The Volkswagen Assemblage is in talks with Exxon Mobil and Gazprom to promote natural gas powered cars.

Matthias Muller, VW’s CEO, told Austria’s ORF disseminate recently that the three companies were in discussions about the alternative fossil, characterizing it as another way to reduce CO2 emissions across the brand.

“We are now really trying to deem out of the box and find solutions that can be helpful at least in this transition period of 10 to 20 years,” Mueller said.

Usual gas powered cars are nothing new, and arguably don’t save that much CO2, but Audi argues that its e-gas is a unripened alternative.

E-gas is Audi’s synthetic methane. It’s made using electrolyzers that divulge 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 unbroken process is generated from renewable sources.

“This offer is our next impression in climate-neutral, long distance mobility,” said Dietmar Voggenreiter, Audi’s loaf of sales, in March. “Our promise to the customers is no compromises. The g-tron models are chic, sophisticated and progressive – like every Audi. And with Audi e-gas they are also deeply climate-friendly on the road.”
