GMC offering More Compressed Natural Gas Options for Fleets

General Motors is expanding its fuel-efficiency with new bi-fuel versions of the 2015 GMC Sierra heavy-duty and compressed natural gas (CGN) versions of the 2014 GMC Savana passenger van.

The vehicles were announced at the Green Fleet Conference & Expo in Phoenix, which focuses on clean technologies and alternative-fuel vehicles for fleet operators.

The vehicles will be available next year.

Compressed natural gas is one of the cleanest fuel alternatives, reducing ozone-forming emissions by an average of 80% compared to gasoline combustion.

The system helps customers significantly reduce their environmental impact and can help cut fuel costs by roughly half compared to gasoline.

GM says that many customers can recoup the initial price of the CNG system within a few years.

According to a press release from General Motors, more than 99% of the natural gas used in the U.S. comes from domestic and other North American sources.

2014 Savana CGN:

The Savana passenger van can carry up to 15 people and still have room for cargo and equipment.

The CGN versions of the 2014 GMC Savana passenger van joins other cargo vans that GM has offered to fleet operators for years.

2015 GMC Sierra Bi-Fuel:

The bi-fuel versions of the 2015 GMC Sierra will support the leading capabilities of the current Sierra, while supporting CNG or gasoline.

Separate fuel-tanks enable drivers to switch between the fuel systems at the push of a button, while an automated system switches to gasoline when the CNG tank is empty.

GM estimates that the bi-fuel trucks will have a total driving range of 650 miles.
