Let’s take a look at the upcoming CNG cars in India and what the manufacturers have to offer in their existing models which will help them to undercut the competition.
The prices of petrol and diesel are rising constantly, which is compelling people to switch to other alternatives. The CNG and electric cars are the alternatives but as of now, the CNG option is much more diverse and developed. Furthermore, CNG provides better fuel economy and the improved refilling infrastructure is boosting sales of CNG cars in the Indian market. The government has also been promoting the upcoming CNG cars in India. Therefore, a lot of manufacturers are gearing up to produce CNG variants of their existing models.
Maruti Swift CNG
Maruti has been the leader when it comes to manufacturing CNG fitted cars. Swift CNG will come with a 1.2-litre petrol engine clubbed with a CNG kit. The currently available petrol powered engine produces 89 bhp of power and 113 Nm of peak torque. Swift CNG will be more fuel efficient and promise a mileage of 23 kmpl.
Maruti Dzire CNG
Maruti Dzire comes with the same engine which is found in the Swift. It comes with a 1.2-litre petrol engine producing the same power figures as the Swift and will be coupled with a CNG kit.
Tata Nexon CNG
Tata Nexon has three engine options but the CNG kit is likely to be equipped with the 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine which produces 86 bhp of peak power and 113 Nm of peak torque. It will be much more fuel efficient than its petrol counterpart.
Tata Tiago CNG
Just like the Nexon, Tata Tiago will come with a factory-fitted CNG kit and will be mated to the 1.2-litre petrol engine which produces 86 bhp of peak power and 114 Nm of torque. However, there would be a marginal drop in performance.
Tata Tigor CNG
Just like the Tiago, Tata Tigor will come with a factory-fitted CNG kit and will be mated to the 1.2-litre petrol engine which produces 86 bhp of and 114 Nm of torque. However, there would be a marginal drop in performance.
Honda Amaze CNG
Honda Amaze will also come equipped with a factory-fitted CNG which will be coupled with the 1.2-litre petrol engine which produces 88 bhp and 110 Nm of torque.
Toyota Innova Crysta CNG
Toyota Innova Crysta CNG is currently in the testing stage for the CNG variant. The kit will be mated to the 2.7-litre VVT-I petrol engine which produces 163 bhp and 245 nm of torque. The fuel efficiency will increase significantly with a marginal drop in power.
So these are the much-anticipated CNG cars that will hit the Indian auto market in India. Get all the automobile updates at Car Jasoos.
