Maruti Suzuki has just launched the CNG variant of the all-new Celerio with a price tag of Rs 6.58 lakh (ex-showroom).

The all-new Maruti Suzuki Celerio was launched towards the climax of 2021 and was deemed the most fuel-efficient car in India. The Celerio's CNG model, which features a 60-litre CNG tank, is said to have a fuel economy of 35.60 kilometres per kilogramme.

A 1.0-litre three-cylinder K10C petrol engine with 66PS and 89Nm of torque powers the new Maruti Suzuki Celerio CNG. The model generates 56PS and 82Nm of torque in CNG mode. This engine is only available with a five-speed manual gearbox and is only offered in one variation, the VXi.

The Maruti Suzuki Celerio is a sub-four-metre hatchback with a high roof design. Most notable is the heavy chrome running across the grille and the chunky detailing in the bumper. A large but crisply styled glasshouse remains with simple body panels and contrasting black alloy wheels. The rear again carries forward this soft-edged look with the compact taillamps and rounded boot lid.

A 7-inch touchscreen with Android Auto/Apple Carplay, semi-digital instrument cluster, 15-inch alloy wheels, push-button start, steering-mounted controls, 60:40 split back seats, and motorised mirror adjustment are among the significant features. The Maruti Suzuki Celerio comes with all of the government-mandated safety measures, as well as hill-start assist. In addition, the redesigned construction increases stiffness and collision safety.

Shashank Srivastava, Senior Executive Director (Marketing & Sales), Maruti Suzuki India Limited said, "Maruti Suzuki has been a pioneer in the country to offer factory-fitted CNG cars. We have the largest portfolio of 8 green models on the road and have sold around 9,50,000 S-CNG vehicles. Owning a factory fitted S-CNG vehicle comes with standard warranty benefits and convenience of Maruti Suzuki's service network spread across India, that our customers find very comforting. With green mobility in focus, we have witnessed 22 percent CAGR increase in our CNG sales in the past five years. This is a testimony to the customers accepting technologically advanced, eco-friendly, and safe CNG mobility solutions."
