  • Opel Zafira 1.6 CNG Turbo: First Turbo CNG Van

    The most powerful natural gas-propelled vehicle premieres in December when Opel presents its first Compressed Natural Gas compact van with a turbo-charger at the Bologna motor show (December 5 to 14, 2008).

    Maybe in Europe, but I believe a Crown Vic is more powerful. Here's another article: http://www.greencarcongress.com/2008...intr.html#more

      The Crown Vic had 175hp when new, and the Ford 5.4L trucks/vans had even more. It probably is true about the most powerful in Europe though.

        I suppose you're correct. A CNG Crown Vic is my daily driver. And while it feels like a v-6 compared to the gasoline version, it certainly has more oomph than a 1.6 GM turbo.

        The phrase could be true if they were to qualify it, perhaps "most powerful OEM natual gas light duty vehicle in production"

          I'd like it if they made it dedicated CNG and a bigger fuel tank. The GGC article is misleading at first they say it is bi fuel meaning biomethane and methane, but it has a puny little gasoline talk.
