The Last Word—Three Big Predictions 1 By 2018, 3.8% of all medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles manufactured in Western Europe will feature natural gas powertrains. The installation rate in the medium- and heavy-duty truck market will reach 3.4%, while medium- and heavyduty buses will reach 12.7%. 2 A €8.3/MMBtu price level for natural gas in Europe is expected in 2018 by Frost & Sullivan. Given current pricing levels and forecasted prices; and LNG and CNG offering €0.4/DGE cost advantage over diesel fastest payback is expected for LNG in long-haul trucking and CNG in short-haul bus routes. 3 By 2018, 90% of all natural gas powered buses manufactured in that year will feature spark ignited technology, while 80% of CNG trucks will feature spark ignition and 60% of LNG trucks will feature compression ignition technology.
