+ best-selling passenger car with gas propulsion in Germany since Unique Flex7 versatility and cargo space retained

With the world premiere of the new 1.6 CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) at the Automobile Exhibition (IAA) in natural gas market leader presents the new version of the best-selling gas vehicle in Germany.

20,000 of the predecessor model were and the new Zafira CNG again features the Flex7 system, which it to be quickly turned from a to a two-seater without having to remove or stow away the Thanks to the clever underfloor of the four gas tanks around the axle, the Zafira’s advantages in of versatility and spaciousness are not compromised in any

In fact, the natural gas compact van even more space its predecessor and has luggage compartment of 645 liters in the five-seat configuration the largest among the seven-seat vans (depending on seating up to a maximum of 1820 liters). its successful predecessor, the Zafira 1.6 CNG the innovative monovalentplus concept, enables maximum efficiency natural gas operation. Sales of the Zafira CNG start in spring while orders can be placed when the prices are announced.

Every third natural gas car in Germany is a Zafira. We are proud we have made natural gas so popular, says Hans H. Opel´s Managing Director and President, Engineering, GME. The crash test with the CNG helped to reduce preconceptions and regarding natural gas vehicles.

lower fuel costs and gas emissions

The Zafira 1.6 CNG boasts economic efficiency. Taking fuel consumption of approximately 5.3 of natural gas per 100 kilometers* and the current of around 0.76 euros per of natural gas, fuel can be reduced by approximately 30 percent to diesel variants, or even 50 percent compared to gasoline Taxes and insurance ratings are on the level as those of its 1.6-liter counterpart.

High level of safety

The CNG is also optimally equipped it comes to safety: the high-strength gas tanks and rust-free stainless gas pipes are safely located of the impact zone. This was confirmed by ADAC in a crash conducted with the first CNG in spring 2005. The gas tanks in a metal compartment remained in original position during frontal and side collisions, body deformation.

They are therefore optimally against damage. The entire gas stayed tightly sealed, a result of the safety valves automatically close on the tanks, the automobile club experts, up the test results. In addition, the clearly showed that the of fire with natural gas is not higher than normal.

is also due to the fact that gas is much less flammable gasoline, and in the highly unlikely of a leak, it dissipates immediately. The new CNG also features the efficient system integrated into the cell, which is reinforced by high-strength metal plates. ensured the Zafira the highest of five stars for … safety in the Euro NCAP tests.

Innovative monovalentplus concept: efficiency with natural gas

The CNG unit has an increased compression enabling high efficiency, and is for optimal operation with gas, biogas or any mixture of the The engine has special pistons, and valve-seat inserts, as well as injection banks for natural gas and In addition, the engine management was optimized for natural gas operation. A gasoline reserve tank continued mobility on routes a natural gas filling station.

Switching between fuel modes is via a switch on the center or happens automatically when the fuel supply is too low. to low consumption and the four natural gas generous capacity of 21 kilograms, the CNG has a total operating range of than 540 kilometers.
