At present the Indian Automobile market is one of the most rapidly emerging markets but unfortunately was one of the many others who were less concerned about the environment. Times have changed now and our environment has become a concern for all the manufacturers.
Taking initiatives in order to save it, car majors have come out with eco-friendly solutions where they offer some of their models with factory fitted CNG or LPG kits which are not even less polluting but also help daily commuters save an appreciable amount of their expenses.
Maruti Suzuki came out with as many as five CNG vehicles on the same day and also introduced Maruti Wagon-R Duo, a car which could run on LPG as well as Petrol. Even Maruti SX4 CNG variant has jumped into the market to compete against all the less fuel efficient family sedans.
But the real competition begins now as Mahindra & Mahindra has launched Mahindra Logan with a CNG heart. Mahindra Logan CNG has been launched in Delhi and Mumbai since these are the only cities having enough CNG gas filling stations.
The car is likely to be adopted as a commercial vehicle as it is quite evident with the past data where most of the fuel efficient cars like Ford FIesta and others were accepted as commercial cars rather than family ones.
