Promises Extended-Range Hybrid Fueled by Natural Gas or Propane
As the 8.0-Liter Variant Is CARB-Certified for Both CNG and Propane

A new G-series line of CNG- or propane autogas-powered, cab-forward trucks from Southern California’s Greenkraft was unveiled by Superior Transportation Solutions, Greenkraft’s exclusive distributor for Texas, at last month’s ACT Expo 2015 in Dallas.

Austin-based Superior Transportation Solutions, Greenkraft’s exclusive distributor for Texas, showed this unique demonstrator vehicle with gasoline, propane autogas and CNG fuel systems – effectively a tri-fuel vehicle – at ACT Expo 2015 last month in Dallas.

The cab-forward trucks, built on JAC chassis from China with all-American drivelines installed in Southern California, are now available with 6.0- or 8.0-liter GM engines, with compressed natural gas fuel capacities ranging from 20 to 60 GGEs.

GM’s 6.0-liter engine powers Greenkraft trucks up to 17,500-pound GVW with 6-speed GM transmission – or up to 19,500-pound GVW with Allison transmission. GM’s 8.0-liter engine powers the firm’s 26,001- to 33,000-pound GVW vehicles, also with Allison transmission.

The 8.0-liter variant was just certified by the California Air Resources Board for both CNG and propane, says Greenkraft sales VP Frank Ziegler.

The California Energy Commission has funding for 34 of the 8.0-liter trucks – $26,000 per unit, Ziegler told F&F.

A three-year/36,000-mile warranty is standard with optional warranty coverage available through the Premium 2000 dealer network, STS notes.

Greenkraft is also preparing a plug-in hybrid electric offering with propane autogas or CNG for range extension. It’s being developed with California Energy Commission support in league with EDI – Efficient Drivetrains, Inc. (F&F, October 28, 2014)
