The first sight will not reveal you are looking at one of the most efficient OCTAVIA cars. The CNG-powered version is as elegant, spacious, and agile as its petrol siblings. What makes the difference is hidden under OCTAVIA´s attractive body: two CNG tanks, engine modifications, Start-Stop system, regenerative braking, and multi-link rear axle.
Did you know that the consumption of CNG vehicles in m3/100 km is nearly the same as the consumption in litres of petrol? The OCTAVIA COMBI G-TEC consumes mere 5.4 m3 CNG/100 km and produces 96 g/km of CO2 emissions (approx. 25 % less than a petrol engine).
The OCTAVIA COMBI G-TEC is powered by advanced bi-fuel turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. The 81kW 1.4 TSI engine runs primarily on CNG, but its operation and range is enhanced by a 50-litre petrol fuel tank. Refuelling is smooth and clean with this OCTAVIA COMBI: both fuel fillers are under the very same flap.
When a vehicle is stationary, the engine continues to consume fuel and emit pollutants without delivering any benefits at all. This is where the Start-Stop system comes in, automatically switching the engine off when the car is at standstill, thereby instantly reducing fuel consumption.
During braking, the kinetic energy is transformed into heat, which is then uselessly radiated into the environment. To help you get part of this energy back, we’ve developed the brake energy recovery system, which uses an intelligent alternator to store the energy in the battery during deceleration.
