Schwan’s Home Service to deploy 600 ROUSH CleanTech propane vehicles by year’s end
03 May 2018
Schwan’s Home Service, Inc., which will begin deploying 200 ROUSH CleanTech E-450 propane autogas cutaways, plans to lease an additional 400 units by the end of 2018, totaling 600 vehicles.
Propane-powered vehicles have played a key role in Schwan’s product delivery for more than 40 years. Total costs of ownership for propane autogas is much lower than traditional fuels and other alternative technologies, which is why we are continually implementing the newest propane technology.—Danielle Stariha, senior manager of fleet and procurement for Schwan’s Home Service
Schwan’s Home Service, which has one of the larger privately held fleets in the United States, will take delivery of its first 200 Ford E-450 cutaway vehicles this month. Each frozen food delivery truck is equipped with a Ford 6.8L V10 engine and a ROUSH CleanTech propane autogas fuel system.
Each Ford E-450 propane autogas truck emits about 91,000 fewer pounds of carbon dioxide emissions over its lifetime than a gasoline-powered vehicle. Propane autogas is a lower carbon fuel that reduces greenhouse gases by up to 25%, carbon monoxide by up to 60%, and NOx by 20% compared to gasoline.
Why isn't autogas popular in the US?
It's common in Europe.
