Fiat is helping Italgas go entirely to methane-burning cars, delivering new fleet cars to the company’s locations in Turin, Rome, and Naples.

Fiat 500L, US gasoline version​

Italgas is, appropriately, the largest national gas distributor in Italy. The company will have the first all-methane corporate fleet, supported by 120 self-serve filling stations in 40 areas. The current company fleet has 2,500 vehicles; over the next year, they will be replaced by Fiat methane-powered versions (Panda, Panda Van, Fiorino, 500L, Doblò, Qubo, and Ducato).

Methane, when combined with biomethane, cuts carbon dioxide emissions by 43%, and slashes nitrogen oxides emissions by 94%; it also dramatically reduces harmful particulates. Fiat Chrysler has around a 45% share of the European methane car market, and claims that the Panda is the most popular methane-powered car ever made.
