Opel has announced plans to offer a more economical bi-fuel version of the Adam which can also run on LPG.

After introducing a turbocharged, three-cylinder 1.0-liter engine for its city car, Opel is back with the 1.4 LPG ecoFLEX Adam variant that can run on liquefied petroleum gas and gasoline. The engine develops 87 HP (64 kW) and has a fuel consumption of 6.9 liters / 100 km (34 mpg US or 41 mpg UK) with CO2 emissions of only 112 g/km when running on LPG.

The LPG tank has been installed under the floor in the rear which means cargo capacity has been preserved. The tank can hold 35 liters and enables the Adam to have a range of approximately 500 km (310 miles) in the combined cycle, while together with the gasoline tank it will do around 1,200 km (745 miles).

Already available on order, the Opel Adam 1.4 LPG ecoFLEX has a starting price in Germany of 16,150 EUR (VAT included).
