READING, Pa. — Penske Truck Leasing has ordered 100 compressed natural gas Freightliner Cascadia tractors equipped with Cummins Westport 12-litre engines. Officials say the natural gas tractors will be used by Penske’s full-service truck leasing and commercial truck rental customers at various locations across the US.

“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,” said Art Vallely, Penske’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.”

Penske officials estimate that before the year’s end the company will have more than 200 natural gas tractors within its fleet.
