Tata moters CNG plan

New Delhi: The sale of CNG cars is in full swing in the country. In recent times, a considerable jump has been registered in the sale of CNG cars amidst the rising prices of petrol and diesel. The situation was such that in the last financial year, where there was an increase of 27% in the sales of cars, there was an increase of 50% in the sales of CNG cars. Maruti Suzuki is the largest manufacturer of CNG vehicles in the country. The company sells almost all its models in CNG.

Looking at this growth, now Tata Motors is also gearing up to increase its share in the sale of CNG cars. Tata Motors says that the company can double its CNG models in the coming days. At present, Tata Motors is selling its four models Tiago, Tigor, Punch, and Altroz in CNG, while the company plans to bring other models in CNG as well.

Will Nexon be the next CNG car?
According to a report by ET Auto, the share of CNG cars in the current sales of Tata Motors is 6%, which the company wants to increase to 10-12% by the end of this financial year. For this, the company can launch CNG versions of some models already being sold. Let us tell you that Tata’s best-selling car Nexon has been seen many times with a CNG testing kit. This suggests that the company’s next CNG car could be the Nexon. At the same time, the company can also consider CNG versions of Harrier and Safari in the coming times.

Target to sell so many CNG cars
Currently, Tata Motors is selling around 12,000 CNG cars every month. At the same time, the company has also announced its target regarding CNG cars. The company intends to sell around 1.5 lakh CNG cars every year. Currently, around 30,000-35,000 CNG vehicles are being sold every month and surprisingly private car buyers account for 80 percent of the sales.

With this plan of Tata Motors, Maruti Suzuki will get direct competition. Currently, Maruti Suzuki is selling 13 of its models in CNG, while CNG cars account for 26% of the company’s total passenger car sales. At the same time, Hyundai Motors may also get shocked by this plan of Tata. Hyundai said that in the last financial year, two-thirds of its sales were from CNG cars, which was 63,058 units.
