Suzuki Italy adds LPG fuel system to boost alternative fuel portfolio
Suzuki Italia S.p.A. (Suzuki Italy) has chosen the Autogas system from Cherasco-based BRC Gas Equipment (BRC) to expand its bi-fuel product offering. Vehicles in the programme will include the Swift, Jimny, S-Cross, Celerio, Vitara Ignis and Baleno models. This longstanding partnership provides bi-fuel LPG options to growing market.
BRC has worked with Suzuki Italy since 2008 developing both dedicated and bi-fuel LPG kits compatible with Suzuki Italy’s entire vehicle line-up. Once approved by Suzuki Italy, LPG kits are sold and installed directly at dealerships or through BRC’s official workshop network, BRC Gas Service, which includes more than 500 specialised workshops, offering a wide range of technical and commercial services. Each LPG kit includes a three-year warranty and supplementary insurance policy.
“This streamlined approach to development, distribution and installation has allowed Suzuki Italy to quickly expand their LPG product offering and gain market share in Italy,” said Marco Torassa, DOEM Sales Manager of BRC. “Having sold over 5,800 dedicated LPG kits and 6,500 bi-fuel conversion kits to customers, we are excited to continue partnering with Suzuki Italy to provide technology solutions to reduce emissions and meet the growing demand for LPG vehicles.”
The agreement includes: manufacturing of Autogas conversion kits in collaboration with Suzuki (with components dedicated to Suzuki’s vehicle applications), three years of warranty or 100,000 kilometres on BRC components since the kit installation date, warranty valid throughout Italy at BRC Gas Service workshops or authorised Suzuki dealers, complementary insurance (REALE MUTUA) valid for three years or 100,000 kilometres.
