Whether in compressed or liquid form, natural gas can fuel a wide range of vehicles, from forklifts to heavy-duty trucks, with a spark-ignition engine that is just as powerful as a gasoline or diesel engine. Without question, the energy efficiency of this technology is also environmentally friendly. Cleaner than gasoline or diesel engines, a 100% natural gas engine reduces greenhouse emissions by as much as 25%. When the engine is powered by renewable natural gas (biomethane), this figure exceeds 90%.
Both a responsible and a money-saving option, a vehicle powered by natural gas helps you realize savings of up to 30% compared to traditional fuels.
Charts comparing annual fuel costs1 for a garbage truck that consumes an average of 96.5 liters of diesel per 100 km. Based on an annual mileage of 40,000 kilometers. The natural gas costs represent a compressed natural gas engine (CNG) and those of propane to a hybrid engine (30% propane and 70% diesel)
Save money and drive clean! Compared to gasoline or diesel, natural gas is more effective in reducing greenhouse emissions (up to 25%), SO2 emissions (99%), NOx emissions (up to 70%) and particulate matter emissions (up to 97%).
Save more with grants from the Écocamionnage provincial government program. It provides financial assistance to reduce the acquisition cost of natural gas vehicles. More reason to switch to blue!
By choosing a 100% natural gas engine, you can obtain up to 400 HP and a torque of 1450 ft/lbs.
A vehicle with a 100% natural gas engine can easily travel up to 1000 km. For companies with a fleet of vehicles, this is an efficient and reliable choice.
