Westport Fuel Systems announces new Autogas Kia Sportage
Inspired by continuous innovation and 25 years of cooperation, the partnership between Westport Fuel Systems Inc. (WFS) and Kia now offers a version of its Kia Sportage model powered by LPG, which was recently presented at the European Liquid Gas Congress in Barcelona.
Available for purchase starting from mid-July and for delivery in September, this version will complement an innovative version that will combine the LPG system with full-hybrid technology. The LPG hybrid will be available in coming months.
With over 100,000 registered vehicles, the DOEM (delayed OEM) WFS-Kia partnership has proven effective and reliable. Taken together, vehicles sold under the partnership have saved 154,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions and saved users approximately €500 million in fuel costs compared to gasoline-powered vehicles.
LPG models have been in high demand; in this case, Kia was able to offer this option on a best-selling Kia model that entered the market only a few months ago. For more information, please check this link.
