General Motors will offer two new compressed natural gas models of the 2014 Chevrolet Express and the GMC Savana passenger van. The car maker made this known at the Green Fleet Conference & Expo that aims for clean vehicle technologies.
The automaker is already offering CNG option for its cargo vans and now the 2014 Express and Savana will join this line-up. According to Ed Peper, U. S. vice president of GM Fleet and Commercial Sales, GM is offering manufacture-engineered, validated and warranted CNG vehicles, so that to help customers to manage their budget and to reduce their carbon footprint.
He has been quoted as saying that the both the vehicles will meet GM standards for safety, reliability and durability.
The automaker also argued that natural gas is less costly and also helps to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, while comparing with other liquid fuel.
GM has also announced bi-fuel versions of the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra. These bi-fuel vehicles series will be available with a dual-tank feature, so that the driver can switch between gasoline and CNG.
All these bi-fuel trucks and CNG vans will begin production by early next year and also will start taking orders at the same time.
