Recent Growth, Adoption Shows Natural Gas Vehicles Are a Proven, Cost-Effective Option

Even with 2020 being an extreme outlier year, the growth of both natural gas fuel and natural gas vehicles (NGVs) showed no sign of slowing. As confirmed by the latest independent industry report, the State of Sustainable Fleets, and backed up by hundreds of survey responses from real-world fleets across the U.S., NGVs continue to demonstrate both superior environmental and economic performance — even when measured against gasoline and diesel.

The notion that significant emission reductions can be accomplished only by sacrificing vehicle performance or paying more for clean fuels does not hold true. This year’s findings confirm that when mature clean vehicle technologies, including natural gas, are matched to the best-equipped sectors for those technologies, fleets really can have it all.
