GM cargo vans cost $15,900 more with natural-gas option

05:19 AM

A few months ago, General Motors announced it would offer its full-size cargo vans to fleets with a natural-gas power option. Great idea, but now comes the price: another $15,900 tacked on to the price of a Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana full-size vans.

That means the total cost of either a 2011 Chevrolet Express or 2011 GMC Savana Cargo model, which starts at $25,980, would be $41,890 with the CNG option, GM says. Of course, compressed natural gas is far cheaper than gasoline at the moment, so the more that van is driven, the closer savings will get at eclipsing the extra purchase price.

GM thinks that it can score more sales by offering factory-offered CNG models rather than having business buyers have to send their new vans to outside firms for natural-gas capability:

"Our CNG vans come with a fully integrated CNG fuel system, a comprehensive warranty, emissions compliance and strong dealer support, all for one price," says Joyce Mattman, director of Commercial Product and Specialty Vehicles.

Each van also will be covered by GM's three-year, 36,000-mile new vehicle limited warranty and five-year, 100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty.
