MONTH PAYBACK

NGVs Offer a Fast Return on Investment

Due to lower fuel and maintenance costs, NGVs offer an 18 to 24 month payback. As production increases and fuel tank prices come down, vehicles will become less expensive and enjoy a shorter payback period. The greatest savings are currently being seen in heavy-duty, high mileage fleets.

Lower Maintenance Costs

NGVs are easier and cheaper to maintain than diesel trucks because they have:

No DPF
(Diesel particulate filter)

No DPF 
regeneration or waste disposal

No SCR
(Selective catalytic reduction)

No DEF

(Diesel emission fluid)

Comparable All-Electric Vehicles cost 2-3x more than NGVs

While actual cost depends on the application, an all‐electric medium- or heavy‐duty vehicle usually costs two to three times the amount of a comparable vehicle powered by a 0.02 g NOx natural gas engine. As noted above, funding heavy-duty NGVs delivers greater emission reductions than similar projects involving all-electric trucks, and they offer the best ability to reduce emissions on a large scale because the funding will extend further.
