Roughly , of the 12 million CNG vehicles worldwide are in the U.S., according to GE, including aftermarket conversions. The nation's only light-duty, factory-produced CNG vehicle in production, the Honda Civic Natural Gas, has been on the market since Though these vehicles are selling out faster than they are made and production is.

This is a list of natural gas vehicles. Volkswagen Caddy /Caddy Maxi Life EcoFuel CNG (MPV) man.   Bolivia’s natural gas vehicle fleet has grown with the acquisition of buses from Chinese manufacturer Xiamen King Long United Automotive Industry Company, Ltd (King Long). 61 ‘Puma Katari’ have been ordered by the city of El Alto and seater compressed natural gas (CNG) minibuses will be delivered to the neighbouring city of La Paz, Bolivia’s capital city. Natural Gas Vehicles Natural gas vehicles are getting a lot of attention these days. They may soon find a permanent place in our transportation system, because the nation is getting serious about reducing carbon emissions. Abundant domestic gas supplies are keeping prices affordable and reducing dependence on foreign oil.

  Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is a proven very safe, clean, abundant, domestic, affordable fuel source for cars that is currently used in o, vehicles world wide. Pakistan and Iran have about 5 million CNG vehicles on the road while America has less than , Why so few in the U.S. you may ask! By August , there were more than 24 million Natural Gas Vehicles (NGVs) operating worldwide. Natural gas can be used in all classes of vehicles – motorcycles, cars, vans, light and heavy duty trucks, buses, lift trucks, locomotives. Marine applications are increasing with applications such as tug boats, ferries, barges and ships using CNG. Switching to natural gas vehicles (NGV) can help improve air quality in our communities. With 70 percent of the oil consumed by the United States being imported, NGVs are considered a low-cost alternative fuel solution to petroleum-powered fleets. Texas Gas Service is the third largest natural gas distribution company in Texas, providing safe, clean and reliable natural gas to more than , customers in communities.

Hydrogen from natural gas reforming in hydrogen refueling stations and gasoline from crude oil are the two fuels. Vehicles converted to natural gas, up to March , represent 20% of the La Paz vehicle fleet, informed the executive director of the EEC-GNV, Alejandra Huaylla. “The consumption of this type of fuel has an economic benefit, because the price of CNG is 60% cheaper compared to gasoline, which means a direct saving for the beneficiary,” said. cars using renewable energy. A shift to gas would also create a risk of technology lock-in, diverting scarce (public) funds away from these technologies with the potential to decarbonise light-duty vehicles. Natural gas vehicles (NGV) emit less noxious emissions than diesel cars, notably nitrogen oxide NOx emissions. How Do Natural Gas Vehicles Work? Compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles operate much like gasoline-powered vehicles with spark-ignited internal combustion engines. The engine functions the same way as a gasoline engine. Natural gas is stored in a fuel tank, or cylinder, typically at the back of the vehicle.
