GAZ presented a new modification of "GAZelNext CNG"


Gorky Automobile Plant presented a new modification of the light commercial vehicle GAZelNext CNG, equipped with an upgraded gas-petrol engine EvoTech 3.0. The increase in the working volume of the power unit up to 3 liters (compared with 2.7 liters in the previous version of the engine - EvoTech 2.7) has increased the power up to 120 hp when driving on gasoline (when driving on compressed gas - 109 hp), and the maximum torque is up to 252 Nm (225 Nm when driving on compressed gas), reports the press service of GAZ.

As noted, compressed gas is the most cost-effective type of fuel used in commercial transport, its usage ensures a reduction in operating costs by 40-50% (depending on the mileage and features of a particular model) compared to gasoline and diesel fuel.

An important design feature of the upgraded EvoTech 3.0 engine is the use of a cast-iron cylinder block instead of an aluminum block installed on previous versions. This made it possible to reduce the thermal load and increase the stability of the power unit at high temperatures. The changes affected other components, including crankshaft and camshaft, cylinder head and piston. The new design provides for the possibility of installing a dual-circuit air-conditioning system for minibuses and two compressors for refrigerated vans.

Four gas cylinders with a total volume of 33.2 (all-metal van) and 41.6 (side modifications) cube m. are installed on the vehicle. The range of the vehicle is up to 750 km, including 300 km - on gas. The gas equipment produced by the Italian companies Emer and OMVL is certified according to the UNECE Regulations No. 110. The multi-level engine safety system includes a high-speed valve (limits gas leakage in case of damage to the gas pipes), a fire valve (provides gas release when the temperature exceeds 100 degrees Celsius ), a safety valve (provides the release of gas when the pressure exceeds 300 bar).
