The Natural Gas Vehicle Institute announced the release of its online Buyers’ Guide exclusively for natural gas vehicles. The guide is designed to be a source of all commercially-available Class 1-8 natural gas vehicles, engines and conversion systems. For a limited time, guide is being offered at a special introductory rate for a 12-month subscription. It is available online through NGVi’s website, www.ngvi.com/bg.
“Natural gas is an economically and environmentally smart alternative to gasoline and diesel for fleets,” says Annalloyd Thomason, vice president and general manager of NGVi. “More and more companies are incorporating natural gas into their fleets. NGVi recognizes the importance of giving fleet professionals the resources and tools needed to develop and implement a successful natural gas vehicle deployment strategy. That’s why we developed the NGV Buyers’ Guide.”
The guide allows the user to search by fuel type, vehicle class, vehicle type, model year and manufacturer, including original equipment manufacturers, small volume manufacturers and engine and chassis manufacturers. Search results yield vehicle specification information and vehicle images. Contact information for each manufacturer and natural gas industry partners also is included to help make purchasing decisions easier.
“All this information may be available from each individual manufacturer, but our guide cuts down the initial research by making it all available in one central location,” says Thomason. “We worked as closely as possible with each manufacturer to ensure accuracy. We will continue to with them to regularly update the guide as new vehicles enter the market, keeping the guide as accurate as possible.”
