Orders can now be placed for the new SEAT Ibiza, with a 1.0 TGI bi-fuel (natural gas/gasoline) engine, which has the ECO label of the General Directorate of Transport and its consequent advantages. This model has a consumption of 3.3 kg/100 km in CNG mode or, which is the same, needs an investment of only 2.81 euros to travel 100 km (average CNG price: €0.85/kg); while the 1.0 TSI petrol Ibiza counterpart needs an investment of 6.46 euros per 100 km, with its average low consumption of 4.7 l/100 km (average petrol price: €1.37/liter).
The TGI version of the Ibiza fifth generation is equipped with two tanks, one of CNG (13 kg) and another of gasoline (40 liters), identical to the one in gasoline versions. The total drive range, combining both tanks, is 1,320 kilometers without refueling. The SEAT Ibiza TGI always uses CNG as the main and preferred fuel. Once it is exhausted, it switches to gasoline as an alternative fuel source: the switch takes place in an automated way and the driver does not notice any difference in the performance or dynamic driving of the vehicle.
Its 1.0 TGI three-cylinder and 12-valve engine features a 5-speed manual transmission. It offers a maximum power of 90 HP between 4,500 and 5,800 rpm and a maximum torque of 160 Nm between a regime of 1,900 and 3,500 rpm. In terms of performance, the Ibiza TGI reaches a maximum speed of 180 km/h, with an average consumption of 5 lt/100 km in gasoline mode and 4, 9 m3/100 km in CNG mode and emits 114 g/km of CO2 when using gasoline and only 88 g/km of CO2 with CNG.
Moreover, SEAT offers great discounts for the acquisition of the Ibiza TGI, as well as the rest of the NGV range offered by the manufacturer (Mii, 5-door and ST Leon and, very soon, the new urban SUV Arona). In addition to the SEAT discounts, the Ministry of Energy, Tourism and Digital Agenda also launched the new MOVALT Plan to encourage the purchase of alternative and clean energy vehicles. With all the discounts applied (including the € 2,500 from the MOVALT plan), the Ibiza TGI is priced below the TSI petrol range.
