The new SEAT Ibiza CNG Design

The best SEAT Ibiza in history is now also the most eco-friendly Ibiza, with the arrival of the brand’s technology for Compressed Natural Gas on the fifth generation of the Spanish carmaker’s best-seller. The new Ibiza TGI is less expensive to run and more eco-friendly than equivalent models fuelled with diesel or petrol, as well as non plug-in hybrids.

This new car, the third CNG model following the Leon and the Mii, is manufactured in the Martorell factory using the MQB A0 platform. SEAT is actively boosting CNG at is contributes to lowering the CO2 emission targets: it emits, on average, 85% less nitrogen oxide and helps decrease CO2 emissions by 25%, and thus contributes improving the air quality of cities.

Its operating cost per kilometre is indeed especially low; firstly, because natural gas is more efficient than other fuels as it requires a smaller amount of fuel to produce the same energy, and furthermore, it only costs around 13 euros to fill the tank. This results in a longer driving range and subsequent cost savings per kilometre driven.

The new SEAT Ibiza 1.0 TGI delivers 90 PS performance and an average certified fuel consumption of 3.3 kg/100 km in CNG mode, which is the same as making 3.22 euro investment to drive 100 kilometres.

The total distance that the new Ibiza TGI can cover amounts to 1,194 km when making use of the 13 kg of CNG and the 40 litres of petrol in both fuel tanks.
