Volkswagen has completely overhauled its natural gas models and is equipping its Polo and Golf TGI with a third natural gas tank.

08 Feb 2019 | International News : Germany

This allows the Polo TGI
 to now travel up to 60km further in pure CNG mode than its predecessor. The gain in range in the Golf TGI is up to 80km. In the Golf, a new 1.5-litre TGI four-cylinder engine with 128bhp ensures that none of the driving pleasure is lost.

Driving with natural gas significantly reduces CO
2 emissions because the combustion of CNG generally produces less CO2. An even better CO2 balance can be achieved by fuelling with biomethane or e-gas. Biomethane is extracted from plant residues; e-gas is produced from surplus green energy (power-to-gas), which are added to the fuels.

Driving on natural gas is not only good for your wallet, it is also good for the environment. Compared to petrol or diesel, natural gas contains a significantly higher amount of energy and a lower carbon fraction. This means that driving in CNG mode produces around 25% fewer CO2 emissions than with petrol.
