The Indigo eCS emax will begin arriving at dealerships by the middle of November, while dealers would start accepting bookings in the next few days. Powering the Indigo eCS CNG is the 1.2-liter petrol engine which produces 65 hp and 100 Nm of torque while running on petrol. While consuming CNG, power and torque outputs are reduced to 56 hp and 90 Nm respectively.

The switch from petrol to CNG (or vice-versa) can be made using a button located in the cabin, while the instrument cluster gets an added green color ‘CNG’ light to indicate when the CNG mode is switched ON.
