Maruti Suzuki Wagon R CNG coming by October 2010


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 Wagon R CNG

Maruti Suzuki India would soon have CNG versions of almost every car model it is selling. The Wagon R, Ritz, Estilo, Alto and the SX4 could get CNG versions soon.

It is reported that the first Maruti to get the CNG treatment, would be the Wagon R and then the other models would follow in their CNG avatars. The Wagon R CNG could be launched by October 2010. With rising fuel prices, the market for CNG vehicles, which are economical and eco-friendly, is very lucrative than ever.

I V Rao, Managing Executive Officer, Maruti Suzuki India

We have been working on the CNG technology for the last two years and it is almost ready. These products are of high quality and there will be no compromise on safety standards. Most of the parts are imported from Europe, US and Japan. There will be some cost to it.

The CNG version of the Maruti Wagon R is expected to cost about Rs. 70,000 more than its petrol version. Maruti Suzuki would use the latest iGPI (intelligent gas port injection) system which electronically controls the injection of gas into the manifold directly hence eliminating power losses.

CNG versions of the Ritz, Estilo and the Eeco are expected to follow the Wagon R CNG soon. Maruti would be looking to launch these vehicles before the Chevrolet Beat LPG’s arrival to have an edge.
