Repsol is one of the world's leading LPG retail distribution companies. It ranks first in Spain, with four million active customers, and is the third in Portugal.
Our total sales amounted to 1,375,000 metric tons. Sales in Spain increased by 9%, mainly due to an increase in sales to distributors. In Portugal, sales reached 138,000 metric tons.
One of the most outstanding products of this business is AutoGas or LPG for auto vehicles, the most widely used alternative fuel in the world, with more than 26 million vehicles. Although in Spain its presence is still limited, sales grew by 8.1% in 2017, which confirms the increase in demand for this economical fuel that helps preserve air quality in cities.
In 2017, Repsol implemented various initiatives to promote the use of this fuel including, namely, the signing of agreements with leading automotive brands (Fiat, PSA Group, Ssangyong-Subaru, Opel, and the Renault Dacia Group) to promote the sale of these vehicles or the implementation to a program of commercial incentives to transform vehicles from gasoline to AutoGas.
