“This will enable us to make full use of Russia’s competitive advantages, considering its natural gas opportunities,” the premier said in Nizhny Novgorod on Tuesday.
“Natural gas-fueled cars are among the most promising modes of transport. They consume two times less fuel than petrol or diesel-fueled cars,” Medvedev said.
A switch to natural gas-based motor fuel will make many Russian industrial branches more competitive, he added.
