Mitsubishi announced about its wish to make Magna only LPG car. Production will start early next year.
It has already made $25mln deal with Origin Energy for supplying 700 LPG cars. Such policy is to lead to extra sales on top of company’s petrol-powered range.
Ford already has a gas-only range of Falcon sedans and station wagons.
Ford charges about $800 more for its gas-only Falcon compared to a petrol car. A dual-fuel car sells for about $2000 more than a petrol-only car.
Origin has placed its first order for 30 vehicles and expects to order 140 more for early next year.
Origin will buy a range of vehicles including the Magna, Verada and Lancer sedans and wagons, Express vans and Triton utilities. Now Origin’s fleet of LPG cars is 17% and it tends to raise this level.
