One of the main trends witnessed in the CNG Vehicles market in Europe is the
increasing number of bi-fuel vehicles. In recent years, consumers have begun to convert
their gasoline vehicles into CNG vehicles. The conversion is done by installing CNG
components in a gasoline vehicle. The CNG acts as the primary fuel source of the vehicle
and the gasoline acts as a back-up. On the dashboard of the vehicle, a fuel selection
switch is installed that allows consumers to select the kind of fuel they prefer to run
their vehicles. Bi-fuel vehicles are gaining momentum as these vehicles guarantee that
there is an adequate fuel reserve between visits to CNG fuelling stations, and thus
consumers do not have to depend totally on natural gas.

According to the report, one of the main factors driving the market is the cost
benefits of using CNG. The financial advantages of running a vehicle using CNG compared to
gasoline/diesel are considerable. This is mainly due to public incentives and reduced tax
rates as well as the lower cost of CNG compared to oil.

Further, the report states that one of the main challenges is the high cost of CNG
vehicles. CNG vehicles are significantly costlier than traditional gasoline or diesel
vehicles. The initial purchase price of an unsubsidized CNG heavy-duty truck is between
extremely high compared to an equivalent commercial diesel-fuelled truck.
