The Brussels Motor Show was a big success for natural gas vehicles (NGVs), reports NGVA Europe, with numerous vehicles on display and many orders placed. Fiat, Volkswagen, Mercedes, Opel, Lancia and Seat all presented their latest models, with 8 vehicles on the floor and over 150 NGVs sold.
The reduction of €2,000 per car granted by the gas sector combined with manufacturers’ promotional incentives proved to be a great success. According to an initial evaluation provided by car manufacturers, over 150 natural gas vehicles had been ordered by the close of the Show. The incentives, on offer until the end of February, are likely to stimulate significant additional sales.
NGVA Europe says the presentation of the new Audi A3 chassis allowed enthusiasts to understand the technological innovations provided by natural gas fuel.
NGVA Europe will host its own event in the city – NGV 2014 Brussels, the ‘5th International Show & Workshops’ – from July 7-10.
