Clean Cities Publishes Guide to Heavy-Duty Vehicles That Run on Alternative Fuels
September 5, 2013
Today's fleets are increasingly interested in vehicles that use alternative fuels or advanced technologies to help reduce operating costs, meet emissions requirements, improve fleet sustainability, and support U.S. energy independence. The newly published Clean Cities Guide to Alternative Fuel and Advanced Medium- and Heavy-Duty Vehicles helps fleet managers explore the wide range of options currently available in the market.
This guide provides an extensive list of vehicles, engines, motors, and other propulsion systems that run on propane, natural gas, ethanol blends, biodiesel, electricity, and hydrogen. It also includes information on hybrid systems that increase fuel efficiency. Vehicle applications covered in the guide include school buses, shuttle buses, transit buses, refuse trucks, tractors, vans, and vocational trucks.
