LOUISVILLE, KY, March 19, 2013

LOUISVILLE, KY, March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Heavy-duty trucking customers
seeking optimal on-board fuel storage, high-performance natural gas engines,
and reliable fueling can benefit from a new joint marketing program by
Westport Innovations Inc. (TSX:WPT/NASDAQ:WPRT) and Clean Energy Fuels Corp.
(NASDAQ:CLNE) that was announced today in Louisville, Kentucky, home of the
Mid-America Truck Show (MATS).

To encourage the use of natural gas vehicles and the establishment of the
growing fueling infrastructure across North America, the companies will bundle
the Westport™ LNG Tank System - optimized for use with the Cummins Westport
ISL G or the new Cummins Westport ISX12 G engines - and a long-term fuel
contract with Clean Energy into a package for qualified customers.

The program is designed to achieve the following goals:

           Deliver an attractive payback for truck customers utilizing the
•          Cummins Wesport ISL G or ISX12 G engine with a Westport LNG Tank
           System
•          Establish availability of long-term refueling contracts at a
           savings to diesel for Clean Energy customers
           Establish a strong market for natural gas trucks with additional
•          conveniently located liquefied natural gas (LNG) fueling stations
           for customers

"We know that customers are looking for efficient solutions that will allow
them to take advantage of the long term savings and environmental benefits
that natural gas will bring for their fleets," said James Harger, Chief
Marketing Officer, Clean Energy.  "Collectively, we can help get them on the
road quickly and economically, while building out America's Natural Gas
Highway®."

Clean Energy has already completed 70 natural gas fueling stations as part of
America's Natural Gas Highway®, which will allow long-haul trucks to travel
across all major corridors through the United States, and has more stations in
development.

The Westport LNG Tank System is currently available in limited quantities for
customer trials, and can be ordered now with commercial quantities available
in September 2013. It operates on either cold or warm LNG and is expected to
provide customers with the ability to fuel even the largest spark-ignited
engines on a single or dual 120 gallon tank, and deliver extended range and
hold times while operating on cold LNG. Attendees to MATS are invited to view
the Westport LNG Tank System which will be on display at the Clean Energy
booth.

"The interest and demand is high for both the new Westport LNG Tank System and
the Cummins Westport ISX12 G," said Steve Anderson, Vice President Business
Development, Westport. "This collaborative program allows us to give customers
a good opportunity to invest in the most advanced natural gas engine and fuel
storage technology."
