Introduction This global guide to gas/CNG vehicles is published by Green Highway, a partnership between the three municipalities of Sundsvall (Sweden), Östersund (Sweden) and Trondheim (Norway). The aim of the project is to create a transport corridor free from fossil fuels and to contribute to growth and development in the region. The project is part of Interreg Sweden-Norway and financed by EU. Green Highway is also supported by partners and stakeholders in the region. The guide has been developed based on the establishment of biogas as a renewable fuel for vehicles, together with our ambition to help establish a rapid market development in our region and on a national level. The presentation of an unbiased guide, as complete as possible, about the availability of gas vehicles is an important component in this work. The guide gives an overview of the gas vehicles available on the global market for the model year 2013, with a particular focus on the Swedish and Norwegian markets. Here you will find vehicle prices, technical data such as range on CNG, safety information, links to further reading, official contact information and much more. This guide can work as reference for municipalities, private and public institutions and individuals who are interested in acquiring gas vehicles, or who simply want to be informed about the availability.

This is the second edition of the guide published in English. We have never seen such an extensive guide to gas vehicles as this, nevertheless it is certainly not complete. We value all contributions on mistakes and emissions in the guide. The guide s available in both English and Swedish and can be downloaded from www.greenhighway.nu.

The guide was produced by Mattias Goldmann. We are very thankful to Mattias, who has done an excellent job with this compilation!

SÖT, May 2013

Also read the Guide for Electric and Plug-in Hybrid Cars! Green Highway has also published an extensive guide for electric and plug-in hybrid cars. The guide gives an overview of most models available on the global market. It contains prices, range per charge, charging times, battery types, information about safety, links to further information and much more. The guide is available in both Swedish and English and can be downloaded from www.greenhighway.nu.

Remarks

Selection of vehicles In this guide, gas powered personal cars and light transport vehicles are included, up to the total weight of 3.5 tons. Only vehicles that can be powered by CNG (natural gas or biogas) are included, i.e. vehicles powered by fuels dominated by methane. Vehicles powered by ”motorgas” (LPG), mainly propane and butane, are excluded, since it is not believed that this fuel will be produced using renewable energy in the future. All vehicles included are available at the global market today or at least within a year. We have only included vehicles that we are reasonably certain will be marketed and where at least some of the technical details are available. Gas vehicles that are no longer produced are not included. The boundary between factory produced vehicles and conversions is not clear. We have included all new factory made gas vehicles available on the EU market, as well as conversions that fulfill EU quality and emissions requirements, and can be called ”almost factory built”. In practice, this means that the gas vehicle (as opposed to only its parts) can either be bought from the conversion company, or from dealers of the brand whose car is being converted. We realize that some converters may find themselves excluded from the guide. They are welcome to present their case for inclusion in the next update. Vehicles that can be converted to gas/CNG by the customer bringing the car to the conversion company are not included. The market for this kind of conversions is big in several markets of Latin America (e.g. Peru and Venezuela), and in some Asian countries (e.g. China, India, Iran, Pakistan and Thailand). In some markets, mainly in Asia, small gas powered vehicles are sold, such as rickshaws or tuktuks, many of them three-wheeled. We have included a few of these, mainly as an introduction to this kind of vehicles – there are many other brands offering similar products that are not included in this guide.

Vehicle classification The vehicles in this guide are divided into passenger cars and transport vehicles. All vehicles primarily used for transporting passengers are classified as passenger cars, which for instance means that the Mercedes Sprinter combi is presented as a passenger car, while the van version is presented as a transport vehicle.

Technical data

Fuel The fuels that the vehicle can use are presented. If it says ”Gas/petrol”, the vehicle can be driven on both of these fuels, if it say only ”Gas” it cannot be driven on petrol.

5


Country of manufacture If the conversion to gas is done in a different country than where the vehicle is made, the country of origin is put first, followed by the country of conversion (e.g. ”Germany/Switzerland”).

Price The price is for the cheapest version of the model quoted. All prices are inclusive of local VET, except where stated. ”Base price on home market” is the price in the country of manufacture for factory made gas vehicles, and the country of conversion for vehicles that are converted in a different country. The prices are given in the local currency of the country.

Weight The weight given is the vehicle, with all tanks full (petrol and gas if the vehicle has both), including the driver at 75 kg. Outside of Europe, the vehicle’s ”kerb weight” is often given, which excludes the driver. Here, we have added 75 kg to get a weight that's comparable with other vehicles in the guide. However, not all manufacturers have given any weight data for their gas vehicles. Where possible, we have given an indication based on the weight of the petrol car plus an estimation based on the size of the gas tanks.

Baggage capacity In most gas vehicles, the gas tanks reduce the capacity for luggage or the cargo space. A figure for baggage capacity is only given when this is taken into account.

Maximum payload Many gas vehicles have a significantly lowered maximum payload compared to petrol and diesel vehicles, due to the extra weight of the gas cylinders. The maximum payload is the highest weight allowed from passengers (the driver excluded) plus other cargo.

Engine power For most gas vehicles, the highest power output depends on whether the vehicle is driven using gas or petrol (or other fuels such as ethanol). For vehicles that have been converted to gas, the maximum output is often 10 – 20 per cent lower when using gas, since the engine is not optimized for petrol. If there are several different maximal power output figures, depending on the fuel, these are all indicated. If there is only one figure, it is indicated on which fuel this output figure applies.

Cylinder size The manufacturers and converters usually give the gas cylinder size in kilos of gas, which is also used throughout the guide. When the manufacturer has only given the capacity in liters, we have estimated that a gas cylinder holds 0.17 kg of gas per liter, which is the conversion rate most manufacturers use.

6


Energy consumption Most manufacturers indicate the energy consumption in kilos of gas per 100 km, which is also the way we present it in this guide. The exact consumption depends on which gas that is being used. In Europe, the consumption is predominantly given using the reference gas G20 (100 per cent methane). For non-European manufacturers, it has usually not been possible to establish which gas they have been using, which implies that consumption figures can only be compared allowing for a margin of error.

Range The figure given is based on the gas cylinder size divided by the consumption.

Safety If the vehicle has been crash tested by Euro NCAP or the American NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration), the result is given. Since the Euro NCAP recently changed its' methodology, it is indicated whether the results stem from using the new or the previous method. See also www.euroncap.com.

Remarks Here, other information that we believe may be of relevance for the interested parties is presented.
