Landi Renzo and Leggett & Platt to partner on CNG vehicles for North American Market

Landi Renzo USA (Landi Renzo) has partnered with Leggett & Platt Commercial Vehicle Products (L&P CVP) to implement alternative fuel systems using compressed natural gas (CNG). Landi Renzo is a global leader in alternative fuel systems design, manufacture, installation and service with more than 40% global market share.

L&P CVP, along with Landi Renzo, is displaying a Ford E250 commercial van upfit with a dedicated CNG alternative fuel system at the 2011 Green Truck Summit and Work Truck Show in Indianapolis.

As a Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM) of Ford vehicles, L&P CVP will install Landi Renzo’s CNG fuel system at its Ford ship-thru facility in Elyria, Ohio and will offer three and four tank options for installation on Ford’s E-250 and E-350 Cargo and Passenger Vans.

The 21 and 27 gasoline-gallon-equivalent tanks are part of a system that complies with the Federal Motor Vehicles Safety Standards and Regulations,is certified by the EPA, and is 50-state compliant through the California Air Resources Board. The L&P CVP/Landi Renzo CNG conversion system allows NGVs to perform just like gasoline vehicles, can be serviced by local dealers, and will be backed by a warranty.
