Natural Gas Vehicles

Natural gas powertrains in HGVs are a popular alternative to traditional diesel engines. They run on compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquefied natural gas (LNG) and offer reduced emissions and improved fuel efficiency compared to diesel engines. The use of natural gas as a fuel source can also provide a cost savings over diesel, particularly for fleets with a large number of vehicles and high annual mileage. Despite not being a carbon zero solution, Natural-Gas offers a low carbon stepping stone in the journey to decarbonisation. The adoption of natural gas powertrains in heavy commercial vehicles is expected to grow in the coming years as the demand for more sustainable and cost-effective transportation solutions increases- expect to be kept informed on this ever-changing market at Freight Carbon Zero.

Natural gas powertrains in heavy goods vehicles  use compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquefied natural gas (LNG) to offer reduced emissions, improved fuel efficiency, and cost savings compared to traditional diesel engines.
