This is great! I think it will help to decrease pollution and energy woes.

I hope this is the beginning of a new trend and that factory fitted CNG/LPG or warranty support for use of bio-diesel becomes standard in India.

And what would the kit itself weigh, in addition to the 12 kg of CNG that we fill up? I suspect that if this kit is retrofitted to my old Santro (assuming it is possible), the performance of the car even with the petrol option will come down due to increased weight. And CNG is not widely available either in Mumbai or Pune.

Thats LPG. I wonder how hard it can be for an OEM to offer both LPG and CNG. At least 80% of the hardware can be common between the two. This one seems like a New Delhi special.

The company has introduced four variants of CNG Santro -- XK (non A/c), XL, XO and AT (automatic transmission).

No disclosure about the prices of the variants except XK.

I guess the price difference between two consecutive models of both Petrol and CNG would be the same, so its easy to guess the prices of all CNG variants.

Default CNG Santro launched

Hyundai launches CNG Santro





Hyundai Motor India on 4 July launched alternate fuel variant of its flagship hatchback Santro-CNG at a starting price of Rs3,25,361 (ex-showroom Delhi). [That's Rs59,631 more than the petrol variant]

The CNG powered Santro would be pitted against Marutiís Wagon R LPG duo, which comes at a base price of Rs3.49 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

The CNG kit would be retrofitted at the dealership level and the alternate fuel variant has been introduced only in Delhi. The company would source the CNG kits from auto components maker Minda Auto Gas.

The company has introduced four variants of CNG Santro -- XK (non A/c), XL, XO and AT (automatic transmission).

CNG Santro would also come with a two year, unlimited mileage warranty and the company would also offer an additional warranty for the same period on the CNG kit and fitment.

The CNG cylinder has a capacity of 12 kg and the running cost is estimated to be in the range of Re1 per kilometre.

Santro despite being one of the best small cars, still the Santro CNG thread did not have many posts. Seems like the CNG option was not welcomed by many. The boot space may be lost but price savings are going to be significant.

I had installed a 14 kg cylinder in my 2003 Santro ZIP in 2005. The best fuel efficiency i got from it was 0.65 Rs/KM. Normally it was 80-90 in peak summers. The boot was all gone but the spare wheel could be removed by double folding the rear seats. Only thing i noticed was that the rear suspension had been pressed a lot. But i came to notice it only when i uninstalled it before selling the car. Overall i feel its a nice option only if

1. You live in Delhi region.
2. You drive alone 80% of time.
3. You dont travel a lot (>50 kms) as otherwise youll have to stand at pumps for atleast 15-30 minutes daily

Hyundai is giving a warranty of 2 years on CNG Santro but 3 years+1 year extended warranty on petrol model.

Isn't that strange?
