What is a natural gas car?

A compressed natural gas (CNG) car is a car with a combustion engine where the natural gas can be used as fuel. Natural gas is a naturally occurring fossil fuel and consists mainly of methane. Depending on the other components, some of which are toxic or non-flammable, the gas must first be processed before it can be used as a fuel. Compressed natural gas, known as CNG, can then be used as an alternative fuel in gasoline engines, i.e. internal combustion engines with positive ignition, as a substitute for gasoline. Hydrogen can be added proportionally to the natural gas.

For the combustion of natural gas, the engines must be adapted mechanically and electronically. In a vehicle, the CNG is stored in gaseous form in a pressure tank at a pressure of 200 bar. Cars with a natural gas system still have a petrol tank and can use both fuels for propulsion. The CNG is refuelled in a similar way to conventional fuels at the filling stations that offer it. Some car manufacturers offer new cars with a CNG system ex works. In addition, it is also possible to retrofit suitable used cars with a petrol engine with a natural gas system.

Information on the tables: The upper table provides an up-to-date market overview of new cars with an ex-works natural gas system offered in Germany. The table below provides a list of car models with a CNG system that are no longer produced today but may be available on the market as used cars. In addition to the manufacturer name and the model name, the overviews of cars with natural gas contain the most important technical data and prices. The engine power reflects the power of the combustion engine in natural gas mode. Combined CNG fuel consumption in kilograms per 100 kilometers and CO2 emissions in grams per kilometer are determined by car manufacturers using a standardized cycle. The values for the tank contents describe the size of the fuel tanks for the natural gas, which can be used to calculate the possible range in view of the fuel consumption. The gearbox information in the overview shows whether the car with the natural gas drive has an automatic gearbox or a manual gearbox. The selected technical data and prices in the overview allow comparison of cars with natural gas.
