Maruti claims that it has witnessed a 22 per cent CAGR growth in its CNG vehicle sales over the past five years. “Maruti Suzuki has been a pioneer in the country to offer factory-fitted CNG cars. We have the largest portfolio of eight green models on the road and have sold around 9,50,000 S-CNG vehicles," said Shashank Srivastava, Senior Executive Director for Marketing and Sales at Maruti Suzuki. "The launch of All-New Celerio S-CNG will take us a step closer to our ambition of spearheading the mass adoption of green vehicles in India."

Maruti Suzuki Celerio CNG specifications:

The CNG variant of this popular hatchback comes with the same design and features as the petrol model. The only change is the company fitted CNG tank to the car. It gets power from a 1.0-litre dual-jet dual VVT K-Series engine that is paired with a 60-litre capacity CNG tank. Maruti says the Celerio CNG has a certified mileage of 35.60 kms per kilo.

Maruti Suzuki Celerio CNG technical specifications:

Celerio CNG offers 82.1 Nm of torque which is slightly lower than the 89 Nm on offer in the petrol-only variant. Power is also slightly less at 56 Nm vis-a-vis 64 hp. But where the Celerio CNG makes perfect sense is with its lower running cost. While in petrol-only option, the mileage is an impressive 26.68 kmpl, the CNG variant delivers 35.60 kms to each kilo.
