July 29, 2019. SEAT accumulates more than 2,100 vehicles powered by compressed natural gas (CNG) so far this year, after signing different fleet renewal agreements with companies such as Canon Spain, Lácteas del Jarama, Ametller Origen and the Municipal Police from Madrid.
In this way, the Spanish firm continues its strategy of providing cars to the main institutions and companies, reaffirming its position as the leading brand in Spain that designs, develops and produces its vehicles in the country.
As the company said in a statement, one of the most prominent channels for the SEAT has been that of ‘Real Fleet’ (renting plus purchase of companies), with 25% of sales (522 units) and an increase of 11, 8% compared to the same period of 2018.
The SEAT brand explained that during the year so far there is a “great boom” in the demand for the TGI range between business and self-employed companies, as well as more and more large fleets of companies that are beginning to opt also for vehicular mobility with natural gas given the double slope ECO (ecology and economy) of this technology of the Spanish manufacturer
The TGI range of SEAT has the environmental label ‘ECO’ of the General Directorate of Traffic, because it reduces CO2 emissions by around 25% compared to a homonymous model of gasoline, generates 75% less emissions of NOx with respect to a diesel, and has practically zero emissions of soot particles and sulfur dioxide (SO2)
In addition, CNG models, according to the Spanish company, have the best cost per kilometer traveled, resulting in 50% cheaper than driving with a gasoline vehicle; 30% more than with a diesel model; 10% more compared to liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and 25% more than with a non-plug-in electric hybrid.
