Research Report For Auto Transport

In feature number of passenger cars, commercial vehicles and buses running on CNG in Moscow is expected to grow from current <1,000 vehicles to 30,000 vehicles by 2013 if Decree of Moscow City Government 553-PP from 29.06.2010 “Current Status and Further Measures to Promote the Use of Compressed Natural Gas as a Motor Fuel for the Automotive Transport in Moscow” is fully implemented within 2010-2012 indicates latest analytical report published by Gravitas Research.

Moscow’s vehicle parc reached 3.2 million passenger cars, 0.35 million of commercial vehicles and 0.05 million buses (including public buses) in 2009, ecological impact of intensively growing automotive parc is catching attention of Moscow City Government as total share of auto transport contribution to air pollution in the city reaches 82 per cent. Moscow’s auto parc accounts for almost 10 per cent of the overall Russian passenger car parc and around 7 per cent of the overall commercial vehicle parc. In 2010, vehicle density in Moscow re

ached 340 passenger cars & CV per 1000 people compared to country’s average of 270 passenger cars & CV per 1000 people.

 The solutions to the deteriorating urban environment in Moscow is transition of auto transport to alternative fuels such as CNG. Drastic growth in the number of CNG vehicles operating in Moscow is expected to be driven by expansion of CNG refueling network, transition of public and Governmental fleets to CNG, and attractive incentives given to private auto fleet owners. Russia being currently on the 15th place in the World by the number of CNG vehicles is expected to advance rapidly to overtake Armenia, Egypt and Bolivia with total fleet of CNG vehicles exceeding 130,000 by 2013.
