Offers An Array of Alt Fuel Options to Fleet Managers
First Priority GreenFleet made its ACT Expo debut last week, announcing a new alliance with Icom North America for gaseous fuel vehicles.
New Jersey-based GreenFleet is a unit of First Priority Global, which earlier this year purchased the assets of Electric Vehicles International in Stockton, Calif. (F&F, March 8), and said the acquisition would help the company position itself as a “one stop shop” for advanced vehicle solutions – more than just EVs.
“Under the GreenFleet banner, we intend to offer our customers a full range of zero- and low-emission options that will allow them to select the products that best fit their needs,” said First Priority GreenFleet CEO Alex Cherepakov.
Icom North America, best known for its JTG II liquid injection and related propane autogas systems (the company has some 600 certifications), has itself broadened its scope. Icom last year formed Green Bridge Technologies to market CNG vehicles developed by Crazy Diamond Performance. CDP is one of the only options for natural gas versions of such compact GM vehicle as the Chevy Cruze.
GreenFleet’s ACT Expo display reflects its growing reach. In addition to an EVI battery truck, it includes a CNG-fueled Chevy Cruze by GBT-Crazy Diamond, a Chevy Silverado 3500 pickup with an Icom liquid injection propane-gasoline bi-fuel system, and an all-battery, zero-emissions eLion school bus with 100-mile range.
The standout EVI customer is UPS, which began taking delivery from EVI, in 2012, of 100% battery-electric, Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp-base vehicles, with UQM drivelines and lithium iron phosphate batteries from Valence Technology. Other EVI customers include Frito-Lay and the Pacific Gas & Electric utility.
GreenFleet is partnering with EV Connect for electric vehicle charging.
Icom North America’s ACT Expo display featured a propane-gasoline bi-fuel Ford Explorer with 3.5-liter Ecoboost engine.
