New Delhi/IBNS: Taking forward its commitment to offer the widest range of green vehicles to its consumers, Maruti Suzuki India Limited on Friday launched the S-CNG variant of the BS6 compliant Big New WagonR. Introduction of WagonR with BS6 compliant CNG is aligned to the Company’s Mission Green Million, announced the Auto Expo-2020.
Shashank Srivastava, Executive Director (Marketing & Sales), Maruti Suzuki India Limited said, “Maruti Suzuki has consistently endeavored to offer sustainable mobility options to customers. With the announcement of Mission Green Million, we have strengthened our commitment towards boosting green mobility in the country. The 3rd generation WagonR is hugely successful and continues the iconic journey of brand WagonR with more than 24 lakh customers. Strong on looks and performance, the new factory fitted S-CNG variant offers a perfect balance of drivability, high fuel efficiency, enhanced safety and unmatched convenience.”
Initiating its green journey with CNG vehicles, a little over a decade back, Maruti Suzuki now offers an unmatched range of green vehicles. Having already sold one million green vehicles (including CNG, Smart Hybrid vehicles), Maruti Suzuki, under its ‘Mission Green Million’, aims to sell the next 1 million green vehicles in the next couple of years, spearheading their mass adoption across the country.
The launch of Maruti Suzuki’s S-CNG vehicle range is aligned to and complements the Government of India’s vision of reducing oil import and enhancing the share of natural gas in the energy basket of the country from 6.2% now to 15% by 2030. The Government is working to rapidly increase CNG fuel pumps network in the country.
