Top 6 CNG cars in India under 10 lakhs

CNG powertrains have become quite popular in the past few years. This is because CNG is more affordable and petrol prices have shot up quite a bit. Because of this, people have started considering alternative fuels such as electric powertrains or CNG. The EVs are not the first choice for most people because of range anxiety and lacking charging infrastructure. This is where the CNG-powered vehicles step in. The CNG coverage is increasing rapidly and even if the car runs out of CNG, the car can still run on regular petrol which is available everywhere.
