Natural Gas: Driving Change at the Denver Auto Show

March 15, 2013

Colorado's early adoption paves way for rapid growth in natural gas vehicle market


(DENVER) - America's Natural Gas Alliance (ANGA) is displaying several automobiles fueled by clean, affordable and abundant natural gas as the exclusive representative of compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles, at the Denver Auto Show March 20-24, 2013.


Representatives from ANGA and Western Energy Alliance member companies will be available throughout the show to talk about the economic and environmental benefits of NGVs and the options available to consumers who are interested in purchasing one or converting an existing vehicle.


Among the vehicles ANGA will display at the show, being held at the Colorado Convention Center, will be a 2013 Chevrolet Silverado and Tahoe and a Honda Civic. Natural gas vehicles also will participate in the Green Car Parade at the Colorado State Capitol on Sunday, March 17.


Colorado is among the leaders in the nation in adopting these vehicles. There are nine CNG fueling stations available to the public in the Denver area alone, and fueling up with natural gas can save consumers approximately $1.25 per gallon equivalent of gasoline. NGVs offer lower operating costs with the same performance as vehicles fueled by gasoline – all while using an inherently cleaner fuel. There are currently more than 800 NGVs already registered in the state.
