Know additional regarding the Tata Tiago CNG and Tigor CNG so far?
Though CNG-powered Tiago and Tigor are visible on our roads as standard vehicles, Tata has yet to explain which trims are eligible for the CNG kit. Aside from that, the Tiago and Tigor powered by CNG are unlikely to change considerably from the conventional vehicle. When compared to the well-equipped petrol and diesel versions, the CNG variant’s equipment list varies depending on trim level.
Currently, Tiago and Tigor are powered by a single gasoline engine of 1.2 liters and three cylinders. Even though the CNG models are expected to use the same engine, power and torque statistics may be slightly lower. Tata also intends to offer both manual and automatic transmission systems for the petrol-powered Tiago and Tigor, so even though CNG vehicles will most likely be manual-only.
Both models may have a few CNG emblems on the outside to set them apart from the rest of the lineup. The electric-powered Tigor is a variation of the Tigor. Since the Tigor will be India’s only sedan available in petrol, CNG, and electric variants, it will be the only one to offer a CNG option.
Tata Tiago CNG and Tigor CNG: competitors in India.
Maruti and Hyundai, as previously stated, have dominated the CNG market, with the former offering the widest range of CNG vehicles, beginning with the Alto and ending with the Ertiga MPV. The Hyundai Santro CNG and Maruti Wagon R CNG will compete against the Tata Tiago CNG. The Hyundai Aura CNG, which will compete with the Tigor CNG, is one of the two. Suzuki is also rumored to be creating CNG-powered versions of the Swift, Dzire, and Celerio to compete with the Tiago and Tigor, according to reports.
India’s possibilities for CNG-powered vehicles
Maruti Suzuki was among the first carmakers in India to recognize the potential of CNG, and their early investment has worked brilliantly. After Maruti, Hyundai entered the fray, and now Tata is competing for a piece of the action. With the price of gasoline at an all-time high, many car purchasers, particularly those who reside in locations where CNG is widely available, are opting for CNG-equipped automobiles. The government has also been trying to promote the use of compressed natural gas (CNG) because it is much cheaper to import and helps to offset the country’s high crude import expenses.
As of February 2019, there were 1,300 CNG stations across 143 cities, compared to 3,500 stations across 293 cities today, according to a study by the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM). The number of stations is expected to increase to 6,000 by 2025, and to 10,000 by 2030.
Tata Motors will become one of the few carmakers in the country to provide vehicles that can run on all types of fuels with the debut of its CNG line-up. The types of fuel include petrol, diesel, compressed natural gas (CNG), and electricity “as read and reported by www.autocarindia.com”.
