The country’s largest carmaker Maruti-Suzuki on Friday launched CNG variants of five of its models including the entry-level Alto and the range topping SX4.
The other models to gain the clean fuel technology include the SX4, WagonR, Estilo and Eeco. The Alto CNG is priced at Rs. 3.23 lakh while the SX4 CNG costs Rs. 7.47 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
The launch of these CNG variants is aimed at increased market share, which has dipped below 50 percent. The CNG variants are expected to sell well in cities with CNG supply and also become favourite amongst taxi operators.
