LPG Electric Hybrid Taxis – Best of Both Worlds

Automotive LPG, also known as Autogas,is the world most common alternative fuel in the transport sector. With 26.8 million vehicles already running on Autogas, serviced by a filling station network of over 76,000 sites, Autogas offers analternative to conventional fuels in all vehicle segments.

Furthermore, vehicles running on LPG produce far fewer of the harmful emissions associated with traditional road fuels such as NOx and particulates that contribute to environmental and health problems. How to further reduce air pollution in cities?

The hybridisation of Autogas vehicles allows to combine the benefits of electricity together with a longer range provided by a cleaner fuel. This technology is particularly suitable for taxis in urban areas.

This case study looks at specific experiences with LPG hybrids, and confirms that Autogas is available today but also ready for tomorrow.
