• Maruti Suzuki India launches the Swift S-CNG at Rs 7.77 lakh

The factory-fitted CNG Swift will come under two variants

Maruti Suzuki India has decided to give the hot-selling Swift in two S-CNG variants. Offered in the Vxi and Zxi variants, this technology has transformed the Indian CNG car landscape. The Swift S-CNG vehicle’s powertrain and suspension are specially tuned to offer better engine durability, efficient consumption figures, and superior safety. 

Price of the two variants (ex-showroom) - 

Vxi Rs 7,77,000

Zxi Rs 8,45,000

The automaker now offers nine factory-fitted CNG car models under its wing. These include Alto, WagonR, Celerio, Dzire, Ertiga, Eeco, Super Carry, Tour-S and Swift. Another feat to boast about is the one million sales of its S-CNG vehicles till today.

The S-CNG vehicles come with dual interdependent Electronic Control Units (ECU) and an intelligent injection system to provide an air-fuel ratio that ensures superior performance with efficient consumption.

The safety aspects have gone higher up the scale with stainless steel reinforcements, and the addition of intricate joints avoids corrosion and any leakage in the entire CNG structure. The system has been integrated with wire harnesses to eliminate short-circuiting, and it also utilises a micro switch to ensure the vehicle electricals are completely off and do not start during the CNG fuel-filling process.

Powered by the1.2-litre K-series Dual Jet, Dual VVT engine, the new Swift S-CNG delivers 77.49PS/98.5Nm, and the fuel efficiency figures stand at 30.90 Km/kg.
