From entry-level hatchback to MPV, here are top 5 cars that get company-fitted CNG kits

Highlights

  • Maruti Suzuki offers the widest range of CNG cars in India
  • Hyundai India too offers CNG versions of Grand i10 Nios and Aura
  • The Ertiga is the only MPV that gets a company-fitted CNG kit in India

Despite the government and manufacturers' shifting their focus towards electric cars, the fact remains that we are still far from achieving complete electrification. While the country has shifted to the more stringent BS6 emission norms, the older BS4 vehicles already on the road will still remain there and the carbon emission caused by these cars is ever increasing. Today the most affordable way of owning a vehicle that reduces your carbon footprint is to own a CNG car. While the most common way is to retrofit an existing petrol car with an aftermarket CNG kit, we do get company-fitted CNG models as well and here's a list of the top 5 CNG cars in India right now.
