NGVA Europe has released its 2019 Natural Gas Vehicle Catalogue which includes comparable data and a comprehensive overview about 68 vehicles available on the European market. This comprises 23 passenger cars, 11 light commercial vehicles, 13 trucks and 21 buses for both private use and business. Together with general information, the catalogue also provides short information about environmental and fuel price benefits of the use of gas in transport.
“The 2019 catalogue confirms the major role of gas across the different segments of the European mobility market. Thanks to the realization of the circular economy model, CNG and LNG technology can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 95%, representing an important asset for our environment and domestic industry,” said Andrea Gerini, NGVA Europe Secretary General.
Today, over 1.4 million NGVs are driving on European roads. These vehicles are supported by a vast European network of 3,665 CNG and 214 LNG fueling stations. Both vehicle fleet and station network are constantly expanding across Europe.
CNG and LNG mainly consist of methane that is increasingly produced from renewable sources in the form of biomethane and synthetic natural gas. Natural and renewable methane can be mixed at any rate, thus driving a progressive and flexible switch to carbon neutrality.
