A natural gas vehicle (NGV) is a vehicle that uses compressed natural gas (CNG) as a clean alternative to other fuels. While a growing number of vehicles are now being manufactured to run on CNG, many existing gasoline-powered vehicles can be converted to allow the use of CNG.

Here are a few facts about Natural Gas Vehicles*

  • 153,000 NGVs on U.S. roads
  • 15.2 million worldwide.
  • 1,564 CNG fueling stations in the U.S.
  • 50 manufacturers = 100 NGV models
  • CNG 1.50–$2.00 less per gasoline/diesel gallon equivalent (gge) 
  • U.S. NGVs use about 500 million gallons of CNG rather than crude
  • NGVs meet the strictest emission standards, including California’s AT-PZEV standard.
  • NGVs are as safe or safer than traditional gasoline or diesel vehicles.
