General Motors prepares the stage to launch the all-new 10th generation Chevrolet Impala next summer. The new impala is said to be bi-fuel, running on both gasoline and compressed natural gas (CNG). The car will be the second member to the club of “Producer manufactured CNG cars”, alongside the Honda Civic.
The car will have a push button allowing the driver to manually switch between gasoline and CNG. It is set to have up to 500 miles of driving range; 350 miles on gasoline and 150 miles on natural gas.
According to Dan Akerson, Chairman and CEO, General Motors, the bi-fuel version is an attempt to reduce carbon emissions and reinstate their commitment to conservation.
