PGO Hemera – CNG or not?

French car maker PGO has released the details of the Hemera. The classic Porsche inspired design is due to go on sale in early 2009 but there seems to be some confusion as to the fuel it will use. Autobloggreen is saying the car is:

Powered by a 2.0-liter four cylinder engine from fellow French automaker Peugeot that’s been tuned to run on compressed natural gas.

However the official PGO Hemera brochure indicates the fuel consumed is 95 RON unleaded and that the fuel capacity is 42 litres. No options are listed for CNG. In a car that weighs 980kg it is unlikely to have dual fuel tanks.

The performance and economy figures, based on 95 RON unleaded are reasonable thanks to its light weight. Acceleration from 0 – 100kph takes 7 seconds and it uses 11L/100km around town and 6.5L/100km on the highway.
