About Westport HPDI 2.0
HPDI 2.0 continues to be the only natural gas system that can offer “same as diesel” horsepower, torque, transient response, engine braking power and fuel economy. It also provides up to 20% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions compared to equivalent diesel engines, making it far and away the best commercial option for heavy-duty trucking customers seeking to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.
