Tata Motors finally launched the CNG variant of its premium hatchback Altroz on Monday after showcasing the car at the Auto Expo 2023 in February this year. Christened as Tata Altroz iCNG, this comes as the latest entrant in the homegrown automaker's CNG-powered product lineup as well as in the CNG-powered premium hatchback segment, where it competes with rivals like Maruti Suzuki Baleno CNG and Toyota Glanza CNG.

The Indian market is witnessing an increasing number of cars coming with factory-fitted CNG kits. The sky-high petrol and diesel prices, tightening regulations, and growing concern about vehicular emissions and their impact on the environment are fuelling demand for CNG cars. Adding to that are the factors like affordability and higher mileage of CNG as compared to petrol and diesel. Maruti Suzuki and Hyundai have already advanced in this segment, while Tata Motors too is catching up fast with its series of CNG cars. The Altroz iCNG is the latest addition to the list.
