SKODA Introduces the First CNG-Powered SUV

The SKODA KAMIQ comes with a choice of five different engines offering power outputs that range from 66 kW (90 PS) to 110 kW (150 PS). Customers can choose between three petrol versions, one diesel or – as a first in SKODA’s SUV family – a 1.0 G-TEC. This efficient and low emission engine, which will follow in the fourth quarter of 2019, runs on natural gas.

“Although the SKODA KAMIQ’s petrol and diesel engines already demonstrate excellent consumption, we still opted to offer the even more eco-friendly 1.0 G-TEC. We are therefore producing the first ŠKODA SUV to run on efficient CNG,” said Christian Strube, SKODA AUTO Board Member for Technical Development.

The portfolio of engines available for the SKODA KAMIQ comprises five modern and efficient versions with direct injection and turbocharging. The CNG variant of the three-cylinder 1.0 G-TEC delivering 66 kW (90 PS) is the first engine in a SKODA SUV to run on natural gas. When running on compressed natural gas (CNG), the engine generates lower CO2 and NOx emissions compared to conventional fuels.

As standard, all engines come with a 6-speed manual gearbox (5-speed for the 1.0 TSI outputting 70 kW / 95 PS). A 7-speed DSG is available as an option for all versions with power outputs of 85 kW (115 PS) or more.
