        The new generation of the Celerio was launched in India in November 2021. Now, Maruti Suzuki has launched the Celerio CNG in the country at Rs 6.58 lakh (ex-showroom). Available in a single VXi variant, the Celerio comes with a factory-fitted 60-litre CNG fuel tank that returns a claimed mileage of 30.60km/kg.

        The Celerio CNG retains the same design as the standard Celerio. It features halogen headlamps and rear lamps, electronically adjustable side-view mirrors, an anti-lock braking system with electronic brake-force distribution and rear parking sensors. On the inside, the cabin gets dual airbags, a central locking system, front and rear power windows, air conditioning and suchlike.

        This Celerio comes powered by a 999cc, three-cylinder petrol engine that produces 66bhp and 89Nm of torque. However, with the CNG mode turned on, the engine makes 56bhp and 82Nm. That said, this motor is mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. Besides this, the Celerio is claimed to provide a mileage of 30.60km/kg. Apart from that, this Celerio S-CNG model gets “dual interdependent ECUs (Electronic Control Units)” for optimum performance, better fuel efficiency and engine durability, says Maruti Suzuki.

        On the launch occasion, Shashank Srivastava, Senior Executive Director, Marketing & Sales, Maruti Suzuki India Limited, said, “Maruti Suzuki has been a pioneer in the country to offer factory-fitted CNG cars. We have the largest portfolio of 8 green models on the road and have sold around 9,50,000 S-CNG vehicles. Owning a factory fitted S-CNG vehicle comes with standard warranty benefits and convenience of Maruti Suzuki’s service network spread across India, that our customers find very comforting. With green mobility in focus, we have witnessed 22% CAGR increase in our CNG sales in the past five years. This is a testimony to the customers accepting technologically advanced, eco-friendly, and safe CNG mobility solutions.”

        He added, “The launch of All-New Celerio S-CNG will take us a step closer to our ambition of spearheading the mass adoption of green vehicles in India. Interestingly, the S-CNG variant in the previous generation Celerio contributed over 30% of total sales. The All-New Celerio S-CNG with new 3D organic sculpted design, energetic and spacious cabin, and S-CNG technology will offer customers an affordable, safe, and high-performance green vehicle. We are confident that customers will appreciate the All-New Celerio S-CNG’s stellar fuel-efficiency.”
