Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide, Inc.’s 3-tank back-of-cab CNG module, launched mid-2015, is now available through the Ryder System, Inc. network. The Q-Cab product series offers Ryder customers the needed capacity in a single module and the benefit of weight reduction and fuel efficiency. The 3-tank CNG Module can either be configured as a Q-Cab160 (160 diesel gallon equivalent module) or Q-Cab180 (180 diesel gallon equivalent module).
Traditionally, the long haul market has been limited to diesel trucks due to CNG fuel systems limitations in supporting long range trucks at acceptable weights and capacity levels. Quantum’s light weight, high capacity CNG systems provide the necessary weight and capacity model that makes long haul with CNG possible. Many long haul trucking firms are now considering CNG as a viable and much lower cost transportation fuel; therefore, Quantum works with commercial fleet management companies such as Ryder to provide specialized vehicles for the transportation needs of each trucking firm.
“Ryder is now opening a new frontier in CNG for long haul trucking,” said Mr. Brian Olson, President and CEO of Quantum.
