The CNG option is now available as an after-market fitment, at the dealer level through a tie-up that the company has entered into with Shrimankar Gas Car Services, the Indian distributors for Bedini CNG kits, Italy. Customers now benefit from a dual fuel option as the car retains its 37 litre petrol tank, besides the 60 litre CNG tank. The car has a driving range of 140 kms on CNG, and can be switched onto the normal petrol mode in case a CNG refill is not possible. The vehicles come with the normal unlimited km. manufacturer’s warranty for 18 months.
The new offerings will be available at dealerships in Mumbai, the National Capital Region (NCR), which includes Delhi, Faridabad, Ghaziabad, NOIDA and Gurgaon, and progressively in the key cities in Gujarat. The company is also working on LPG offerings on its car range which will be launched soon.
