GM Signs Pact with Quantum for 2006-Model CNG Full-Size Pickups

February 1, 2005

IRVINE, CA — Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide, Inc. announced a contract with General Motors Corporation to develop and produce natural gas fuel systems for GM's Model Year 2006 full-size pickup trucks. According to the Quantum release, the company will provide the engineering effort to accommodate the model year changes for the fuel system on the Sierra and Silverado models. Quantum will also produce the alternative fuel systems and provide the specialty vehicle assembly of the fuel systems into the new trucks. In addition to integrating roughly 250 components into the vehicle, Quantum will also be responsible for the powertrain and systems engineering. This will ensure that the system is optimized for performance, durability, safety and emission compliance over the life of the vehicle, and extends to the vehicles being validated through a wide range of operating extremes including hot weather, cold weather, high altitude, and crash testing prior to going into production.
