The new Skoda Octavia G-TEC is equipped with a 1.5 TSI engine with a return of 130 hp. CO2 emissions in gas mode are approximately 25% lower than in gas mode.

The new Skoda Octavia G-TEC is able to run on environmentally friendly compressed natural gas. The novelty is driven by a 1.5 TSI engine, the output of which is 130 hp, and the range on natural gas is 500 km. Three tanks are installed at the bottom of the machine and hold a total of 17.33 kg of liquefied gas. A 9-liter gas tank provides mobility in regions without the right infrastructure.

As representatives of the brand noted, this type of fuel burns more cleanly, which leads to a reduction in emissions of harmful substances by about 25% than when working on gasoline; in addition, much less nitric oxide is released and soot particles are not formed. The engine is very efficient thanks to, among other things, the control of the intake valves.

When using gasoline, the stock of which is only 9 liters, the Octavia G-TEC can travel up to 190 km, so the total range is 700 km. Switching between gas and gasoline mode occurs automatically without driver intervention.

A car begins to use hydrocarbon fuel only in certain situations, for example, when the outdoor temperature is below -10 degrees Celsius or when gas cylinders are so empty that the pressure drops below 11 bar.

The new Skoda Octavia G-TEC is equipped with a special mode of operation of the virtual instrument panel and can be easily identified using the icon on the back. The cost of new items is not yet called.
