Dallas-based NGV Global Group, a manufacturing and logistics company that uses advanced natural gas technology to reduce carbon emissions, has developed a line of F-650s that operate on compressed natural gas (CNG) and renewable natural gas (RNG).
The 7.3L CNG/RNG F-650 box truck with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) up to 25,999 lbs. is configured to maximize load volume without requiring a commercial driver’s license. With escalating diesel prices and a nationwide shortage of CDL truck drivers, the F-650 offers a solution to meet a variety of commercial transportation and environmental needs, noted the company in a news release.
NGV Global Group has integrated Wing Power Systems technology and has worked with them to ensure the F-650 is Ford Q185 calibration and EPA certified.
Fully configured and delivered ready-to-operate, this Class 6 truck provides a market-ready solution with a CNG upfit, a 26-ft. box, and a 3,300-lb. lift gate. NGV Global Group has already integrated the new F-650 into its own fleet through its subsidiary, GreenPath Logistics, which operates exclusively alternative-fuel vehicles.
Additionally, through strategic partnerships, the F-650, which has a 500-mile range, can offer on-site fueling options, cost reduction guarantees, or upfront price subsidies. On the horizon, customers will also have the opportunity to explore grant money through a variety of environmentally focused programs.
