The induction of CNG cars was formally done at the hands of Mr. V.C.Chittoda, MGL Managing Director, in presence of Mr. S.N.Burman, Maruti Suzuki General Manager and Commercial Business Head, Mr. Allan Perrin, MGL Technical Director and other senior officials from both companies.
MGL has made constant efforts to spread the message of using CNG and, with over 200,000 CNG vehicles in and around Mumbai, the city has surely been benefited with this alternative, safer and economical fuel option. Today, the entire fleet of taxis, auto rickshaws, and majority of BEST buses, private cars and even heavy motor vehicles in this Indian city run on CNG supplied by MGL through a network of 150 CNG filling stations having about 750 dispensing points.
At the same time, Maruti Suzuki launched the ‘Go Green’ initiative on June 15. The company set up a special spot at all dealerships in Pune, called the ‘Green zone’, where cars with compressed natural gas engines, such as the Alto, SX4, Eeco, Wagon R and Estilo, would be on display.
