May 24, 2021. Nissan, one of the most popular car brands in Mexico, announced that it will open 25 workshops so that its customers can convert their vehicles from gasoline to compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).
The models included in the project are the Nissan NP300, March, Urvan and V-Drive. The initiative consists of adapting a feeding system for this type of fuel and that the driver decides if he wants to operate his vehicle with CNG or LPG.
To carry out these conversions, Nissan teamed up with Gazo Sistemas. The aforementioned models must have been marketed from 2020 to date.
“At Nissan, we have learned that the way customers shop and mobilize continues to evolve. Given this situation, we are pioneers in the launch of conversion to gas, a program that will allow owners more mobility alternatives,” said Gerardo Fernández, Sales Director at Nissan Mexicana.
“This is the result of years of testing and experience that combines the best of Japanese engineering with national manufacturing,” concluded the executive.
Some of the main benefits of this type of fuel are lower polluting emissions, better autonomy for each load and a short-term return on investment (between 6 and 8 months depending on the brand).
Another important point is the fact that, with this energy, the car is exempt from the “Hoy no circula” program in Mexico City. Thanks to this, the owner of a vehicle with this conversion will be able to circulate every day without any restriction.
To meet its goal, Nissan offers 25 conversion points nationwide. The work will have a guarantee of 3 years or 60,000 kilometers, both for new units and for those that have traveled a few kilometers, but have performed their services at the firm’s agency.
