So far 2012, the activity peak was registered in May
During the first half of the year, at least 67,500 vehicles converted in Argentina
According to the latest statistics provided by the The CNG Management of the National Gas Regulatory Agency (Enargas, as its Spanish acronym), 67,584 were switched to run on natural gas over the first six months of the year (this figure is still provisional since June records are uncompleted), whereas 60,789 vehicles were converted in the first half of 2011, representing a 11% increase in the number of kits installed.
In five of the six months elapsed in 2012 the number of conversions exceeded 10,000 units, with the exception of February, because this is the month in which, historically, the lowest level of activity is registered in terms of conversions across Argentina. However, the 2012 monthly average of kits installation totals 11,264, very close to the successful mark reached in last year’s monthly average (11,712).
In May 2012, 13,084 vehicles were converted to CNG, whereas 11,376 cars were fitted over the same month of 2011, representing an increase of 15% in the activity.
To understand more clearly the conversion curve during this year, these are the figures so far: January 10,033; February 8,301; March 12,535; April 11,606; May 13,084; June 12,025 (provisional number).
By June 2012, the historically accumulated CNG conversions in Argentina have reached a total of 2,135,132 vehicles, 315,000 of which have been registered over the period 2010-2012.
