Seat Mii Ecofuel
SEAT has announced that it will be unveiling a CNG (compressed natural gas) version of its Mii citycar in Geneva.

Borrowing the powerplant from Volkswagen’s eco up!, the Mii uses a 1.0 litre three-cylinder engine producing 50 kW (67 hp) and 90 Nm of torque, and needs just 2.9 kg of natural gas every 100 kilometres, while generating a mere 79 g/km of CO2. The Start/Stop function, low rolling resistance tyres and Brake Energy Recovery system also help to drive consumption down.

One kg of natural gas is the equivalent to around 1.5 litres of petrol, meaning the Ecofuel’s costs around half as much to run. Although, if need be, it can also run on petrol.

Starting at €12,050 in Germany, the Mii undercuts its Volkswagen equivalent by €900, making it the most inexpensive CNG model on the market today.
