Maruti Suzuki not only aims to bring in electric vehicles, but also more models based on CNG, biogas and ethanol mixed fuels. "While we expect the Indian market to grow toward FY2030, we also expect that an increase in total CO2 emission amount is unavoidable, regardless of the reduction in CO2 emission from products. We will challenge to strike a balance between increasing sales units and reducing total CO2 emission amount," Suzuki said.
