Alternative Engines

Thanks to LPG and CNG technologies our models are economical and still show powerful performance.


The LPG & CNG models are not only better for the environment, but they also are better for you economically. It is important to us that clean technology stays affordable, while still showing great performance.


Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) – Cheap and clean

CO2 emissions with LPG are 10 to 13 percent lower than average and you can cut your fuel costs by around 40 percent, regardless of the annual distance covered. There re also tax advantages in some countries. LPG models can run on gasoline as well as LPG – the switch-over happens automatically, but can also be made at the press of a button – so there’s no cause for range anxiety. We are expanding our LPG range to a total of seven models.


Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) – Practical and economical ecology

The monovalentplus concept we have used in our CNG vehicles since 2002 boasts unrivalled operating costs, produces up to 80 percent lower emissions and 20 percent less CO2 than a comparable gasoline engine. It enables an operating range of up to 400 kilometers in natural gas mode and guarantees unrestricted passenger and luggage compartment use. Opel CNG vehicles feature a gasoline reserve tank that increases operating range by around 150 kilometers, ensuring full everyday suitability.
