The DEDST CNG fitment can be dealer installed on the Hyundai Grand i10 as well as Xcent models and is covered under the company warranty.
Adding a lucrative option on its popular Grand i10 and Xcent models, Hyundai has introduced CNG fitment with DEDST (Dual ECU Dynamic Sequential Technology) in the Indian market. The CNG kit comes as an optional fitment on the petrol variants of the hatchback. Power continues to come from the same 1.2-litre Kappa 2 engine but is detuned to churn out 71 PS and 100 Nm of torque, paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox.
Hyundai is providing a certified CEV CNG kit which is a sequential unit tuned for petrol cars. The dual ECU technology system comes with separate injectors which help deliver optimal gas flow to the engine for lag free performance. The kit can be retrofitted on any variant of the Grand i10 or Xcent compact sedan at Hyundai’s authorised dealerships or service centres and does not void warranty provided on the vehicles.
The DEDST CNG kit comes with a dual system that automatically switches to CNG from petrol after driving a couple of kilometres and vice versa once the CNG gas is exhausted. The running cost on Hyundai models can be expected to come to around Rs. 2/- per km while an ARAI certified mileage is rated at 24 km/kg on the Grand i10. This is the fourth fuel option to be offered on the Grand i10 in addition to the petrol, diesel and LPG range.
Both the Hyundai Grand i10 and Xcent draw power from a 1.2-litre Kappa 2 petrol motor producing 83 PS and 116 Nm of torque while diesel power comes from a 1.1-litre CRDi unit churning out 71 PS and 160 Nm of torque. The Grand i10 also comes with an LPG option powered by a 1.0-litre Kappa petrol engine tuned to produce 67 PS and 90 Nm of torque. ARAI certified mileage figures stand at 18.9 km/l, 24 km/l and 20.3 km/l for the petrol, diesel and LPG options respectively.
