Eco-friendlier, affordable, and available today: CNG powertrains in the SKODA G-TEC models
Larger CNG tanks ensure excellent range The design of the new ŠKODA G-TEC versions of the SCALA, the KAMIQ and the all-new OCTAVIA generation features larger CNG tanks, with the resulting greater ranges enabling drivers to cover even longer journeys using the more eco-friendly and economical CNG mode for the most part.
In CNG mode, running on natural gas, these cars emit 25 per cent fewer CO2 emissions than vehicles powered by a conventional petrol engine. CNG has a higher energy content than petrol or diesel and is cheaper to buy. In Germany, the single largest European market for ŠKODA, the price advantage over diesel-powered vehicles comes in at around 40 per cent, and as much as 50 per cent for petrol engines.
Its three CNG tanks have a joint capacity of 17.3 kilograms, allowing for a range of up to 480 kilometres in CNG mode. In both models, the three CNG tanks have a capacity of 13.8 kilograms – equivalent to a CNG-only range of around 410 kilometres in the SCALA and KAMIQ.
