The Volkswagen group and industry partner of the energy industry to build CNG-mobility

25.6.2019. The Volkswagen group and the industry partners from the areas of gas supply network and gas station operating in the 3. CNG Mobility Days in Berlin (25./26. June 2019) for an Overview of the current Situation and the future of CNG. At the same time the Volkswagen group’s brands will introduce their latest CNG models in the passenger Car, Truck and bus Segment.



The Volkswagen group and its brands put in parallel to the progressive electrification of the fleet ends, continue on CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) as an alternative propulsion technology for the Decarbonisation of transport. The product range has been revised and expanded. The Volkswagen group currently offers the largest selection of CNG to vehicles from all manufacturers. That CNG will continue to play an important role for the group, Herbert Diess, management Board Chairman of Volkswagen AG, announced in mid-may of 2019 at the annual General meeting: “The gas we are the global market leader and better positioned than the competition. So this technology, we will continue to expand and improve.“

The use of CNG as an energy carrier for Automobiles is making an effective contribution to the reduction of emissions and for the customer a cost-effective Alternative to gasoline and Diesel. “Volkswagen is committed to the Paris climate protection agreement. In the case of alternative drives, which come in addition to the electrification offensive of the group, plays CNG an important role. CNG is sufficiently tested, available immediately, efficiently and cost-effectively. And for CNG passenger Cars have no driving bans threaten in the inner cities,“ explains Stephen Neumann, Volkswagen group officer CNG-mobility. He adds: “A better CO2-balance is obtained by means of the Refuelling with biomethane and e-Gas. Biomethane is derived from organic residual material, e-Gas from excess green electricity (Power-to-Gas). Both can be easily into the gas and fossil natural gas in any quantity mixed fed.“

In this area, the Volkswagen group brands to engage with their industry partners for some time. Audi, for example, operates in Werlte (Emsland) since 2013, the world’s first industrial Power-to-Gas plant and feed the electricity from wind power-derived Audi e-gas into the natural gas grid. In this way, Audi is part of and a driver of the energy transition. The vehicle customer is provided with green energy available and at the same time, the storage of fluctuating renewable electricity, and their investigation allows, in practice, the rapid Expansion of Wind and solar energy – are so important for the success of E-mobility.

CNG model range, becoming more and more attractive

Currently, the Volkswagen group offers 17 models in different vehicle segments. In a letter to Scala, the variant celebrates the CNG Mobility Days will have its world premiere as CNG, and the ŠKODA Kamiq in addition, the ŠKODA two other models. The offer ranges from the small car segment, the compact class at Volkswagen, Audi, SEAT and ŠKODA to Audi premium vehicles in the Business Segment and light commercial vehicles. Thanks to the ever-growing CNG Model offerings, the sales have doubled in numbers in the year 2018 compared to the previous year.

The new CNG models, such as, for example, the Polo TGI (66 kW/90 HP) and the Golf TGI (96 kW/130 PS) what is reduced in the gas tank, significantly, an additional CNG bottle in the vehicles built, and thus, a quasi-monovalent CNG engine developed. For Volkswagen, it meets the desire of many customers for a greater range in natural gas operation. A concept of the range of distribution in the Caddy from Volkswagen commercial vehicles is already a longer life.

The VW Golf TGI and Golf estate TGI (96 kW/130 PS) received in addition, a CNG-optimized engine with very low consumption, higher performance and improved Acceleration even at low engine speeds. As economical, clean and simultaneously attractive to CNG models may be, has proven the Polo TGI in the most recent ADAC Ecotest. He was one of seven models with the highest rating of five stars and the only vehicle with an internal combustion engine in this group. The result of 95 points, the best in the year 2019 what is the result.

With the SEAT Arona 1.0 TGI, the Spanish company offers as the first manufacturer in the world, the CNG technology as a SUV-model, the fastest-growing vehicle segment. That is a CNG model, therefore, can be particularly sporty and dynamic, underlining the new 2.0 TFSI engine from Audi, for example, in the A5 Sportback g-tron. The unit was recently awarded the “International Engine of the Year”Award in the category of 150 to 250 HP, and can also be used as a CNG engine used.

CNG for Trucks and buses is of great importance

For the first time, inform in the framework of the CNG Mobility Days, the brands of MAN and SCANIA on the latest developments in Trucks and buses. According to the new emission standards in the European Union up to the year 2030, the CO2 emissions are to be reduced in comparison to 2019 to 30 percent – a goal that will be realized with traditional drive types hard to. So, for Trucks and buses, CNG is an immediately available and viable Alternative, which has already compared to Diesel vehicles, a 15 per cent lower fuel consumption. Currently, the toll exemption for natural gas-powered Truck is especially an important Argument for CNG – specifically designed for trucking companies.

The circle of the CNG industry partners

With the recent accessions of the operator of the natural gas tank OrangeGas and the Italian authorities transmission system operator for natural gas, Snam S. p. A. (Società Nazionale Metanodotti) to the CNG Industry, has won the coalition for action from the Volkswagen group and industry partner once again to power. The goal of the Industry group CNG-mobility, vehicle supply, infrastructure and network of petrol stations alike expand.

Sustainable on-the-go

The issue of sustainability is also reflected in the execution of the CNG Mobility Days. In order to reduce the CO2 footprint of the event, was taken to a climate-friendly implementation. This refers to furniture, conference Seating and materials, the selection of local suppliers and the regional preparation of the catering, in order to avoid unnecessary transportation and unnecessary waste.

The specified consumption and emission values were determined in accordance with the legally stipulated measuring method. Since 1. September 2017 to be certain a new car after the worldwide harmonised test procedures for Passenger and light commercial vehicles (Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure, WLTP), a more realistic test method for the measurement of the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions type-approved. Since 1. September 2018 and replaced by the WLTP is the new European driving cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic conditions of the test, the WLTP measured fuel consumption and CO2 emission values are in many cases higher than the NEDC measured. For more information about the Differences between WLTP and NEDC, lake www.volkswagen.de/wltp.

Currently, the NEDC to communicate values mandatory yet. If it is a new car, which are type-approved in WLTP, are derived from the NEDC-values of the WLTP-values. The additional indication of the WLTP-values can be made up to their mandatory use is voluntary. To the extent that the NEDC-values are given in ranges, they do not refer to a single, individual vehicle and are not part of the offer. They serve solely for purposes of comparison between different vehicle types. Additional equipment features and accessories (attachment parts, tyres, format, etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as e.g. weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics-and, together with Weather and traffic conditions and individual driving behavior, the fuel consumption, electricity consumption, CO2 emissions and driving performance values of a vehicle affect.

Note according to Directive 1999/94/EC in the currently applicable version: Further information on official fuel consumption and official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be taken to the ‘guide on the fuel economy, CO2-emissions and power consumption of new Passenger’, of charge at all sales outlets and at DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Straße 1, D-73760 Ostfildern, or under www.dat.de free of charge is available.
