2019 in numbers: gas in transport – the choice of European consumers


26 Feb 2020



Brussels, 26 February 2020 – Today, the Natural & bio Gas Vehicle Association (NGVA Europe) released statistics and numbers about gas vehicle registrations and fuelling station development in 2019.

Numbers not only show continuously growing sales of CNG and especially LNG fuelled vehicles, but also growth of corresponding fuelling infrastructure.

While there are 50% more LNG stations in Europe compared to 2018, LNG powered heavy-duty vehicle registrations nearly tripled since the same year. At the same time, after the first quarter 2019, where new vehicles were not available on the market due to the WLTP homologation process, passenger car registrations are at a new height.

NGVA Europe Secretary General Andrea Gerini commented: “These numbers confirm the ever- growing attraction of natural gas mobility for European consumers. This is the result of a mature gas vehicle technology with high engine efficiency and performance, widespread infrastructure and low total cost of ownership (TCO), but also great environmental benefits of gas in transport.”

Natural gas infrastructure and vehicles are fully compatible with renewable gas and therefore potent enabler of carbon-neutral mobility. Today, the usage of natural gas is the most cost-effective way to start a concrete path to decarbonisation across the multiple dimensions of the transport sector.
