Clean Energy: BAF certified as Ford vehicle modifier

Posted on February 1, 2011

Clean Energy Fuels Corp. subsidiary, BAF Technologies Inc., is now officially designated by the Ford Motor Co. as a Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM) for gaseous-fueled vehicles.

BAF's alternative fuel vehicle upfitting capabilities include aftermarket compressed natural gas (CNG) conversions of Ford-manufactured vans, cutaway shuttles, taxis, pick-ups and light-duty trucks.

To ensure that modified Ford vehicles meet strict vehicle warranty and QVM standards, the authorization program focuses on the aftermarket vendor's design, manufacturing and quality control processes.

In-depth evaluations by Ford include crash testing, demonstrated commitment to continuous quality improvement, and reviews of representative vehicles and customer support systems.

BAF Technologies is a provider of natural gas vehicle systems and conversions in the U.S. and supports clients with alternative fuel systems. Founded in 1992 and headquartered in Dallas, BAF was acquired by Clean Energy in October 2009.
