Since 2009, Volvo dealers in Sweden have offered a bi-fuel 231-hp 2.5 litre turbocharged version of the popular V70 wagon, with AFV’s CNG fuel system, which has been approved as a company car for Swedish businesses. In addition to emissions benefits, corporate and private customers are eligible for tax incentives that make natural gas an even more economical alternative.
“We have seen steadily growing demand in Sweden, particularly from corporate and fleet customers. As fuelling infrastructure continues to expand and more automakers offer natural gas options, we expect to see that trend to continue across Europe,” added Scott.
