Audi e-gas / Audi g-tron

Audi A3 Sportback g-tron

Thanks to its very high energy density, natural gas (CNG = compressed natural gas) is very well suited for use as an automotive fuel. In addition, the combustion of CNG releases significantly less CO2 than does the combustion of gasoline, for example. And because CNG is a particularly cost-effective fuel in many markets, there is now also substantial demand in the premium segment.
