About LNG Bus
  • Developed by Tata Motors, the 50-seater bus uses LNG branded ‘Taral’ and provided by Petronet LNG from its terminal at Puthuvype in Kochi. The 12-metre bus has features similar to the CNG buses plying in Delhi and Pune. A 420-litre cryogenic tank imported from the U.S. that can store 190 kg LNG is the speciality of the LNG-driven bus. The double-walled steel tank is placed in the rear of the vehicle and can store LNG in cool environs. A single filling can power the vehicle that has a 130 HP engine up to 600 km
