Dacia’s bold decision to go LPGThe vast majority of cars equipped with the bi-fuel engine were retrofitted with the necessary equipment. In other words, a process requiring specialized retrofitters that operate outside manufacturer networks. But, for the past two years, LPG uptake has been gaining speed. Sales are taking off, driven by higher petrol and diesel pump prices.
As such, the number of petrol/LPG bi-fuel engines as original equipment is on the rise. A daring brand, Dacia has been revolutionizing the automotive world with its unique business model and by focusing on the fundamentals of affordable, contemporary vehicles. Dacia has believed in LPG ever since 2010. It is currently the only brand on the market to offer LPG as an option across its whole ICE range. Yet more proof of its daring edge!
"Dacia has made LPG a more accessible solution by offering it across its whole range – Sandero, Sandero Stepway, Logan, All-New Duster, and All-New Jogger, – via the ECO-G label," says Damien.
And so, LPG is booming! In France, for example, the market increased fourfold in the first half of 2021 compared to 2020 and is 15 times larger than in 2019. The considerable growth is buoyed up primarily by Dacia: in 2020, it represented 78% of new LPG vehicle sales in France. A fantastic performance that says a lot about the ideal match between LPG and the brand's philosophy!
