DALLAS, TX – Westport Innovations Inc. (TSX:WPT/NASDAQ:WPRT), engineering the world's most advanced natural gas engines and vehicles, announced today plans to offer 2016 Ford F-150 trucks for use with the compressed natural gas (CNG) Westport WiNG™ Power System, and certify to EPA and CARB standards. The first 2016 F-150 featuring the Westport WiNG™ Power System will be unveiled today at the Alternative Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo in Dallas, Texas, and is expected to be available for order this summer.

The vehicle will be on display in the Ford booth at ACT Expo from May 5 to 7.

As one of Ford's largest qualified vehicle modifiers, Westport is offering the 2016 Ford F-150 as a dedicated or bi-fuel CNG Westport WiNG™ Power System vehicle. Designed to transport passengers and cargo, the 2016 Ford F-150 offers a 5.0-liter gaseous prep engine with improved emissions compared to gasoline.

Dedicated and bi-fuel options will give fleets more fuel flexibility. The 2016 F-150 will be a smart choice for those wanting the advantages of a pickup truck that is lighter than previous-generation F-150s. The new aluminum alloy body introduced on the 2015 F-150 reduces the weight of the truck by as much as 700 lbs.

"The F-150 with the 5.0 liter engine is a significant fleet vehicle, as fleets prefer its size, fuel economy and price. This will create a tremendous opportunity for fleets that previously had purchased heavy-duty pickups, but really preferred the benefits of light-duty trucks," said Paul Shaffer, Vice President Westport Dallas.

The Ford F-150 pickup truck is available with a 17 gasoline gallon equivalent (GGE) or 23 GGE tank. Westport engineers are currently evaluating underbody tank options as well. The existing Ford OEM warranty remains intact.
