The word

Chevrolet Express G2500

The model year 2011 certification comes from the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for the two dedicated CNG alternatives NaturalDrive offers for General Motors' full-sized vans: the Chevy Express (pictured) and the GMC Savana.

The vans that can be converted include the 8,600 to 9,900 gross vehicle weight (GVWR) cargo vans GM offers, including the 135" wheelbase cargo vans most popular amongst GM's fleet customers.

NaturalDrive offers the conversions for dealerships as GM's only authorized from-the-factory conversion specialist in California, giving complete warranty coverage after the conversion.

And so ...

CNG is still remaining popular amongst fleet buyers for its high efficiency, available infrastructure, and relative low cost for the eco-advantages it gives.
