~ New Offering Increases Ford QVM Product Portfolio ~

VANCOUVER, Aug. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Westport Innovations Inc. (TSX:WPT /
NASDAQ:WPRT), engineering the world's most advanced natural gas engines and
systems,  today announced it will offer the newly launched natural gas powered
Ford F-150 featuring the Westport WiNG™ Power System in both the United States
and Canada.

"Our customers have been anticipating the availability of a natural gas
version of Ford's flagship pick-up truck, and as we believe Westport has the
largest portfolio of Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM) products, this will
give us even greater options for fleets and consumers," said John Lapetz, Vice
President, Westport. "Ford has recognized the market demand and responded by
adding one of its most popular models to the natural gas line-up."

Westport expects to begin deliveries in the first quarter of 2014, applying
its leading quality testing and manufacturing processes. Ford offers the base
vehicle with a factory-installed, gaseous-fuel prep package that includes
hardened valves, valve seats, pistons and rings allowing it to operate on
either natural gas or gasoline. The Westport WiNG powered Ford F-150 will
offer customers a range of options to meet their needs, in a variety of cab,
bed and driveline configurations.

In June, Westport acquired BAF Technologies, Inc. and its subsidiary ServoTech
Engineering, Inc., securing its position as Ford's largest partner under the
QVM program with over 10 products and approximately 150 Ford authorized
dealerships.

Pricing and details on how to order Westport WiNG powered F-150 trucks will be
available in September. For more information about Westport's line up of
