Westport WiNG™ Power System on Ford F-Series Soon Available in Canada 
~ Windsor Integration Centre to Serve Canadian Market ~ 
VANCOUVER, March 19, 2013 /CNW/ - Westport Innovations Inc. (TSX:WPT) / 
(NASDAQ:WPRT), the global leader in natural gas engines, today announced that 
the Ford F-Series Super Duty trucks with the Westport WiNG™ Power System 
will soon be available to Canadian customers. To serve the Canadian market, 
Westport is opening an integration centre in Windsor, Ontario with trucks 
expected to be ready for delivery to customers by late June 2013. 
Westport's Windsor Integration Centre (WWIC) is a dedicated Ford ship-through 
plant about 52 kilometers (about 40 minutes) away from Westport's automotive 
engineering hub in Plymouth, Michigan. Built at Ford's Kentucky Truck Plant, 
the F-Series Super Duty trucks will be shipped to the 20,000 square feet WWIC 
for installation of the bi-fuel compressed natural gas (CNG) and gasoline 
Westport WiNG Power System. Once installed, trucks will be shipped to 
customers using Ford's single-ship through transportation system, offering 
customers efficiencies and cost savings in vehicle delivery. 
"As a Vancouver-based company, we're excited that we can now make our Westport 
WiNG Power System products available in Westport's home market," said Ian 
Scott, Executive Vice President, Westport. "Canadian customers can now enjoy 
the economic benefits of fleets that use a cleaner, domestic fuel that our 
U.S. customers have been enjoying since the Westport system was introduced in 
March 2012." 
"Westport's product entry into the Canadian market demonstrates an increasing 
awareness of the tremendous potential of natural gas transportation 
technologies to reduce carbon emissions and contribute to Canada's economic 
prosperity," added Alicia Milner, President of Canadian Natural Gas Vehicle 
Alliance (CNGVA). "With Westport's bi-fuel trucks now available in Canada, 
fleets will have an increasing selection of natural gas vehicles to choose 
from that reduce their operating costs and lower fleet emissions." 
Starting April 1, customers are expected to be able to order the Ford F-250 
through F-550 Super Duty trucks equipped with either the 6.2-litre V8 or 
6.8-litre V10 gasoline engines for use with the Westport WiNG Power System at 
Westport authorized Ford dealerships throughout Canada. 
The trucks delivered to Canadian customers will undergo the same rigorous 
safety and durability testing required for all Ford original equipment 
manufacturer (OEM) products. As a Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM), the 
Ford vehicle and powertrain warranty remain intact, and the Westport system is 
under full warranty through Westport with servicing performed through Westport 
authorized Ford dealerships. The Westport-powered Ford Super Duty trucks are 
designed to have a range of between 320 and 525 km on CNG alone subject to 
tank size, plus an additional 700 km on gasoline with payback expected in 
about two to three years, depending on distance driven. 
Westport WiNG Power System meets all Canadian provincial and federal safety 
standards and has received Transport Canada approval to affix the National 
Safety Mark (NSM) to its vehicles offered for sale in Canada.
