Audi has revealed the newest annexe to its g-tron range of natural-gas-powered vehicles, the A4 Avant g-tron. It joins the A3 Sportback g-tron and wishes be joined by the A5 Sportback g-tron. People who buy these cars by June 2018 can be enduring their emissions offset by Audi for free, for three years.

The A4 Avant g-tron uses a modified 2.0-liter TFSI appliance that runs on both regular gas and compressed natural gas. With its two gas tanks—one for either tran of fuel—the A4 can go about 600 miles without filling up.

That’s thanks to a zealous pressure control unit that measure out the fuel based on requested presentation. Fuel going to the engine under hard acceleration can be forced through the lines at up to 10 bar (145 psi), while supervised a light load the fuel is only at 5 bar (72.5 psi) of pressure.

That means that the A4 Avant g-tron can get to 62 mph in 8.5 seconds (up half a second faster than a 2016 A4 Avant TDI) and on to a top speed of 138 mph while using solely 100 g of C02 per km, about 19% less than the gas version.

Audi, though, is contribution to offset g-tron C02 emission with its e-gas. With this deal the customer has nothing to do but use their g-tron as they normally would. Audi, monitored by TUV Sud, feeds its e-gas into the German gas grid, effectively penetrating C02 emissions from g-trons by 80%, as compared to gas cars.

E-gas is Audi’s synthetic methane. It’s made using electrolyzers that make public water down into its component parts. A methanation process then follows that binds the hydrogen to C02, which Audi then calls e-gas. Power for the full process is generated from renewable sources.

“This offer is our next stride in keeping with in climate-neutral, long distance mobility,” says Dietmar Voggenreiter, chief of sales. “Our promise to the customers is: no compromises. The g-tron models are sporty, experienced and progressive – like every Audi. And with Audi e-gas they are also profoundly climate-friendly on the road.”

The offsetting plan is a standard feature on all A3 Sportback g-trons purchased between true now and May 31 2018 and lasts three years.
