Vauxhall cuts LPG conversion prices in move to start market
10/06/1998 in NEWS
But the manufacturer is now prepared to kickstart the market for alternative fuels and demonstrate its commitment to the environment by selling the dual-fuel range at below cost, charging a supplement of £1,950 for the bi-fuel range compared to their petrol equivalents. This means the Vectra LS 2.0 LPG now retails at £17,395 on the road, the Omega GLS 2.0 LPG now costs £20,825, and the Combo Merit 1.4 van now hits the road at £10,636, plus VAT.
The new premium is still substantially more than aftermarket conversions, which typically cost between £800 and £1,500, but Vauxhall claims the sophistication of its manufacturer-engineered conversion technology and procedures far exceeds aftermarket alternatives. In addition, it is offering a full 12-month warranty on the 2.0-litre LPG Vectra and Omega and Combo 1.4 van.
