About CNG Cars

CNG is gaining traction as an alternative fuel choice for environmentally-conscious drivers. Instead of relying solely on gas or diesel to power vehicles, CNG models have an additional tank, occupying extra space and a modified engine to run on this methane gas blend instead.  

However, for people able to accommodate the space trade-off and local fueling infrastructure, CNG models provide a practical way to tap into cheaper, low-emission mileage today. The fuel savings over the years can also offset much of the upfront investment into CNG vehicle technology. So, relying more on this "cleaner" fossil fuel blend may make sense financially and environmentally for some car and truck owners pursuing green transportation options.

History of CNG Cars

CNG vehicles have a history dating back to 1939 in Italy. They emerged as a response to wartime fuel shortages. This period saw some growth in CNG technology, though it wasn't yet mainstream. A significant turning point came in the 1990s, with storage tank technology advancements enhancing the practicality and affordability of CNG vehicles. This era witnessed an increase in manufacturers offering CNG models. 

Recently, CNG cars have gained attention due to fluctuating oil prices and environmental concerns, representing a viable option in areas with natural gas availability and infrastructure despite being less common than electric or hybrid vehicles.

CNG Cars in India

The CNG passenger vehicle segment has been charting impressive growth in India recently. As per industry estimates, the total market for CNG vehicles in the country is presently valued at around USD 9.37 billion. Experts project this to further rise to USD 13.55 billion by 2029, clocking a CAGR of 7.66% during this period.

The expanding prospects for CNG vehicles also tie in with governmental vision and support. Indian authorities have laid out plans to aggressively scale up the availability of public CNG refuelling infrastructure. The aim is to establish 10,000 CNG fueling stations over the next ten years under a natural gas infrastructure build-out plan.

The swelling consumer embrace for CNG vehicles stems from their substantially lower running expenses than conventional diesel and petrol models. High fuel prices make these recurring savings all the more valuable for Indian automobile owners. The savings accumulate over the years, defraying the slightly higher sticker price of CNG trims. 

With firms launching an increasing number of factory-fitted CNG variants for popular models and the refuelling ecosystem set to widen, natural gas vehicles seem firmly en route to mass adoption in the Indian market. Their viability and advantages as a cleaner mobility solution also propel stakeholder efforts.

The motivation for switching to CNG often comes down to pricing and emissions, as Natural gas has maintained a far lower price per gallon than gasoline. So, opting for a CNG car can lead to considerable savings at the pump over time, provided CNG refuelling stations are accessible. And because burning natural gas emits fewer greenhouse gases and air pollutants versus standard fuels, CNG vehicles are considered a greener transportation option, helping improve air quality.

However, compressed natural gas fuel tanks pose some compromises. Their cylindrical shape and high-pressure storage limit cargo space considerably compared to traditional fuel tanks. So, while CNG cars offer environmental and economic advantages, lack of trunk room remains a drawback. Occasionally, hunting for scarce CNG filling stations can also mean adjustments in one's driving range and routes.

The Popularity of CNG Cars in India

The share of CNG variants is substantial within passenger vehicles as well. About 9 out of every 100 passenger cars purchased in India during 2022-23 featured CNG fuel capability. This proportion was only 6 out of 100 merely two years ago. Market leader Maruti Suzuki commands the highest CNG passenger vehicle market share at 69% presently. Other major players like Hyundai and Tata Motors in retail CNG car sales follow Maruti.

Industry experts attribute the swelling consumer interest in CNG vehicles to their lower running costs compared to conventional petrol and diesel-powered models - especially in light of high liquid fuel prices. Simultaneously, the Indian government aims to spur CNG adoption rates by expanding public refuelling facilities. Currently, around 1,300 CNG pumps operate nationally. However, stated goals are to ramp this capacity to 8,000 stations over the next two years, further rising to 17,700 by this decade's closure.

With both public and private stakeholders firmly promoting its prospects, CNG vehicles seem poised to shortly become more mainstream in India's automotive landscape. Their potential to curb imports and pollution also renders them as an apt strategic mobility solution.

Different Types of CNG Cars

Cars are engineered from start to finish to be CNG-only models - tanks, pipes, injectors, the whole shebang flowing with good 'ol methane since the first sketches on the drafting table. Companies like Maruti Suzuki, Hyundai, and Tata have popular compact cars made exclusively for compressed natural gas in their lineup.

Now, you could also get a regular petrol car and have it retrofitted aftermarket with a CNG kit. It lets you store natural gas in cylinders plumbed into your fuel system alongside your regular petrol tank. Flick a switch and choose which feeds the engine, gas or petrol. It gives you flexibility if CNG stations get scarce on long trips. Brands like Honda, Ford, and Renault sell “factory look” approved kits to let dealers convert petrol versions of some models.

The retrofit route lets you double-dip. However, integrated CNG-exclusive cars will have better pure performance since their design maximises natural gas energy. It comes down to what blend of flexibility and efficiency works for your needs - and your driving style - on Indian roads.

Popular CNG Cars in India

Tata Punch CNG

Tata's tiny new Punch crossover is among India's most affordable CNG-powered rides! A petite natural gas tank is tucked under the rear in place of a cargo shelf, with room left for two small suitcases. But if you seek mini SUV styling on a budget, the wee Punch saves big by filling its tiny tank with cheap CNG versus pricey petrol.

Maruti Suzuki Swift

Maruti's ever-popular Swift hatchback has kept Indian families zipping happily for over a decade now. But soaring gas prices had some wishing for relief. The Swift CNG is here using Maruti's latest gas-sipping engine tech! Flip to natural gas mode and watch the savings add up when city cruising, then go back to petrol for long, open road trips.

Maruti Suzuki Brezza

Who says you can't have sporty small SUV looks AND natural gas savings? Maruti's curvy new Brezza has both! This sub-4 meter SUV squeezes CNG cylinders aft of the rear seats with less luggage room than the main tradeoff. But the peppy engine loses none of its punch, while the 30-kilometer per kilogram CNG range keeps road trip budgets happy. For a zippy style blended with gas savings, Brezza makes subcompact CNG SUV life tempting.

Upcoming CNG Cars in India

As per recent reports, Kia plans to launch a company-fitted CNG variant of the popular Sonet compact SUV in India next year. The addition of a CNG trim line is expected to give buyers seeking fuel efficiency another choice while retaining the versatile characteristics of the Sonet range.

Maruti Grand Vitara CNG - Maruti's recently launched midsize SUV has a robust hybrid variant, but word is a CNG version could also materialise. Grand Vitara would pack solid road-trip capacity and lower running costs.

Tata Nexon CNG - Tata looks to bring its smash-hit Nexon crossover into the CNG club. With the success of the Punch CNG, another compact SUV gas model makes total sense for efficiency-loving Indian families.

Kia Carens CNG - Kia's roomy Carens MPV has proven popular already. A factory-tuned CNG variant would make this people-mover with slick looks even more wallet-friendly.
