Xperion Alpha for AFV Volvos
Xperion Alpha is providing Type IV fuel cylinders for Volvo V70 cars converted to CNG on Volvo factory premises in Torslanda (Gothenburg) by Alternative Fuel Vehicles (www.afv.nu; Swedish language website). AFV’s technical project manager is Anders Johansson, former tech manager for bi-fuel models at Volvo Cars. Thomas Andersson is president and CEO.
Engine systems for the bi-fuel natural gas-gasoline Volvo cars are provided by Prins Autogassytemen, of The Netherlands.
Prins supplies its VSI-CNG vapor sequential injection kit, with a master-slave architecture making it compatible with the OEM car, including on-board diagnostics (OBD).
AFV prices its bi-fuel V70s at 319,900 Swedish kronor – approximately 33,400 euros or $40,700 U.S.
