Ulyanovsk plant will soon begin the accepting of orders for the flagship UAZ Patriot SUV with a bi-fuel engine. This was reported to “Rossiyskaya Gazeta” in the press service of the enterprise, by adding that prices for the "economical" novelty will be announced closer to the start of sales. As a reminder, UAZ Patriot CNG with plant gas equipment was presented back in April of 2016, but the model was certified only the previous year.

The SUV is equipped with a 2.7-liter ZMZ-409051 engine that runs on both gasoline and compressed natural gas (methane). At the same time, the power of the unit was reduced from 150 to 128 hp, and the torque - from 235 to 196 Nm. During tests carried out in 2016, it turned out that the bi-fuel SUV is 24% more economical than usual, but it was possible to save money not due to lower consumption, but due to more affordable fuel. Then the UAZ "Patriot" CNG mileage with full refueling of three cylinders (55 liters each) was 250 km.

At present, the average cost of methane is 19.48 rubles per cubic meter. It should be noted that the model range of the Ulyanovsk Automobile Plant already has a model with gas equipment: this is the UAZ "Pickup", which runs on gasoline and a propane-butane mixture. As previously reported by AUTOSTAT, according to the results of the first two months of 2021, Ulyanovsk Automobile Plant sold 2882 cars in the Russian market, which is lower by 37% than a year ago.

As a result, the market share of UAZ was 1.3% versus 2.1% a year before, according to AEB.
