SEAT has handed over a vehicle running on compressed natural gas (CNG) to the Port of Barcelona, to promote the use of this new technology. The hand-over, the first concerning a vehicle of this nature to an institution, has been formalised in the presence of Joan Colldecarrera, Deputy President of the Port, and Andr¯¯ Koropp, Automotive Institutions Manager at SEAT. This vehicle hand-over is the result of an agreement between the Port of Barcelona and SEAT. The car is a SEAT Mii Ecofuel, equipped with two CNG tanks with a total capacity of 11kgs supplying an Otto-cycle engine, and offering a range of 380 kilometres in gas-mode. Additionally, it has another 10-litre 95-octane premium petrol tank used as back-up when the gas supply runs out. All in all, the SEAT Mii Ecofuel has a range of 600 kilometres.
