The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has certified Landi Renzo's dedicated compressed natural gas (CNG) conversion of Ford's 2017 model year E-450 cutaway van, the vehicle modifier announced.
Landi Renzo has been producing a dedicated CNG version of the vehicle that's powered by a 6.8L V-10 heavy-duty engine (HLDRE06.8B10) since the 2014 model year under Ford's Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM) program. The modified vehicle retains its factory warrany.
Landi Renzo will now turn its attention toward gaining approval from the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to offer the vehicle to fleets in that state. Landi Renzo has established a ship-through partnership with Ford.
