The vehicles, which run on either gasoline or compressed natural gas, were all model year 2012 and included a Hyundai Sonata, Ford Mustang GT, Honda CR-V, BMW X3, GMC Acadia Denali and a Chrysler 300C.

Sounds good if it doesn't cost a fortune.

They'd be great if the price sticker compared with more 'run-of-the-mill' models.

It would be nice to have options - and in the same vehicle.

Just another indication that the movement is away from oil.

If they really want to get Americans onboard with this, they need to approach NASCAR and other racing organizations. They need to create new standards to show that we will not lose anything by going to alternative fuels.

Interesting, you can use CNG where available and existing gas infrastructure where it isn't. Really cool idea; hope they can make it work, and cost effective.

“Of all the natural gas vehicles all over the world,” Clay says, “only 1 percent are in use in the United States.”

I've seen ONE in southeast Louisiana--it was a full-size Coca-Cola truck I saw on the streets of Slidell in May. I haven't seen it since.
