The CNG version is Rs. 75,000/- more expensive than the regular petrol variant of the S-Presso. It was first showcased at the Auto Expo 2020.
With the diesel engines getting discontinued, Maruti Suzuki is betting big on CNG for a greener future. They currently have the largest portfolio of factory fitted CNG cars. India’s largest carmaker has sold already sold one million green vehicles including CNG and Smart Hybrid vehicles. In the next couple of years with ‘Mission Green Million’, they aim to sell another one million green vehicles.
With the introduction of CNG, the S-Presso has further strengthened its place in its segment since the Renault Kwid doesn’t offer factory-fitted CNG yet.
