Manohar Bhat, Vice President (Marketing), Maruti Suzuki, commented on the launch: “As a market leader we are concerned about the environment. We continuously work to offer products that are high on fuel efficiency and low on overall cost of ownership. Ertiga Green, with a factory fitted CNG system, is another step of Maruti Suzuki to meet today’s need of our customers. With the Ertiga Green our customers will be able to enjoy lower running costs and also take advantage of Maruti Suzuki’s vast service network across the country.”
Over 87,000 Ertiga units have been sold since its launch in April 2012. The factory-fitted CNG variant ensures consistently high performance and a driving experience thanks to the contemporary i-GPI (intelligent-Gas Port Injection) technology, which uses a Dual Engine Control Unit that delivers calibrated quantity of fuel to the engine, leading to more efficient fuel usage and consistent high performance.
Ertiga Green is the sixth vehicle from Maruti Suzuki with factory-made CNG segment: Alto, Wagon R, Eeco, SX4 and Estilo are already offered with compressed natural gas option. The brand new model will be available in states with CNG infrastructure including Delhi NCR, Gujarat, Mumbai, Pune, and parts of Andhra Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh.
