At the same time, he said that the project also involves Central and South American regions for export.
Regarding the CNG-powered truck already unveiled, Hernández Kim said that several vehicles of this model will be tested in four delivery companies. Hyundai agrees to fund the installation of a refuelling station on the premises of each company that decides to acquire more than 30 of these trucks.
The Department of Energy estimates that there will be about 20 CNG stations and over 15,000 vehicles upgraded to use natural gas in Mexico by 2017.
Moreover, the Korean manufacturer provided 30 natural gas driven buses for the Federal District public transport service. The fleet is expected to expand itself up to 250 units.
