Best CNG cars available in India under ₹10 lakh
In the wake of the sky-high petrol and diesel prices and rising tight regulations on conventional motor fuels, demands for alternative fuel options that are cleaner and cheaper at the same time are increasing. One such fuel is the CNG that is being used in several passenger cars in India with factory fitted cars. Maruti Suzuki, Hyundai and Tata Motors have already introduced a host of passenger cars with factory-fitted CNG kits.
These cars are capable of running on both petrol and CNG, which increase their running range significantly and at the same time, the owners can choose from any of the fuel as per their convenience. These CNG cars are available across different price segments.
