Fiat Automobiles has officially confirmed the arrival of the new Grande Punto Natural Power. The new version introduces double petrol-methane fuel and arrives in a moment when alternative fuels are experiencing a huge request.
The strong points of the Grande Punto methane are definitely the automony of 310 km, through two 84 litre gas tanks, CO2 emissions of the 1.4 litre engine are Euro 5 ready at 115 g/km.
The Grande Punto Natural Power is also cost effective, thanks to state incentives for cars that have less than 120 g/km of CO2 emissions. This means the car will cost about 12,300 euros (less 2,800 from the state grants), and although we can’t expect grand performance with its 70hp and 104Nm of torque at 3000 rpm, you can at least drive around knowing you’ve made a relatively environmentally friendly choice. Maximum speed is 156 km/hr and acceleration to 100 km/hr is achieved in 16.9 seconds.
