Natural Gas Powered Skoda Citigo Crossing 9 Countries on €100
The little city runnabout known as the Citigo CNG emits just 79 grams per kilometer from its tiny 68 hp engine and car consumes only 2.9 kg or 4.4 m3 natural gas per 100 km. But one man is willing to bet it can be even more frugal.
Economy record driver Gerhard Plattner is undertaking a huge journey across 9 major European countries in just one week from Vicenza, Italy to the Swedish capital, Stockholm The journey is being undertaken on a budget of less than €100 to prove that motoring is still affordable.
“Natural gas has long since been on the automotive scene. Thanks to modern technology, CNG-fuelled cars today are just as lively and torquey as their counterparts with diesel or gasoline engines,” Plattner said before he sat back down behind the wheel to reach next destination in Rostock.
This Wednesday after 605km, the record driver Gerhard Plattner reached the third of five milestones in his ŠKODA Citigo CNG.
