A nationwide plan for converting 1.4 million gasoline-powered public transport vehicles and private cars to CNG hybrids has gained impetus.
Close to 200 conversion centers in 25 provinces are each equipped with 150,000 domestically-made kits and tanks, head of CNG department at the state-run National Iranian Oil Products Distribution Company said.
“In the past four months 136,000 vehicles have registered with belonging to the NIOPDC, of which 52,000 are public vehicles. The rest are either private-owned cars that have to pay for the conversion or are dilapidated vehicles not eligible for the fuel change,” Mohammad Hossein Baqeri was quoted as saying by ILNA.
