LPG versions of the Dacia Duster, Sandero and Logan officially available in the UK
Dacia is bringing Autogas-capable versions of its models to the United Kingdom with its new ‘bi-fuel’ variant for the Duster, Sandero and Logan MCV. Dacia is the first manufacturer to offer LPG versions across the range, available direct from the factory.
Autogas-powered Dacia Duster, Sandero and Logan MCV models can already be ordered in the UK, all badged TCe 100 Bi-Fuel. All use new 1.0-litre turbocharged powertrain, combining petrol and LPG capabilities and delivering superior torque in LPG mode. Customers benefit from choice of both LPG and petrol on the move, a combined range of more than 620 miles, as well as CO2 reductions in LPG mode.
Regarding environmental benefits, emissions savings are of up to 11% for the award-winning Duster, and 9% for the Sandero, with up to 2.4 tonnes CO2 saving over a four-year period.
Moreover, Autogas costs around 50% less on average to refill than petrol. Owners benefit from an average of £594 savings on their annual fuel bill with the new bi-fuel system, or nearly £2,400 over a four-year PCP (personal contract purchase).
Practicality of all models is retained with no impact on boot space despite the additional LPG fuel tank; while servicing and maintenance intervals identical to standard petrol models with the same three-year, 60,000-mile warranty.
Luke Broad, Dacia’s UK brand boss, also explained that all of Dacia’s dealer staff have been given extra training in how to educate buyers of the bi-fuel models, showing them how to switch between each fuel type and how to fuel the car at one of the 1,200 fuelling stations with Autogas.
