The Volkswagen Group and industry partners chart a course for success in the expansion of CNG mobility

  • Campaign alliance draws positive conclusion six months after the launch of the official information campaign: status of CNG has grown, registration figures have increased, political framework conditions have improved
  • Joint commitment is being further expanded with CNG Mobility Days in Essen
  • New CNG models of Volkswagen Group brands are about to be launched in the marketplace: VW Polo TGI, SEAT Ibiza TGI
  • Volkswagen Group also grants customers a special bonus in addition to the environmental premium if they switch to CNG vehicles with low CO2 emissions
  • Sales of CNG vehicles in October 2017 up by 34.8 percent in October 2017 compared with the year-earlier level
  • Number of partner companies in the industry sphere of CNG mobility has undergone further growth

The Volkswagen Group and its industry partners from the areas of gas supply, grid and filling station businesses have drawn a positive provisional conclusion from their joint commitment to the expansion of CNG mobility. Just a few months after the start of the current information offensive with the CNG Mobility Days in Hamburg, the campaign alliance succeeded in achieving a significant increase in the status of CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) for individual mobility. Since July 2017, the number of newly registered CNG vehicles in Germany on a month-for-month basis increased significantly compared to the previous year. At the launch of the CNG Mobility Days on 7 and 8 November 2017 in Essen, the companies announced further steps for their initiative. The latest models developed by the Volkswagen Group to run on CNG are being presented in Essen in the form of the VW Polo TGI and the SEAT Ibiza 1.0 TGI. Furthermore, the Volkswagen Group rewards the move to a low CO2 CNG vehicle with a special bonus. The industry circle for CNG Mobility recently gained additional momentum when biomethane manufacturer VERBIO joined the group.
