a van fitted out with CNG

Bürstner unveils an ecological alternative with the Eliseo Gaz Naturel, a converted van concept equipped with an engine running on natural gas (CNG).

German manufacturer of camper vans, caravans and campervans belonging to the Erwin Hymer group, Bürstner unveils its novelties for the 2021-2022 season, with many new models: among them, the Bürstner Eliseo Natural Gas is, as its name suggests, a converted van that can run on natural gas (CNG), an economical and ecological alternative to Diesel or electric.

More precisely, this concept of converted van, based on a Fiat Ducato carrier and derived from the Eliseo C 543, is equipped with a hybrid CNG (compressed natural gas) engine of 136 horses, which operates mainly on natural gas, but which is supplemented by a breakdown gasoline engine.

Bürstner Eliseo Natural Gas: 400 km of autonomy

The vehicle is equipped with five natural gas tanks placed under the floor, with a total capacity of 36 kg (220 liters). Therange is 400 km, and the engine can then automatically switch to gasoline for emergency troubleshooting, with a top speed reduced to 90 km / h and a small backup tank of 15 liters.

Eliseo Natural Gas emits practically no particles, very little nitrogen oxide (NOx), and CO emissions2 comparable to those of gasoline or diesel vehicles. The use of biogas makes it possible to eliminate CO emissions2. Taking into account its low consumption and the price of gas, Bürstner announces that the running cost of a CNG vehicle is only about 60% of that of a gasoline vehicle.

No marketing date has yet been announced for this Bürstner Eliseo Gaz Naturel, as demand is still weak to date for leisure vehicles fitted with alternative engines.
