CNG-powered Sonic and Cruze are as green as they come…going green that is!

Crazy Diamond Performance is known for taking some of Chevrolet’s popular small cars and turning them into compressed natural gas (CNG) monsters. The company’s latest creations: the CNG-powered Sonic and Cruze.

The Michigan-based company recently received approval from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for these two new CNG-powered vehicles, making them a terrific, eco-friendly choice for transportation.

The CNG-powered Sonic and Cruze will target consumers looking to cut fuel costs and their carbon footprints. Currently, CNG is sold for around $2 per gallon, which is similar to current gasoline prices, but the more eco-friendly gas’s average CO2 emissions are around 25% lower than gas-powered vehicles.

Each of the two models will have a range of about 300 miles on a single tank of compressed natural gas, giving it a farther range than many gasoline-powered vehicles.

The price for the CNG-powered Cruze will start at a low $26,000, while the turbocharged version goes for about $28,000. If you’re interested in learning more about Chevrolet’s small cars, make sure you stop in to Hutch Chevrolet today and see what options we have to offer you!
