Fiat India plans to launch a CNG version of the Palio and my question to them is why? oh, why? Fiat India is looking at multiple fuel options for its product range. The Palio CNG will be launched in 2009 but we think Fiat should concentrate on launching the Grande Punto first.

“Company would launch a CNG version of the Palio in 2009. This initiative is in line with the Indian automotive industry’s move to shift to environment-friendly fuels, which promise less operating cost and lower emissions. For instance, Indica, Santro, Wagon R, Ikon and Marina have both CNG and LPG options.” said Mr Rajeev Kapur, CEO, Fiat India.
