Maruti Suzuki launches CNG variants of Alto, Eeco, WagonR, Estilo & SX-4


We told you a few days back that Maruti Suzuki was all set to launch CNG variants of five vehicles from its product portfolio. Well, here we are then! The CNG variants of the Alto small car, Eeco MPV, WagonR and Estilo tallboys &  the SX-4 sedan were launched yesterday in Delhi by the hands of by Mr. Jairam Ramesh, Hon’ble Minister of State (Independent Charge) Environment and Forests in the presence of senior government dignitaries and Maruti Suzuki management team. Since the launch was a private one, we won’t be able to bring you any photos just yet.

The CNG variants are not the conventional retro-fitted CNG running cars that you see on the road. Instead Maruti has incorporated a new technology called ‘intelligent-Gas Port Injection’ or i-GPI. Maruti Suzuki claim that this technology ensures more power, a peppier drive experience and better fuel efficiency as compared to a retro fitted CNG system. The i-GPI supposedly brings the running cost of the vehicle to Rs. 1 per kilometer! Hmmm.

The five aforementioned cars will be available for sale on in Delhi NCR, Mumbai and Gujrat for now, but will be spread throughout the country in the coming months. The prices (in lakhs, ex-showroom, Delhi) for the five vehicles are as follows:
