Commenting on the company's recent sales feat, Shashank Srivastava, Executive Director (Marketing & Sales), Maruti Suzuki India said "We see CNG as a technology that has set a new benchmark in green fuel mobility. Maruti Suzuki offers its customers the widest options of factory-fitted CNG-powered cars. At the same time, CNG is becoming one of the most preferred alternative fuels due to its economic cost of running (as compared with the high prices of petrol and diesel) and improved CNG filling infrastructure. With the Government's clear focus on expansion of CNG outlets in the country, we are confident of greater acceptance of factory-fitted CNG vehicles, even in challenging times."

The vehicles are equipped with a micro-switch which assures that the vehicle goes off and does not start during the CNG fuel filling process.
