Quantum Supplies Ford With Hydrogen Fuel Injection Systems for E450 Hydrogen Shuttle Buses

January 30, 2007

IRVINE, CA – Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide, Inc., is supplying hydrogen fuel injectors to Ford Motor Company for its hydrogen internal combustion engine (HICE)-powered shuttle bus program, including the three vehicles delivered Dec. 7, to Parliament Hill in Ottawa, Canada, for a pilot project that will test the vehicles in real-life conditions. The three buses to be used in Ottawa are part of a larger group of 20 shuttle buses that will be demonstrated across the United States and Canada. These units form a pre-commercial evaluation of Ford’s HICE technology under real-world conditions that will help Ford assess the viability of commercially offering vehicles equipped with hydrogen internal combustion engines. Three Ford shuttle buses equipped with advanced hydrogen internal combustion engines (HICE) will be included in the Senate shuttle bus fleet on Parliament Hill. The shuttle buses transport parliamentarians and staff between buildings of the Parliamentary Precinct. The hydrogen buses will replace existing gasoline-powered shuttle buses and, in doing so, will reduce engine-related emissions to near-zero levels.
