Surtigas presented in Cartagena the Dongfeng sx5 SUV. With a Mitsubishi 1.6 DOCH engine, front airbags, a 451-liter trunk and 16-inch wheels, this innovative vehicle contributes to sustainable mobility by running only on natural gas, which reduces CO2 emissions by up to 30% and the emission of polluting particulate matter by 90%, compared to gasoline and diesel vehicles.
In addition to being a great ally of the environment, the Dongfeng sx5 represents, for those who operate it, several economic benefits: up to 38% savings in money compared to other fuels, 25% discount on income taxes and exclusion of VAT (19%) at the time of purchase.
There are currently 39 active CNG service stations in the departments of Bolívar, Sucre and Córdoba and more than 4,000 dedicated CNG vehicles, most belonging to the cargo and transport sector. This increasingly consolidates natural gas as a reliable fuel to drive mobility and development in the country.
With this new proposal for private vehicles 100% powered by natural gas, Surtigas seeks to reinforce its commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals through the use of clean fuels in private transport.
