Seat has announced plans to introduce the Mii Ecofuel at the Geneva Motor Show.
Described as the company's lowest-emitting production car, the Mii Ecofuel is equipped with a 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine that has been specially designed to run on compressed natural gas (CNG). It produces 68 HP (50 kW) and 90 Nm (66 lb-ft) of torque which enables the model to average 2.9 kg CNG/100km with CO2 emissions of 79 g/km. More importantly, the low price of CNG means the running costs are approximately half those of a Mii with a petrol engine.
Like the Volkswagen Up! eco, the Mii Ecofuel can also run on petrol. This is a handy feature as CNG refilling stations aren't as plentiful as traditional gas stations.
The Mii Ecofuel will be priced from €12,050 in Germany which makes it the least expensive CNG model on the market.
