Maruti Suzuki Ritz, Estilo to get CNG versions
Naveen Nallappan, Hi. I am Naveen, a very simple person with few needs and greats aspirations hoping to make a dent in the world I came to be in. I have always been extremely passionate about anything with wheels and wings and I seem to have a good appreciation of how cars work technically and how the car business works. As far as my love for cars go, more than power, speed and acceleration, I love how perfectly cars have come to fit into our lives and how beautiful moments in life are spent in cars. That's my brief introduction. Stay tuned to IAB! Drive safe, advocate safe driving!
Maruti Suzuki India would be launching CNG versions of the Ritz and the Estilo in the coming months, reports Goa on Wheels. Till now the only passenger vehicle with CNG technology Maruti has produced is the Alto.
Maruti intends to boost its share in the CNG vehicle segment which is likely to grow rapidly with the increase in fuel prices recently.
The Maruti Ritz has been selling well and the CNG version would further strengthen its market share. As far as the Estilo is concerned, a CNG version wouldn’t exactly revive the Estilo, but would help delaying its demise.
Maruti could also be introducing CNG versions of its other models depending upon the response to the Ritz and Estilo CNG. The Maruti Eeco could be the next to get a CNG version.
CNG is available on in Mumbai, Delhi and Gujarat as of now, but more CNG filling stations would be installed in major metros in the coming months, as the number of vehicles plying on CNG is rising everyday.
Chevrolet recently launched a CNG version of the Aveo sedan and more GM models would be getting CNG versions soon.
