COSTA MESA, CA – August 16, 2018 – Agility Fuel Solutions, a leading global provider of clean fuel solutions for medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles, announced today that it has received California Air Resources Board (CARB) certifications for its first natural gas-powered engine.
The Agility 366NGTM, a General Motors 6.0L engine with an Agility natural gas fuel system, is certified to meet the CARB Optional Low NOx Emissions Standards and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Standards. In addition, Agility also received CARB Heavy-Duty On-Board Diagnostics (HD-OBD) certification with full compliance.
The certified engine is suited for school bus, walk-in van, cutaway chassis, cabover, terminal tractor, and medium-duty work truck applications in all 50 states. It is available to vehicle OEMs as a standalone engine or as a fuel system only and can be combined with Agility’s compressed natural gas storage solutions resulting in a complete end-to-end natural gas solution for Class 4-6 medium-duty vehicles.
“This certification demonstrates Agility’s capabilities to meet newer, more stringent engine certification requirements, including HD-OBD,” said Brad Garner, Agility’s President – Powertrain Systems. “In addition, because this engine is certified to the Optional Low NOx standard, fleets using this engine will qualify for a higher level of grant funding and rebates.”
