    Maruti Suzuki Swift, S-Presso, Ignis & Other Small Cars To Get CNG Option

    by Monalisa Saha on Thursday, Sep 05 2019

    Currently, six models in the Maruti Suzuki portfolio come with a factory-fitted CNG kit. These are -- Alto, Alto K10, WagonR, Celerio, Dzire, and Ertiga. We expect the carmaker to extend the CNG option on cars like the Baleno, Swift, Ignis and the upcoming S-Presso.

    It remains to be seen if the carmaker will introduce CNG fuel option in cars like the S-Cross, Ciaz and XL6 or not. Maruti Suzuki has no plans to offer a BS6 diesel engine on any of its cars at the moment. For models like Vitara Brezza and S-Cross, which are currently available with a diesel engine only, the carmaker will offer a petrol engine going forward.

    Offering the CNG option on cars like the Swift, which can still be had with a BS4 diesel engine, makes complete sense as it can be seen as an alternative to the diesel engine. CNG is clean to run and cost efficient as well.

    What may hurt Maruti Suzuki in the long run is the availability of CNG. At present, CNG as an automotive fuel is prevalent in Delhi-NCR, parts of Gujarat and Mumbai only. While the government has announced its plans of granting license to 10,000 CNG stations across the country, it remains to be seen how quickly can the infrastructure develop.
