We’re dedicated to designing, building and selling the world’s best vehicles with your business needs and bottom line in mind. Propelled by innovation, our engineers are developing advanced technologies to improve fuel economy,
decrease emissions and a reduced our dependence on petroleum.
We already have 14 models that offer an EPA-est. 30 MPG highway, including
several hybrids. Just last year we introduced the dynamic new Volt1 – the world's
first extended-range gas-generated electric vehicle. But we're not stopping there;
we're expanding our range of alternative fuel technologies with Compressed Natural
Gas (CNG) and Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG). Plus other exciting options like
diesel, biofuels and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, which will help us continue to deliver
not only the world's best vehicles, but also the world's leading technology.
We’re dedicated to designing, building, and selling the world’s best vehicles with your business needs and bottom line in mind. Propelled by innovation, our engineers are developing alternative-fuel vehicles and advanced technologies to improve fuel economy and reduce our dependence on petroleum.
We continue to work efficiently so you can, too. Thanks to a committed research program, many of our models offer innovative engine advancements such as Active Fuel Management, clean-diesel technology1, and Spark-Ignition Direct Injection that help improve fuel economy without compromising performance. All are designed to help you run a smarter, cleaner and more cost-effective business fleet.
GM has 23 vehicle models that offer at least an EPA-estimated 30 mpg hwy2 or better:
One of the best ways to improve your fleet’s bottom line is to lower your fuel costs, and our bi-fuel Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra 2500HD and 3500HD can help. Both vehicles feature a Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) option.
The combined 17 GGE CNG and 36-gallon gasoline tank offer a maximum highway range of more than 625 miles13
Each truck uses a Vortec 6.0-liter V8 engine that allows you to seamlessly switch between CNG and gasoline. The CNG fuel delivery and storage system is covered under our 5-Year/100,000-Mile (whichever comes first) Powertrain Limited Warranty12 and is serviceable by Chevrolet and GMC dealers. Plus, all CNG system parts have GM service part numbers for broad availability, providing you with peace of mind that parts will be available to keep your vehicles on the road.
In addition to potentially lower fuel costs, they offer an impressive array of options and configurations, including standard- and long-box models in two- or four-wheel-drive options.
GM has several vehicle models that have CNG-powered versions. Express and Savana use a proven, 6.0L Vortec V8 engine with factory-installed hardened exhaust valves and intake/exhaust valve seats. These components are engineered to GM durability standards for gaseous fuel use.
The CNG fuel system is available on cargo and passenger full-size vans, in both regular and long wheelbases.
(UFM) Three-tank system offers a maximum highway range of up to 200 miles13. Underbody tanks allow for use of complete cargo area.
(UFP) Four-tank system offers a maximum highway range of up to 300 miles13. This system adds a single tank in the driver’s side of the cargo area, just inboard of the wheel well.
The bi-fuel Impala is part of Chevrolet’s growing range of manufacturer-engineered and- validated CNG vehicles, which includes the bi-fuel Silverado HD full-size pickups and dedicated CNG Express full-size cargo and passenger vans. All of these vehicles are backed by GM’s New-Vehicle and Powertrain Limited Warranties12.
The bi-fuel Impala offers owners the ability to reduce fuel costs, but without the worry of occasionally traveling outside the range of your CNG station. The engine is matched with an advanced 6-speed automatic transmission.
The Impala can seat five and offers 10 cu. ft.11 of cargo room in the trunk with the CNG fuel tank installed. The bi-fuel model will be available with 1FL and 1LT trims. Standard vehicle features include:
GM offers a 159" wheelbase 4500 Cutaway Van that has an LPG fuel system. Express and Savana use a proven, 6.0L Vortec V8 engine with factory-installed hardened exhaust valves and intake/exhaust valve seats. These components are engineered to GM durability standards for gaseous fuel use.
Two systems are offered:
In the quest to help reduce gasoline consumption, there are natural answers — biofuels, such as E85 ethanol16 and B20 biodiesel. These alternatives could help offset future vehicle energy demand.
More than 8.5 million of the 14 million FlexFuel vehicles on the road in North America are GM cars and trucks. We have built and sold more than 9.5 million around the world.
We offer multiple FlexFuel vehicle models, including:
All of our Duramax 6.6L V8 turbo engines are capable of running on B20 biodiesel and meet strict emissions standards. The Duramax powers the redesigned Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra heavy-duty pickups and is also available on the Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana full-size vans.
We believe electrically driven vehicles offer the best long-term solution for energy-efficient transportation.
The Chevrolet Volt is the world’s first mass-produced electric vehicle with the extended range capability. Its stunning design and advanced safety features are paired with a more efficient dual-electric motor and a 1.5L SIDI high-efficiency engine, allowing for a 38-EV mile17 driving range on a single charge and more than 380 highway miles of total range17. When the battery runs low, a gas-powered engine/generator seamlessly operates to extend the driving range.
Sold in Oregon and California, the Chevrolet Spark EV (EPA-estimated mpge 128 city, 109 hwy) takes the functionality, fun, and technology of the gas-powered Spark and amps it up to include best-in-segment torque at 327 lb-ft, which rivals many sports cars. You can reach zero to 60 in 7.2 seconds18 and get 82 miles of range19.
The Cadillac ELR, with an advanced electric drive system and onboard generator powered by gas, is the perfect balance of art and science and the latest example of our fearless approach to automotive innovation.
Our engineers continue to explore advanced future technologies similar to fuel-cell vehicles. We’re committed to innovations that make vehicles release water vapor instead of CO2 emissions from the tailpipe. We view hydrogen fuel cells as an important component to our advanced-propulsion portfolio.
