January 2, 2020. The registrations of gas cars in Spain have closed the year 2019 with a total of 32,910 units sold, which represents a strong rise of 30% compared to the previous year. In this way, they continue to stand, by far, ahead of the sales of electric cars and plug-in hybrids, being an excellent affordable option for sustainable mobility.
In the accumulated period of the previous year, that is, between January and December 2019, a total of 32,910 vehicles powered by compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) have been marketed in the dealerships. It is 30% more than in 2018.
In addition to offering significant savings on the fuel bill, one of the main keys of gas vehicles is that they have the DGT (General Traffic Directorate) ECO badge. A sticker that allows drivers to benefit from a whole series of advantages when traveling through large cities. That is why many drivers have seen in the gas cars an affordable sustainable mobility option.
Dacia and SEAT concentrate a large part of sales in Spain. In the specific case of the Romanian firm there is an unwavering commitment to LPG, since its entire range has a version adapted to the use of liquefied petroleum gas. On the contrary, the Spanish brand has decided to bet on natural gas for vehicles. SEAT is the visible head of the Volkswagen Group in terms of CNG technology.
