In Mexico, the NGV market is still incipient. There are 3,000 vehicles that have been converted to the system, whereas there are six CNG refueling stations, concentrated in Mexico City and Monterrey, although Morelia’s first filling point has been recently opened as well.
According to local media reports, Sánchez stated: “It is important to start building a CNG usage culture, whether through the acquisition of factory-built NGVs or the conversion of the existing fleets. Worldwide experiences show that natural gas is an interesting alternative for transport, due to their safety, low pollution levels and, especially, for its good price.” euroescortbabes
Meanwhile, Humann Adame stated: “If 500,000 taxis were converted to CNG (with an average consumption of 20 liters on a daily commute of 200 kilometers), there would be approximately three billion gallons of gasoline consumption replaced a year. This alternative would not only enable a major improvement in city’s air quality but also generate a total of 750-900 million dollars in savings to the nation.”
