Ford adds to industry leading natural gas vehicle lineup

As gas prices rise, Ford continues to offer customers more choices
for vehicles that operate on cleaner-burning natural gas. For the 2001 model
year, Ford has added a dedicated natural gas version of the popular E-450
Cutaway Econoline van to its lineup, which already includes the dedicated
natural gas Crown Victoria, F-Series and Econoline cargo van and club
wagon and bi-fuel Contour. Evolved from the “chop vans” of the 1960s, the
E-450 Cutaway is a conventional short-chassis-cab van produced without a
back panel for custom commercial applications. Popular uses for E-450
Cutaways include airport shuttles and parcel delivery vehicles. The sudden
increase in gasoline prices has intensified interest in natural gas and
alternative fuel vehicles, especially among fleet owners looking to meet EPA
and Federal Green Fleet vehicle requirements. New release, photos and
b-roll available.
