In addition to expanding electromobility, the Volkswagen Group is building on new models powered by natural gas. In the past, Volkswagen offered bivalent solutions with natural gas and petrol due to the scarce CNG filling stations. The new generations of the Polo and Golf are delivered with three natural gas tanks. The range of the new Golf TGI has increased by a good 80 km compared to the previous model.
