With petrol and diesel prices touching the moon, alternative fuels such as Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) are once again in the spotlight. Known to be a cleaner, greener and cheaper fuel, CNG has seen massive growth owing to the ever-increasing prices of petrol as well as diesel. Not only does CNG provide a cheaper alternative to petrol and diesel, it also offers impeccable mileage that truly makes every drive a pocket-friendly one. So here are India’s most efficient CNG cars.

    • While fitting CNG in an automatic vehicle is possible, we haven’t seen even a single OEM offer a company-fitted CNG automatic car. Much like you, we too are looking forward to CNG-fitted automatic vehicles.

  1. Important need of the hour. Automatic transmission with CNG in my view will be equivalent option to Electric vehicles if not better.

    Are OEM listening??
