January 16, 2013 - DALLAS, TX —BAF Technologies, A Clean Energy Company, announced it has received EPA approvals and CARB Executive Orders for its 2013 vehicle lineup. With the additional vehicles in the product line, BAF retains its position as the company with the most Ford CNG products available in the industry.
"No other company – including the OEMs – produce a deeper CNG product line than BAF," says John R. Bacon, BAF President. "Not only do we have more vehicle platforms than anyone else, we also offer more choices and customizations within each platform."
BAF has the first Ford F-250/350 pickup truck with an underbody tank package in the industry, giving drivers the use of the full truck bed – something fleets have long desired. The company continues to expand its R&D efforts and is working on adding Lincoln "black car" vehicles to its lineup to better serve limo markets.
The 2013 Dedicated CNG Vehicle Lineup:
• Ford Transit Connect - EPA approval; CARB pending
• Ford F-250/350 - EPA & CARB approvals
• Ford F-450/550/650 - EPA & CARB approvals
• Ford F-59 - EPA & CARB approvals
• Ford E-250/350 - EPA & CARB approvals
• Ford E-450/550 - EPA & CARB approvals
The 2013 B-Fuel CNG Vehicle Lineup:
• Ford Transit Connect - EPA
• Ford F-250/350 - EPA
• Ford E-250/350 - EPA
Underbody Tank Package:
• F-250/350 - EPA & CARB approvals (dedicated CNG)
All BAF vehicles under 10,000 GVW are crash-test worthy (FMVSS 303). 2013 vehicles for conversion should be ordered before the close of the order window of May/June depending on vehicle platform.
This is extremely important for Fleet Managers that procure Ford vehicles around the country to understand. When they realize the vast financial savings through the use of Natural Gas Vehicles (NGV’s) and the benefits of compressed natural gas (CNG) as a transportation fuel, which includes reducing fuel costs by 35-50%, minimizing greenhouse gases and our country’s dependence on imported crude oil, they can be assured that BAF Technologies is the most trusted in the industry.
BAF Technologies keeps the original Ford factory warranty intact and s the only CNG converter to achieve “3Q” Status with Ford:
• QCM – Qualified Calibration Modifier
• QVM - Qualified Vehicle Modifier
• QFC – Quality Fleet Care (All Vehicles are Covered Under)
BAF achieved ISO 9001 Certificate of Registration:
• Qualifies BAF Technologies as the only Designer, integrator, and service provider of compressed natural gas (CNG) systems for OEM vehicle applications.
Part of the reason BAF Technologies has been chosen by Ford is based on their track record of 20,000+ successful conversions with companies such as Verizon and AT&T and their dedication to providing the best experience for clients and Fleet Manager’s ready to make the transition from expensive gasoline and diesel vehicles to Ford NGV’s fueled by cleaner, less-expensive CNG.
BAF Technologies has Ship-Thru/Freight Re-entry and Drop-Ship Capabilities nationwide, which is made available through their extensive nationwide installation network.
BAF provides a transparent purchase experience to end users and helps keep shipping cost to a minimum. Vehicles are ordered through qualified Ford dealer’s with the “gaseous prep” option, which includes hardened valves and valve seats to work with “dry” CNG fuel.
BAF insures Ford backing their warranty on conversions and you can expect longer vehicle lifespan on all conversions. Vehicles are shipped directly to BAF in Dallas or one of their 10+ BAF-trained and certified up-fitters throughout the country. The result is a significant reduction on lead times.
BAF also provides nationwide coverage and this is available on all product lines they offer. For more information on converting your fleet to run on Ford CNG models, contact Michael K. Orgera at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (347) 782-1723.
