Opel Bringing More LPG Vehicles To European Market


Opel International, one of Europe's largest auto manufacturers, has expanded its lineup of vehicles powered by liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) to include the Astra five-door hatchback, the Astra Sports Tourer and the Meriva. These vehicles can now be ordered with Opel's new 1.4 L LPG Turbo ecoFLEX engine.

The company's LPG models feature both an LPG tank and a gasoline tank to increase the vehicles' operating range. The range of the Astra five-door LPG model, for example, is more than 1,400 km (approximately 930 miles) using a 56-liter gas tank and a 49-liter LPG tank.

Opel launched its Corsa LPG 1.2 L ecoFLEX three- and five-door models last June. The company anticipates further expanding its LPG suite this fall, with the release of ecoFLEX versions of the Zafira Tourer and the Insignia.
