Westport and Tata to develop new light- and medium-duty natural gas engines

30 October 2012

Westport Innovations Inc. announced an agreement with Tata Motors to develop an engine for light- and medium-duty trucks and buses. Details of the combustion technology are being withheld for competitive reasons, the company said.

Westport is developing a next generation engine technology for integration into a new engine platform with Tata Motors. This is a great opportunity to work with India’s largest engine manufacturer in a fast-growing marketplace demanding cost effective and environmentally conscious solutions. Our development schedule is accelerated and we believe it can be accomplished given the substantive market size and interest in natural gas vehicles in India.

—Nicholas Sonntag, Executive Vice President, Westport Innovations

Upon successful completion of the development phase, commercialization is expected to follow, with Westport supplying key natural gas engine components based on the proprietary technology being developed in this program.
