gas fleet installations for type A school buses at Collins Bus. Expanding this relationship across all ASV vehicle brands will increase the breadth of propane auto gas systems we can offer to our customers,” said Tim Sullivan, ASV president and CEO. “We’re proud of our commitment to offer green energy alternative fuel options such as propane that have long-term benefits to the environment.”

The partnership agreement calls for CleanFUEL USA’s propane auto gas systems currently installed by third-party upfitters to be transitioned to ASV factory-certified installations. Sullivan says this change will not only offer customers a full OEM warranty, but it will increase installation efficiency and improve overall quality control. The two companies will also work together to develop customer service centers that will offer spare parts and maintenance services for a full suite of CleanFUEL USA propane auto gas systems for multiple ASV product lines and their customers.

ASV also announced an exclusive partnership with Westport (westport.com), a global leader in alternative fuel, low-emissions transportation technologies. The partnership expands the availability of the compressed natural gas (CNG) Westport WiNG™ Power System to the company’s commercial bus products.

The Westport WiNG™ Power System is a dedicated natural gas fuel system for light-­duty specialty vehicles built on Ford truck chassis and backed by a Ford Factory 3-year/36,000-­mile engine and powertrain warranty. As a leading CNG Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM), Westport designed its system to meet Ford’s OEM standards. Westport also conducts rigorous, OEM-approved safety testing, including extensive simulations and physical crash testing that meets or exceeds OEM and U.S. federal safety standards.
