Autocar® has historically produced the
highest volume of natural gas-powered
vehicles in U.S. Class 8 truck markets, approximately 30% of our total production volumes, so we know natural gas power at Autocar! We have expanded this experience into new CNG and LNG applications by
partnering with SoCal Gas, Cal Cartage drayage trucking company, LAF truck distributor and Neandross and
Associates. This team has developed
and delivered the first five CNG powered drayage tractors to the Los Angeles Port area. Our low-cab-forward (LCF) Autocar Xpeditor® was modified for use with a five-tank CNG fuel system, an appropriate wheelbase and a fifth-wheel tractor package. The resulting natural gas truck offers distance capabilities similar to those provided by diesel trucks. The ribbon-cutting ceremony for the first-of-its-kind CNG-powered Autocar Xpeditor.
