SCOOP! Maruti to launch Ertiga CNG

Maruti is planning to give a further boost to its Ertiga MPV by introducing a CNG variant soon.

According to reliable sources, the company will announce and even start rolling out a greener variant of the Ertiga within 2-3 months.

India’s largest carmaker is aiming to sell nearly 1,000-1,500 units of the Ertiga CNG every month. Currently, it is sold in petrol (1.4-litre, 4-cylinder) and diesel (1.3-litre, 4-cylinder) variants, and the Ertiga MPV sells, on average, 5,000-6,000 units per month.

Ertiga sales have been filling in the vacuum caused by the dip in sales of other passenger cars from Maruti over the past year.The Ertiga currently faces the closest competition from the Mahindra Quanto and Renault Duster. However, the growing MPV/SUV segment lacks any CNG variant so far and Maruti is planning to tap into this space by making the Ertiga the first CNG-powered MPV in India.
