Maruit intended to launch CNG operated cars in Indian market in next year. It is believed that the 'Alto' will be the first car which will be CNG operated. So in this line the company has put on hold working on LPG car models. It is told that this decision is taken due to increasing customer interest in the CNG fuel technology. Maruit Suzuki India Chairman R C Bhargava said that the company paused manufacturing LPG models and put all efforts to make CNG variants. The first CNG operated car will be launched in 2010. We do not want our customers to wait in long queues and suffer because of lack of distribution network. We hope that the distribution network will strengthen by 2010 and at that time we will roll out the CNG cars, Bhargava said. Bhargava, however, declined to name the model which would hit the roads on the CNG mode first.
Meanwhile, sources said MSI is looking at launching the CNG version of Alto in 2010, followed by other cars.
