Foton 40-foot CNG bus reaches Altoona center

Posted on September 7, 2010

Last week, the Foton America 40-foot CNG low-floor transit bus arrived at the Altoona Bus Research and Testing Center at Pennsylvania State University, the company announced.

"This is a milestone for Foton America. We have been anticipating this day for a long time and are excited to get the next phase of the research and development of this bus for the North American market," stated Clifford C. Clare Jr., Foton's CEO.

As it enters the new model bus testing program, the vehicle will undergo rigorous performance evaluations in the areas of maintainability, reliability, safety, performance, structural integrity and durability, fuel economy, noise, emissions testing and brake testing.

Foton America's bus will emerge with a qualitative and comparative test report that can be provided to potential purchasers during the procurement process.
