According to local media reports, vehicles to be converted through authorized dealers will have a factory warranty of 1 year or 100,000 km run for both car and CNG kit. The installation of the system must be requested by the sales manager, who will redirect the vehicle to one of the authorized workshops specialized in conversion to natural gas supplying kits approved by Renault.
The new Renault Express Taxi will be available across the brand’s dealer network, which has 111 showrooms nationwide.
Hyundai is another company offering CNG-powered taxis for public transport service in Colombia. The automaker has recently partnered with Gas Natural Fenosa and Ecopetrol to encourage this market. It is noteworthy that the International Conference and Exhibition on Natural Gas Vehicles –NGV2013 Colombia– will take place in Cartagena in November and is set to be the most important event of the sector in Latin America this year.
