Maruti is expanding its portfolio and making greener options available for its customers. To begin with, it will introduce the CNG variant of the new Wagon R model by October 2010. The new variant is expected to be about Rs 70,000 costlier than the existing version. "Maruti Suzuki is working on at least five models across different segments to launch the CNG variants, which will come as dual mode with petrol, and these will be launched during the next quarter," a source said.

The CNG versions of its models will be powered by i-GPI engine – a CNG system based on the K-series engine. The CNG variants will be priced 15-20 per cent above their petrol counterparts.

Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) Managing Executive Officer (Engineering) I V Rao said that the company has been working on the CNG technology for the past two years and it had also shown the technology at the 10th Auto Expo. MSIL has recently launched the new generation WagonR, priced between Rs 3.28 lakh and Rs 3.81 lakh in the Indian market.
