Penske Truck Leasing Orders 100 CNG Tractors


Penske Truck Leasing has ordered 100 compressed natural gas (CNG) Freightliner Cascadia tractors equipped with Cummins Westport 12-liter engines.

The company says the CNG-powered tractors will be used by its full-service truck leasing and commercial truck rental customers at various locations across the U.S. Before the year's end, Penske Truck Leasing estimates it will have more than 200 natural gas tractors within its fleet.

‘Many full-service truck leasing customers continue to evaluate using natural gas vehicles (NGVs) within their truck fleets while others are quickly adopting the use of NGVs to meet their sustainability goals,’ comments Art Vallely, Penske Truck Leasing's executive vice president of operations. “We're encouraged by the interest we are seeing from customers with regard to NGVs, and we are fully capable of assisting any fleet with their natural gas powered truck needs.”
