The serial production of LADA Vesta CNG has begun

RusAutoNews.Com – As reported by the press-office, AVTOVAZ has launched the production  of LADA Vesta CNG. For the first time in the history of the brand, the dealers will receive an automobile with a serial gas-cylinder unit designed for the use of compressed natural gas.

LADA Vesta CNG can operate on both petrol and methane as fuel. A 90-litre CNG cylinder, designed for 18 cubic meters of gas, is located in the trunk of the car, behind the rear seat.

Fully refueled, the automobile is able to travel for more than 1000 km, without being refueled. In case the gas runs out in the cylinders, the engine power automatically transfers to petrol. It’s also possible to change the fuel manually, by using the gas/petrol switch.

The first LADA Vesta CNG vehicles, manufactured in May, will soon be put on test for potential corporate clients. The information about the distribution of the automobiles to the dealer network will be given out in due course.
