LAKE FOREST, Calif., Nov. 30, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ:QTWW), a global leader in natural gas storage systems, integration and vehicle system technologies, announced today that it delivered its industry leading Q-Cab160 back-of-cab CNG storage system to a truck OEM for installation on a natural gas-powered tractor to be installed at the OEM's Truck Mod center.
