India’s largest car maker, Maruti Suzuki India is all set to see more CNG models being launched in the coming years. At present the company has five such CNG vehicles including Alto, WagonR, Estilo, Eeco and SX4 and has decided to add more considering the rising need to improve the quality of air pollution and being out better and highly efficient vehicles with zero emission.
“The five models with CNG option launched by Maruti Suzuki have been received well by customers in areas where the fuel is available. We plan to launch more vehicles with the CNG option. Government support is required to make CNG available across the country. Adequate CNG needs to be allocated for automotive use,” R C Bhargava, Chairman, Maruti Suzuki, said.
Maruti Suzuki is at present concentrating on bringing out electric and hybrid vehicles for their Indian customers which will be cost effective and hence appealing. Mr. Shinzo Nakanishi, CEO and Managing Director of Maruti Suzuki India said that the company was successful in bringing out both SX4 and electric Eeco out of which SX4 hybrid cars were used at last year’s Commonwealth Games in New Delhi.
