The Balearic island is changing its public transport model by promoting Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) for regular interurban public passenger transport. Indcar has been the bodybuilder chosen by Grupo Ruíz (one of the 3 companies that were awarded the interurban transport on the island) for the manufacture of the 9 gas-powered minibuses that will run in Mallorca. Compressed natural gas is a real alternative for sustainable mobility, since it reduces CO2 emissions and eliminates the emission of particles and sulphur oxides. The commitment of the Balearic Government to the use of compressed natural gas as a substitute fuel for diesel in the interurban transport lines of Mallorca, will allow the Balearic Islands to be a national benchmark in sustainable mobility and respect for the environment.

Advantages of CNG

Compressed gas is a real alternative for sustainable mobility, with low CO2 emissions and that does not emit particles or sulphur oxides. Its implementation contributes to improving air quality in cities and reduce their noise level. CNG vehicles allow driving in high pollution scenarios, thanks to the fact that they have the ECO card of the General Directorate of Traffic (DGT), which is a great advantage of access to large cities when faced to possible traffic restrictions. CNG vehicles are suitable for all types of mobility: urban, interurban or long-distance driving.

In addition, these vehicles are also competitive in cost since, apart from benefiting from discounts or rebates on the road tax, NGV represents savings of 30% in cost per kilometer compared to diesel and 50% compared to gasoline, both for light and heavy vehicles.
