Kent, WA (PRWEB) May 01, 2014
World CNG announced today that it will be debuting its latest product, A CARB certified compressed natural gas RAM Promaster van at ACT EXPO in Long Beach, CA next week. The CARB certification will cover all RAM Promaster models with the 3.6L Pentastar engines converted to dedicated CNG with World CNG’s conversion system, featuring direct reprogramming of the factory engine control unit.
"We are excited to expand our product offerings for Chrysler Corp. vehicles including the Promaster, after our success with our EPA certified Chrysler minivans,” said Garret Alpers, CEO of World CNG. “The Promaster features the same 3.6L V6 engine which has already been proven reliable in livery minivan fleets, many of which are approaching 100,000 miles. The Promaster is an ideal application of our technology, and it fills a big gap in the cargo and passenger van market.”
The World CNG conversion for the Promaster with the Pentastar 3.6 liter engine is offered in a dedicated CNG model with multiple tank configurations up to 32 GGE and 400 miles of range. In addition the company has already developed tank configurations with leading Promaster upfitters for commercial cargo / work vans and commercial transportation applications. World CNG offers a 3 year / 100,000 mile warranty which covers all parts included in the CNG conversion system as well as labor. The company continues to rapidly grow its sales and service network nationally.
“Our technical team has really enjoyed adapting our Pentastar conversion system to the Promaster,” continued Alpers. “Its a unique vehicle due to its front wheel drive configuration, cargo / payload capacity, industry leading low 17” entry height, extended wheel base and high roof options, and fuel efficiency. Our seamlessly integrated engine system with proprietary reflash of the factory vehicle computer, maintains every ounce of the gasoline vehicle’s 280 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.”
World CNG will be displaying the Cargo version of the 159” extended wheelbase, high roof, Promaster 3500 in the Long Beach, CA convention center, May 5-8th for the Alternative Clean Transportation Expo. The company has begun taking orders for conversions to 2014 Promasters for delivery in late summer. The manufacturer factory order cut-off for 2014 RAM Promaster is currently June 13, 2014.
In addition, World CNG plans to extend its 2014 Promaster CARB certification to the 2015 model as well as “in-use” vehicles. Promasters are able to be converted in any of World CNG’s 5 locations. For more information, call 206-938-7812 or email sales(at)worldcng(dot)com.
