Maruti Vitara Brezza, Swift & Nexa range could get CNG option

At present, Maruti Suzuki offers CNG variants of the WagonR, Alto, S-Presso, and Ertiga.

As the market for alternate fuels grows, Maruti Suzuki is betting big on CNG products. According to a media report, the carmaker could introduce more CNG variants, including that of the Nexa range.

The demand for factory-fitted CNG models has been on the rise since the introduction of the WagonR S-CNG in 2010. It is said that customers are now demanding CNG options for the Vitara Brezza and Swift. Given the demand, CNG variants of the Baleno and Ciaz can't be ruled out either.

At present, Maruti Suzuki offers CNG variants of the Alto, S-Presso, and Ertiga. The Eeco, Tour S, Tour M and Super Carry LCV are also available with factory-fitted CNG kits.

In FY2017, Maruti Suzuki sold 75,000 CNG cars. In the last fiscal, this figure rose to 1,62,000 units. Maruti's total CNG car sales are expected to touch the 3 lakh unit mark by the end of FY2022.
