    Mondo, no need to repeatedly demonstrate your stupidity, it has already been well established. Westport Fuel Systems and Westport Innovations are the same company. Kindly explain how the same company competes with itself? Mondo, your new name is "Clueless".

    IMPCO Technologies, Inc., a global leader in the alternative fuel industry and a division of Westport Fuel Systems Inc., has reaffirmed the release of its new Heavy Duty/Light Weight Rail Auxiliary Power Unit.

    A photo accompanying this release is available at http://www.globenewswire.com/NewsRoom/AttachmentNg/cb1258e5-635a-4d7d-9451-e10adaa3b48a.

    This innovative technology, developed in collaboration with the railroad industry expert Canadian Environmental Technologies (CET), was presented in March 2015 at the ASLRRA Show in Orlando. It then launched at the Rail Interchange Show in Minneapolis, in October 2015, where it was received very positively by the market.

    IMPCO's Light Weight Rail Auxiliary Power Unit generates great fuel savings, while guaranteeing engine heating, battery charge and cabin comfort. A Perkins/CAT 3 cylinder diesel engine powers a durable alternator capable of delivering up to 150A of 72V DC current, whilst providing the required heat to keep the locomotive engine warm, even in extreme cold weather.

    The advanced control system and software allows safe operation of the unit and protects the locomotive by continuously monitoring the water temperature and state-of-charge of the batteries. The product is designed for minimized weight and footprint, low maintenance, minimum downtime and maximized fuel savings.

  • Colorado Gov. Signs Legislation to Simplify Tax Credits for AFVs

    Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper has officially signed legislation that will simplify and expand existing tax credits for taxpayers who purchase vehicles powered by alternative fuels, including electric, hydrogen and compressed natural gas.

    The legislation, H.B.16-1332, provides between $5,000 and $20,000 for the purchase or conversion of an alternative fuel vehicle (AFV), depending on whether it is a light-, medium- or heavy-duty vehicle. Specifically, the bill states that light-duty trucks qualify for a $7,000 assignable tax credit, medium-duty trucks and buses qualify for $10,000, and heavy-duty trucks and buses qualify for $20,000. To lease an AFV, the legislation will provide between $2,500 and $10,000.

    The legislation eliminates the need to calculate the incremental cost of the vehicle and allows buyers to claim the tax credit at the time of purchase.

    The bill summary states that this legislation concerns “modifications to the income tax credits for alternative fuel motor vehicles, and, in connection therewith, fixing specified dollar amounts for the credits, allowing the credit to be assigned to a financing entity, requiring vehicle identification number tracking of the motor vehicle for which a credit is claimed, and making an appropriation.”

    The bill will go into effect on Jan. 1, 2017.

    “This is the best incentive for electric vehicle [EV] sales in the nation at the moment, and we expect it to have a big impact on EV sales in the state,” says Will Toor, director of transportation programs at the Southwest Energy Efficiency Project (SWEEP).

  • Volvo Car Launches New V90 BiFuel Station Wagon

    8:00 am ET June 23, 2016 (PR Newswire) Print
    ~ Leverages same Westport natural gas technology as award-winning sports wagon ~

    Westport Fuel Systems Inc. ("Westport") (TSX:WPT / NASDAQ:WPRT), a premier global company for the engineering, manufacturing and supply of alternative fuel systems and components, today announced that Volvo Car will launch the BiFuel version of its new V90 station wagon. This vehicle 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.

    This engine can run on either compressed natural gas (CNG)/biomethane or petrol and forms part of Volvo Car's Engine Architecture, which ranks as one of the best engine families in the world. It is expected to offer low emissions of 120g CO2 when run on CNG and 40g CO2 when 100% Biogas is used. As well as showcasing excellent green credentials, the car will also feature a high-performance 254 horsepower engine, 350NM torque and an eight-speed automatic gearbox to ensure a world-class driving experience.

    "The Volvo V90 BiFuel will be an important model for us. It will primarily benefit our taxi fleet customers, and it will also be good for companies with an explicit environmental policy," said Fredrik Isakson, Manager Fleet Sales and Business Development at Volvo Car Sverige.

    "Westport and Volvo Car are working together to provide customers with leading natural gas technology, great performance and ultimately a low-emissions profile. 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 combination of Volvo Car's exemplary automotive engineering and Westport's advanced natural gas technology ensures that the V90 BiFuel will provide both a superior driving exper
