Calgary, Alberta – A Calgary company is working with an Indian automaker to develop a compressed natural gas (CNG) version of a three-wheeled commercial delivery vehicle for the Indian market.

Alternative Fuel Systems (AFS) of Calgary and its Indian partner Advantek Fuel Systems is working with Bajaj Auto, the world’s fourth-largest manufacturer of two- and three-wheeled commercial vehicles.

The Bajaj brand is well-known in several countries in Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, and South and Southeast Asia.

“Bajaj has sent a prototype vehicle to AFS in Calgary for testing,” said Jim Perry, president and CEO of AFS. “This vehicle is designed for use within major cities in India, where air pollution is a very serious problem. By running on CNG, using latest-generation AFS technology, these goods carriers are expected to produce significantly less harmful emissions while offering better performance and fuel efficiency.”
