Maruti Ertiga CNG Coming...

Recommended Posts

Maruti Suzuki could launch the Ertiga CNG as early as next week. The CNG powered version of the Ertiga is expected to use the 1.4 Liter K-Series petrol engine, converted to run on CNG. The 1.4 Liter K-Series petrol engine outputs 94 Bhp-130 Nm and a similar power and torque output could be delivered on CNG too. The Ertiga CNG will come with a supplementary petrol tank, a handy addition that will give the MPV its dual fuel moniker. Variants of the Ertiga MPV in CNG-Petrol guise are said to be priced about 30,000 rupees higher than the equivalent petrol variants. However, only LXi and VXi version of the Ertiga CNG might go on sale.

The 10 kilogram capacity of CNG tanks on most cars delivers a range of 200-300 Kms, making a higher number of refueling trips necessary when compared that on petrol or diesel cars.

Would be interesting to see where this CNG tanks find itself as the Ertiga already lacks any luggage space with all seats occupied.

Completely agree!

i feel there is enought room to fit a 10 KG cylinder in Ertigas boot with all three rows available for sitting. If an M800 can have a CNG than Ertiga can too.

That's not what I meant. A Maruti 800 is not a family mover or a family vacation vehicle ( Most of the times), the Ertiga is. People travel distances in the Ertiga with the family and having a cylinder in the already small boot can be a tedious exercise making Ertiga a 5 seater rather than a 7 seater.
