Tata Motors recently announced that its new ‘range of CNG Cars’ will be unveiled on January 19th. While the company hasn’t revealed which models will be available later this month, new CNG versions of the Tiago are expected. Unofficial reservations for the new CNG car have already begun.
Tata’s Tiago CNG will be the company’s first CNG vehicle to be launched in India this year. Furthermore, the company is expected to expand its CNG lineup to include other models such as the Tigor subcompact sedan, Altroz premium hatchback, and Nexon subcompact SUV.
Tata Motors is unlikely to make any significant changes to the Tiago CNG model once it is released, with the exception of its new CNG kit. In order to distinguish itself from its regular ICE counterpart, the new kit will be accompanied by a separate iCNG badging. While the technical specifications for the Tiago’s factory-fitted CNG kit have yet to be released, it is expected to return a mileage of around 30 km per kg.
The same 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder petrol engine is expected to power the car under the hood. The engine, which is mated to a five-speed manual transmission, has a maximum output of 85 BHP and peak torque of 113 Nm.
In terms of competition, the new Tata Tiago CNG will face off against rivals such as the Maruti WagonR CNG and the Hyundai Santro CNG, among others.
In the last few months, there has been a significant increase in demand for CNG vehicles in India. In the eight months leading up to November 21, a total of 1,36,357 CNG cars were sold.
