Peruvian drivers save money with affordable pre-owned Autogas cars


When buying a car, the consumer always looks for the most economical options for his pocket, but at the same time that seek a guarantee on their investment. In Peru, one option is the purchase of a pre-owned OEM LPG-powered vehicle with a 1.6-litre engine, allowing the consumer to save up to S/ 3,266 (about US$ 1,000) a year in fuel costs.

Kopemotors CEO Diloy Oyola explained that if a consumer buys an OEM Autogas Hyundai Elantra (Hyundai Avante in South Korea), the tank capacity will be 65 litres with 12 litres of reserve so the cost to refill it (53 litres) will be S/ 68 (US$20) with a reference price of LPG of S/ 1.29 (US$ 0.40) per litre.

This vehicle will provide a performance of 40 kilometres per four litres of LPG and a total range of 520 kilometres. So if during the year, which represents the guarantee offered by the dealership, the car is refuelled on average 38 times, the consumer will spend S/ 2,584 US$ 757) on fuel.

This expense is much lower when compared to a gasoline vehicle since the driver will spend S/ 5,850 (US$ 1,778) a year because each time he refills it should allocate S/ 130 (US$ 40) for a vehicle with a capacity of 44 litres (11 gallons), which gives it 40 kilometres by four litres and a total of 440 kilometres.

“The person who purchases a new Hyundai Elantra with the original factory LPG system will save S/ 3,266 a year in fuel costs, which is a significant saving for the pocket of all Peruvians,” said Oyola. He also said that Kopemotors sells Korean vehicles with a maximum age of three years and offering a 12-month warranty, on 100% of the operation of the vehicle.
