Maruti Suzuki announced their Green Mission Million at the Auto Expo 2020. To honour this announcement, Maruti Suzuki launches the S-CNG version of the BS6 compliant New WagonR. This is a step forward for the Maruti Suzuki in its plan to provide the widest range of green vehicles for the consumers.
The company initiated their Green Mission journey a little over a decade ago. As of now, the company has an unmatched range of Green Vehicles portfolio. The company has already sold one million green vehicles which include CNG and Smart Hybrid options as well. Next, the company aims to sell another one million of green vehicles over the next few years. This is a part of the “Green Million Mission ” plan. If successful, the company will be on the fast track to spread their mass adoption throughout the country.
The launch of this model is aligned with the Indian Government’s policies and plans to reduce the oil import and increase the use of natural gas. The aim is to increase the percentage of natural gas in the energy basket of the country from 6% to 15% by 2030. The Government has already started working on installing CNG fuel pumps across the country.
Maruti Suzuki’s S-CNG models come equipped with Intelligent Injection System and dual interdependent ECUs (Electronic Control Units). The vehicles are specially tuned, factory fitted, calibrated to provide an optimal level of driving performance on all kinds of paths and terrains.
The price of the vehicle will vary between ₹5.25 lakhs to ₹5.32 lakhs.
The Executive Director (Marketing & Sales) of Maruti Suzuki India 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.”
