- Up to 20% more power than diesel.

- As much as 18% more torque than diesel.

- Near zero CO2 emissions.

- It preserves existing diesel engine architecture.

- It preserves existing engine manufacturing infrastructure and investment

“We unveil today to the European audience a new CO2 reduction solution for heavy-duty transport,” said David Johnson, CEO, Westport Fuel Systems. “Westport’s H2 HPDI fuel system powering an internal combustion engine turns innovation into answers, creating sustainability we are very proud of.

“We like to think of it as a game changer without the change. Our technology achieves better performance than diesel engines, with near zero CO2 emissions, all while utilizing existing manufacturing capital investment and infrastructure.”
