The brand new Opel Corsa 1.4 LPG ecoFLEX develops 66 kW/90 hp and comes straight from the factory with a bi-fuel capability. Specifically aimed at cost-conscious customers, this model is an ideal choice in the small car segment because fuel costs plummet by almost 50% compared to gasoline due to the low price of LPG. Moreover, it has a particularly attractive entry-level price: the three-door model is now available from just 14,745 euros and the five-door model from 15,495 euros.
The Corsa LPG is not only extremely cost-efficient, but also kinder to the environment. With the LPG four-cylinder engine under the car’s shapely hood is known for its super-clean combustion characteristics, the new Corsa consumes just 6.9 liters per 100 km over the combined cycle and emits only 113 g/km CO2 – around 13% less CO2 than in gasoline operation. The nitrogen oxide emissions are even up to 80% lower.
“With the 1.3 CDTI, which consumes just 3.1 liters diesel, and our brand-new 1.4 LPG ecoFLEX, we have two real ‘eco-champions’ in the Corsa line-up. Once again, they both show how important energy efficiency and CO2 emissions reductions are for us in all model ranges,” said Peter Christian Küspert, Opel Group Vice President Sales and Aftersales. “But these models aren’t only attractive for especially cost-conscious drivers. They also offer many features that go far beyond what’s normally found in the small car class.”
Another benefit of the new-generation LPG Corsa is that, like all Opel LPG models, it comes ready for bi-fuel operation ex-works. The driver can switch between LPG and gasoline by pushing a button. This means a driving range of up to 1,200 km is possible without having to stop to refuel. Today there are around 7,000 LPG filling stations in Germany and more than 35,000 across Europe.
