Alliance AutoGas contributed propane-powered vehicles to the Clean Cities Southeast AFV Demonstration Initiative (SADI) event in early November in Clinton, Tennessee.

For the demonstration, Alliance AutoGas provided a Ford Transit van, Ford F-150 and Ford Explorer Interceptor, all powered by propane autogas. Alliance AutoGas adds that the vehicles were test driven at the demonstration site and remained in Clinton for their county and municipal fleets to drive for one week.

The multi-state vehicle demonstration program showcased alternative fuel vehicles and offered driver education and marketing strategies. According to Alliance AutoGas, the SADI project focuses on nonexistent or under-utilized markets for compressed natural gas and propane in the transportation sector, targeting applications such as smaller delivery vehicles, state vehicles and commuter vehicles. SADI partnered with Alliance AutoGas, Icom North America, Mainstay Fuel Technologies and Penske for the event.

“Alliance AutoGas is excited about our relationship with [East Tennessee Clean Fuels Coalition] as we work closely with them on the SADI demonstration project,” says Tim Clark, Alliance AutoGas’ director of sales. “The efforts of Jonathan Overly and Melissa Goldberg of the coalition were key in getting our three Alliance AutoGas demonstration vehicles into the hands of fleet decision makers in east Tennessee.”
