  • Gianluca Italia, Head of Brand Fiat EMEA, perceived a prestigious prize during a endowment rite hold yesterday in Warsaw
  • According to a general Autobest panel, a Fiat ‘Methane Programme’ is a simplest and many cost-effective solution, with a lowest environmental impact among fuels permitted today
  • The Fiat Group has been a heading European strange apparatus manufacturer (OEM) for methane-fuelled vehicles for some-more than 15 years: approximately 600,000 units sold, comprising Natural Power cars and blurb vehicles
  • Taking honour of place in a programme is a innovative methane-fuelled 80HP 0.9 TwinAir Turbo dual-fuel – named ‘Best Green Engine of a Year 2013’ – that combines a creation of MultiAir, turbo architecture, TwinAir ‘downsizing’ and specific methane fuel technologies

 

The endowment rite in that a Fiat ‘Methane Programme’ – represented by Gianluca Italia, Head of Brand Fiat EMEA – perceived a ʻEcobest 2013′ pretension took place yesterday dusk in Warsaw (Poland).

 

Inaugurated 12 years ago as a initial European endowment dedicated to immature products and record in a automotive sector, a ʻEcobest’ pretension is awarded by a row comprising 15 dilettante journalists, representing a same series of European countries with a sum race of approximately 300 million: Bulgaria, Cyprus, Croatia, Greece, Macedonia, Poland, Czech Republic, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey, Ukraine and Hungary.

 

According to a general Autobest panel, a Fiat ‘Methane Programme’ is a simplest and many cost-effective solution, with a lowest environmental impact among fuels permitted today. An critical approval that confirms Fiat’s joining to continual investigate into concrete, effective and permitted technological solutions done permitted to a immeasurable open so that they can feat a biggest series of environmental and mercantile benefits.

 

In a margin of choice fuels, Fiat considers that methane engines are now a many suitable technological choice for contributing to a rebate of wickedness in civic areas and a reduction of CO2 emissions. Methane engines minimise a many damaging emissions, such as particulate (to roughly zero), nitrogen oxide and a many reactive hydrocarbons that means a arrangement of other pollutants. They also beget 23 per cent reduction CO2 compared to petrol engines. Therefore, methane is a ‘cleanest’ and cheapest fuel permitted currently and it is also potentially a source of renewable appetite in a box of bio-methane.

 

For over 15 years, a Fiat Group has been a heading European strange apparatus manufacturer (OEM) for methane-fuelled vehicles, a one that offers a widest eco-friendly operation with dual-fuel supply (methane/petrol), that accommodates a needs of a extended clientèle, including products ride professionals: given 1997, a Group has sole approximately 600 thousand Natural Power cars and blurb vehicles.

 

Taking honour of place in a Fiat ‘Methane’ programme is a innovative methane-fuelled 0.9 TwinAir Turbo dual-fuel named ‘Best Green Engine of a Year 2013’, one of a twelve categories of a prestigious ‘International Engine of a Year Awards’. Already permitted on a Fiat Panda, Fiat 500L and Fiat 500L models, a new ‘two-cylinder’ combines a creation of MultiAir, turbocharger architecture, TwinAir ‘downsizing’ and specific methane fuel technologies.

 

TwinAir Turbo record secures all a environmental advantages of methane but ever carrying to give adult on pushing compensation and power. This is demonstrated by a limit energy of 80 HP (59 kW) during 5,500 rpm and a limit torque of no fewer than 140 Nm during only 2,500 rpm. All of this with reduced emissions and fuel consumption: for example, a values available with Fiat Panda TwinAir Turbo Natural Power are 86 g/km of CO2 and 3.1 kg of methane each 100 km (combined cycle).
