The family of the new Skoda Octavia replenished with another modification. We are talking about the version of G-Tec, capable of working both on gasoline and on environmentally friendly compressed natural gas (CNG). this model will be to be had handiest within the European marketplace. in contrast to its predecessor, it will likely be offered now not best within the station wagon, but also liftback.
Due to the fact that the last fundamental modernization of the G-Tec version was carried out in 2018, the entire technical component for the new product passed practically unchanged. In particular, the TSI 1.5-liter turbo engine and the 7-speed DSG “robot” remained the same. The motor is capable of running the Miller cycle and produces 150 hp on gasoline. power, and on gas – 130 hp.
The updated Skoda Octavia G-Tec is equipped with three methane storage tanks that hold 17.33 kilograms of LNG and a 9-liter gas tank. While using gasoline, the model can overcome another 190 kilometers. that is, the total variety of the version reaches nearly 700 kilometers.
Switching between CNG and gasoline mode occurs automatically, without driver intervention. Moreover, according to the manufacturer’s idea, methane is the main fuel, and gasoline is used only as a “backup” fuel. The only negative point is the fact that due to gas equipment, the luggage compartment capacity decreased to 455 liters for the liftback and 495 liters for the station wagon.
Sales of the new Skoda Octavia g-tec within the ECU market will start in September this year.
