Spain: Autogas vehicle sales increase 250% in the last 5 years
The savings of up to 50% compared to conventional fuels, the autonomy of the vehicles that exceeds 1,200 km, environmental awareness and the fact of having the Spanish DGT’s ECO label are making many customers consider Autogas, which ensures sustainable mobility in every way. With its ECO-G LPG vehicle range, Dacia offers an economical, ecological and accessible solution, while contributing to decarbonisation of transport.
Its wide range of LPG-powered models has made Dacia the leader in this technology with half a million units sold worldwide and almost 50,000 Autogas vehicles in Spain, leading the national market since 2017. With a market share of 86% in the first half of 2022, Dacia remains firmly at the top of the LPG car market. Today, some 28 million LPG vehicles circulate on roads around the world and more than 150,000 units in Spain. In Europe, the Autogas market has grown by 35% and in Spain by 250%.
The success of the ECO-G engine is very important within the brand, as evidenced by the fact that today more than two out of three Dacia customers choose this LPG engine at the time of purchase.
