Liquid petroleum gasoline is hardly a mainstream offering from automakers, but Opel will buck that trend with the Crossland X LPG. The brand, now owned by PSA Groupe, revealed the LPG variant will go an estimated 808 miles before needing to refill. The car operates on both LPG and regular gasoline.
The LPG tank is located the spare-wheel well so interior space is unaffected and an LED indicator lets drivers know when LPG is the main fuel source, rather than gasoline. It will also show drivers the remaining range with gasoline or LPG. The LPG-capable engine is a 1.2-liter three-cylinder unit paired to a five-speed manual transmission.
The Opel Crossland X LPG comes as Germany renews tax concessions for LPG-powered cars. Now, the tax concessions will run through 2022. Across Europe, 25,000 fuel stations offer LPG with 6,200 stations in Germany alone. The LPG-powered crossover will go on sale with a starting price of €21,200 or roughly $25,000 USD at current exchange rates.
