It will be powered by a 1.2-litre revotron engine churning out 72hp & 103Nm torque. Commenting on this latest launch, Shailesh Chandra, Managing Director of Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles Ltd. and Tata Passenger Electric Mobility Ltd., stated:

“Customers are increasingly choosing alternate fuel options with the intent of an economical as well as eco-friendly drive. CNG as a fuel, with its wide availability and accessibility, has gained a lot of acceptance. However, opting for CNG meant compromising on aspirational features and significantly giving up boot space. In January 2022, we addressed the first compromise by launching advanced iCNG technology in Tiago and Tigor, offering superior performance and top-end features. Today, we are delighted to launch the Altroz iCNG, an industry-first offering that will redefine the CNG market by addressing the major concern of boot space.”

Our multi-powertrain strategy in the Altroz portfolio today offers petrol, diesel, iturbo, and iCNG, providing an array of options for customers to choose from. The Altroz iCNG will bolster our expansive New Forever range and continue to sustain our growth momentum in passenger cars.”
