Dacia Duster has received a LPG version

Dacia is present this week at the Brussels Motor Show with its parent company Renault to present an important novelty in the range.

The Romanian manufacturer has announced the introduction of a 100 horsepower version powered by LPG (liquefied petroleum gas), which is initially available only on Duster.

The version has been renamed the Dacia Duster Eco-G and has an LPG tank and includes a number of safety systems for the SUV to meet safety standards and access including underground parking.

Dacia Duster Eco-G can run on either petrol or LPG, and with both tanks full reach a range of over 1,000 kilometers. Switching from petrol to LPG and vice versa is done manually by pressing a button or automatically if the LPG tank is empty.

Dacia mentions a maximum torque of 170 Nm from 2,000 revolutions per minute, and the engine emits about 10% less carbon dioxide compared to the gasoline equivalent engine. Also, Dacia states that the Eco-G version has fuel costs up to 30% lower than for the petrol version and up to 8% lower than for the diesel version.

For the moment, Dacia mentions that the new LPG Duster engine is available in France at a price similar to the petrol version (12,490 euros).

The year 2020 will be an important one for Dacia, which will launch at the Paris Motor Show in September of the  new generations of Sandero and Logan. According to unofficial information, Sandero will borrow the platform and some of the Renault Clio's engines, while Sandero Stepway will have a 130 hp hybrid version.
