Nissan introduces new CNG-powered Navara in Thailand

26 July 2013

Nissan introduced the new Nissan Navara CNG, a pick-up truck powered by Nissan’s first bi-fuel compressed natural gas (CNG) engine. Locally installed under Nissan manufacturing standard, the new Navara CNG offers high performance and improved fuel efficiency while being fully supported by Nissan’s standard warranty.

The new Navara CNG is powered by a QR25DE engine, which generates 154 hp (115 kW) at 5,200 rpm with a maximum torque of 242 N·m (178 lb-ft) at 4,400 rpm. Engineered for advanced CNG operations, it includes technologies such as an advanced floating gas injection system to maximize the efficiency of gas consumption and an advanced electronic system to effectively control the injection of gas, minimizing the noise created through gas injection. The new Navara CNG will reduce running costs by two-thirds compared to a conventional gasoline engine.

The 140-liter CNG fuel tank is located on the bed, proven to have the highest tolerance from crash impact tests and severe weather conditions, Nissan said.
