Audi demonstrates through its g-tron fleet how sporty driving can be combined with efficiency, environmental friendliness and fuel economy. The brand with the Four Rings is now making a particularly sustainable offer: it is to supply climate-friendly Audi e-gas to its customers as standard for three years, to power the A4 Avant g-tron, A5 Sportback g-tron and A3 Sportback g-tron models. The two new models A4 Avant g-tron and A5 Sportback g-tron are currently being exhibited at the IAA in Frankfurt.
“Our g-tron fleet enables us to fill the gap in climate-friendly long-distance mobility,” explained Martin Sander, Germany Sales Director of AUDI AG. “The high range, rapid refueling times and good fuel economy are huge advantages particularly for frequent drivers.”
Compared directly to a gasoline engine in the same performance category, the fuel costs are markedly lower at around four euros per 100 kilometers. In addition to lower fuel costs, the customer will reap the benefits of lower motor vehicle tax thanks to the lower CO2 emissions. The tank module, which consists of four gas tanks with a total capacity of 19 kilograms and a 25-liter gasoline tank, allows for a range of up to 500 kilometers when the cars are running in pure CNG mode. The overall range can reach up to 950 kilometers.
Furthermore both cars are especially eco-friendly: when running on gas and with S tronic, CO2 emissions amount to 102 grams per kilometer, almost one-fifth lower than when running on gasoline. The figure even increases if the green fuel Audi e-gas is used: the Audi g-tron models even cut CO2 emissions by 80% compared to a gasoline model in the same performance category.
As standard, Audi will supply Audi e-gas for three years to all customers who order the A3 Sportback g-tron, A4 Avant g-tron or A5 Sportback g-tron by May 31, 2018. The customer can then refuel their g-tron model at any CNG station but only pays the standard natural gas price.
