Opel has recently announced its plans to offer a more economical bi-fuel version of the Adam which can also run on LPG.
After having introduced a turbocharged, three cylinder 1.0-liter engine for its city model, Opel is back with the 1.4 LPG ecoFLEX Adam variant that can run on LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) and gasoline also. The engine produces an output of 87 HP (64 kW) and has a fuel consumption of 6.9 liters / 100 km (34 mpg US or 41 mpg UK) with CO2 emissions of only 112 g/km when running on the gas.
The good thing is that the LPG tank has been installed under the floor in the rear side which means cargo capacity has not been reduced and the same remains intact. The tank can hold up to 35 liters and this enables the model to have a range of approximately 500 km (310 miles) in the combined cycle, while when combined with the gasoline tank it will do a range of approx. 1,200 km (745 miles).
The company is currently accepting orders of the Opel Adam 1.4 LPG ecoFLEX, and it comes with a base price of 16,150 EUR (inclusive of VAT) in Germany.
