This up-to-date motor appeared at Duster, and soon also available on Sandero, Sandero Stepway, Logan and Logan MCV. It offers a higher level of performance with a maximum torque of 170 Nm from 2,000 rpm, enabling versatile use while reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

Dacia is the only car manufacturer to offer LPG throughout its range (except Dokker), under the name ECO-G. The environmentally friendly ECO-engine emits around 10% less CO2 than average petrol engines.

The vehicle equipped with two separate tanks, one for petrol and one for LPG, and with both them, the car has driven range is 1000 km. Also, Dacia ECO-G vehicles can access underground car parks because of the safety features built into the system (safety valve, non-return valve and a filling level limited to 80%).

LPG integration on a Dacia vehicle is an operation carried out directly in the plant. It means a simple order without additional delay for the customer. Besides, the engine has a single contact person for the warranty and maintenance in the network, trained in this technology. For drivers, a car with such a power unit will not bring many difficulties. Switching from one side to the other instantly, you can implement the transition mechanism in two ways. First, manually using a special switch in the selected mode. Second, automatically when the liquefied petroleum gas tank is empty.
