Volkswagen acknowledged these days, with the voice of its Managing Director, Reiner Mangold, that they are working to develop the world’s first turbocharged compressed natural gas (CNG) engine that could get 150hp from a small 1.4 TSI model. It will be used to equip Passat CNG early in 2008 while Golf and Touran will get it later, by the end of the year.

Considering that the cost of petrol is about 50% higher than compressed natural gas which is sold for a little less than €0.90 per liter, I am sure there would be a lot of people to pay for a Volkswagen Passat CNG with such performances. The only problem would be its price, because you can be sure that’s going to run up.
