The first statement given by the new Peruvian president to citizens reflects the current expansion of NGV market in the country. On the one hand, there are plans to implement natural gas powered buses in both north (Piura) and south (Arequipa) regions, in addition to the vehicles already plying across the Lima’s Metropolitan corridor and the inter-provincial transport service.
Moreover, the CNG supply route continues its expansion and reaches new areas, such as the city of Ica and the north region (Gascop’s initiatives). It is noteworthy that a new stations network was launched in mid April.
