guys,

just read this news in auto monitor.

fiat india is conducting trials for a CNG variant of the palio nv to offer as a potential taxi in bombay.

the palio taxi willl be offered without central locking and power steering .

but the fact will still remain how fiat india price this cng version . if priced properly we could see a royal battle between the indica and the palio on the expressway !!

cheers

And if marketed properly, it will be a rage in the private segment too. CNG has some great potential that is as yet far from tapped. Once the end consumer learns of the benefits and CNG filling stations come up...its like an opportunity waiting to be realised.

Palio would make a great taxi..with that fantastic ride & build quality. Much better than indica but then again very few can beat TATA in pricing.
