Dacia commends Autogas range for a smart drive
Damien Laplane, Head of Cross-Car Line Services at Dacia, gave his outlook on why LPG is making so many happy customers out of all those who have chosen Dacia’s ECO-G bi-fuel engine. “LPG is practical, economical, eco-friendly, and simple. LPG is Dacia through and through!” said Laplane.
Autogas is a cheaper fuel that gives greater mileage. Just like diesel? Yes, but it is in fact cheaper to buy, while emitting less CO₂ and fine particulates. Considered a clean fuel in many countries, LPG worth reading up about. Thanks to the ECO-G label, Dacia customers can opt for an LPG engine across its entire range. Unlike no other offer on the market, it’s a win-win situation for both the customer and the planet.
For the past two years, Autogas uptake has been gaining speed. Sales are taking off, driven by higher petrol and diesel pump prices. As such, the number of petrol/LPG bi-fuel engines as original equipment is on the rise. A daring brand, Dacia has been revolutionising the automotive world with its unique business model and by focusing on the fundamentals of affordable, contemporary vehicles. Dacia has believed in Autogas ever since 2010. It is currently the only brand on the market to offer LPG as an option across its whole ICE range.
Given that it now comes as original equipment and has an associated manufacturer’s warranty, many new customers feel more reassured and have embraced the offer. LPG models sales made up 1 in every 5 cars sold by Dacia in 2020. In the first half of 2021, they represented 28% of all sales.
“Dacia customers are very pragmatic: they are looking for a vehicle that is useful in day-to-day life. Thanks to the bi-fuel engine and its two tanks, LPG offers a range of more than 1,000 km which goes high as 1,300 kilometres on the New Dacia Sandero,” commented Laplane.
Dacia’s ECO-G Autogas engine is available across the brand’s whole range – Sandero, Sandero Stepway, Logan, All-New Duster, and All-New Jogger. For more information, please visit this link.
