VW has unveiled the world’s first CNG-gasoline turbo engine for the VW Passat.

Volkswagen is set to introduce the world’s first turbocharged engine that can run on both gasoline and compressed natural gas (CNG).

The magazine quotes the managing director of Volkswagen Individual, Reiner Mangold, as stating that a Passat 1.4-litre TSI with an engine that can also run on compressed natural gas will be announced in early 2008.

After the initial release of the new engine in the Passat, Germany’s most popular fleet market car, it will be introduced in the Touran minivan, Caddy delivery van and Golf hatchback.
