What is g-tron?
At Audi, the term g-tron stands for models that can run on both natural gas and petrol. Audi g-tron, together with Audi e-gas, combines sportiness, design, and long-distance mobility with renewable energy.
Do I need to readjust as a driver?
The Audi g-tron models combine familiar sportiness, progressive design, and superior long-distance mobility without the driver having to adapt. The acceleration is as dynamic as an Audi that runs solely on petrol. The low-lying gas tanks, which weigh 50% less than steel cylinders thanks to the Audi lightweight principle, do not interfere with your driving experience. The difference compared to a normal Audi: a second fuel gauge for the CNG tank, significantly lower fuel costs (as of January 2017), and good environmental awareness, because in addition to the aforementioned CO₂ reduction, there is no dust creation during the combustion of Audi e-gas.
How does the e-gas cycle work?
With Audi e-gas, Audi has developed its own fuel, and is operating the world's largest power-to-gas plant in Emsland. Audi e-gas is generated from renewable energies, water, CO₂, and residual materials. That makes it a synthetic, CO₂-neutral fuel. Audi g-tron drivers thus don't have to drive to a specific e-gas filling station. Instead, the fossil natural gas consumed by g-tron drivers is replaced by almost climate-neutral Audi e-gas in the total gas network, restoring the balance. This means that e-gas users can enjoy the renewable fuel in comfort.
