CNGVA Launches Updated Website Highlighting the Benefits of Natural Gas Vehicles in Canada

Ottawa, ON

The Canadian Natural Gas Vehicle Alliance (CNGVA) has launched a new bilingual website to provide Canadians with information to encourage greater use of natural gas fleet vehicles in Canada’s transportation sector.

Natural gas is a clean and affordable transportation fuel for vehicle fleets. Today, natural gas vehicles operate in Canada in a variety of applications including medium and heavy-duty trucks, transit, refuse, marine, rail and off road. is the go to place for all Canadians looking for information on natural gas use as a transportation fuel, and on natural gas engine technology. The website is a consolidation of both the site, and, a collaborative initiative between industry and Natural Resources Canada to support greater use of natural gas for transportation.  The new site offers information on environmental benefits, payback and performance, driving range, fuel savings, fleet success stories, energy use, properties, and safe handling.


“Whether for heavy trucks, buses, ships, or rail locomotives, natural gas can reduce fleet fuel costs and lower emissions. CNGVA’s new website builds on the valuable collaborative work between CNGVA, industry, and Natural Resources Canada to raise awareness about the benefits of this emerging fuel option for vehicles. It also will provide the necessary information for fleets thinking of converting.”
