Off-road UAZ "Patriot" will receive a bi-fuel version. The corresponding entry appeared in the Vehicle Type Approval for this model. As follows from the VTA, in the version UAZ-3163 with a manual gearbox, the engine can run on both 92nd gasoline and compressed natural gas. To do this, it will be installed the equipment on the vehicles under the Gemini brand.

A gas-fueled engine will lose some power: if a standard ICE produces 150 hp, then with HBO - 126 hp. The maximum torque will also decrease - from 235.4 Nm to 196.2 Nm. Obviously, these shortcomings will be brightened up by the opportunity to save due to lower fuel consumption and the cost of methane itself. In addition, the Gas balloon equipment installed at the plant usually undergoes the necessary after-sales service as a part of the scheduled maintenance. It is believed that it is more profitable and safer than the installed one by "garage way".

Versions of the "Patriot" with the "automatic" can still work only on gasoline. Recall that the UAZ in the line already has vehicles with gas equipment - commercial Pickups and Profi trucks, but they work on a propane-butane mixture. As AUTOSTAT previously reported, in the first quarter of 2020, UAZ sales in the Russian market reached 7,293 vehicles, which is lower by 6% than the figure for the same period of the previous year. The flagship SUV UAZ Patriot remains the bestseller of the brand.

Recall that in February of 2020, the current UAZ lineup was replenished with a special version of the UAZ “Bukhanka” called “Expedition” with additional off-road equipment. In March, the limited edition UAV Patriot Antarctic Edition SUV went on sale, and in the nearest future there will be a modification of the UAZ Pickup with an automatic transmission.
