SEAT President Luca de Meo and the President of the Association Française du Gaz Naturel pour Véhicules (AFGNV), Jean-Claude Girot, have signed a strategic agreement to promote joint innovation projects and expand the use of natural gas in the area of mobility in France. This long-term partnership is a further step in SEAT’s strategy to spearhead growth in the segment of cars fuelled with compressed natural gas (CNG) and consolidates the company as an international benchmark.
SEAT President Luca de Meo emphasised that “with this agreement we reaffirm our commitment to developing compressed natural gas as an alternative fuel. Compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles actively contribute to efficient mobility in cities, reducing emissions and fulfilling new environmental criteria.”
The AFGNV is an organisation which gathers French public, economic and industrial stakeholders, and its goal is to promote the development and use of natural gas and biogas as fuels in France. Its members include the Association Française du Gaz, vehicle manufacturers, businesses in the gas, automotive and mechanical sectors, and natural gas distributors and suppliers.
AFGNV President Jean-Claude Girot explained that “we are pleased that SEAT has joined our association, which rallies and mobilises a sector of the future with a view to sustainable growth. Their expertise will enhance that which is contributed by the 90 current members.”
