What to expect

In India, Maruti Suzuki and Hyundai are the only two companies that offer factory-fitted CNG kits in their passenger vehicles. Soon Tata will be the next big name in the CNG market. The brand is already testing the CNG variants of Tigor and Tiago, with their launches set to be in January 2022. More recently, a disguised Tata Punch was seen testing with the CNG variants of Tiago and Tigor, which makes us believe that the new SUV might soon get a factory-fitted CNG option.

The design and the engine will all be the same, and the only difference will be the fuel. We will continue to see the 1.2L Revotron engine which produced 86PS of power and 113Nm of torque when fed petrol. Being converted to CNG, the engine will produce less power and torque but will be a lot less harsh on the environment. Tata Punch CNG can catch a lot of attention in the CNG market as it will be the first compact SUV to run on clean fuel.
