Quantum Receives $1.4 Million In Orders From Two New Customers For Q-Liteâ¿¢ Fully-Integrated Natural Gas Storage Systems

LAKE FOREST, Calif., May 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ: QTWW), a global leader in natural gas storage systems, integration and vehicle system technologies, today announced that it has received $1.4 million in purchase orders from two new customers for its industry-leading Q-Lite CNG tanks, and fully integrated, factory-tested bolt-on natural gas fuel storage systems. One of these new customers is a nationwide network of truck integrators, who is building up one stop shop capability to convert aftermarket diesel truck fleets to run on clean-burning natural gas.
