Hyundai Motor India Limited (HMIL), India’s second-largest car manufacturer, yesterday introduced a commercial version of the ‘Hyundai Xcent Prime’ with factory-fitted CNG. Based on the previous model Xcent, it will reportedly only be offered to fleet operators.
Announcing the introduction of the new variant, Mr. Rakesh Srivastava, Director Sales & Marketing, Hyundai Motor India Ltd. (HMIL) said: “As a customer centric company we are committed to the growing commercial segment with Xcent Prime becoming the preferred option for our customers. With the addition of factory fitted CNG we are confident of meeting the request of the fleet aggregators for a vehicle in the commercial segment at a very low cost of ownership.”
The commercial version Xcent Prime CNG comes in two trims, T & T+, priced at Rs 5.93 lakh and Rs 6.13 lakh (USD 9,257 and 9,569) ex-showroom Delhi respectively, with best-in-class warranty of 100,000 kms/ 3 years, and is specially tuned for CNG compatibility.
The factory fitted CNG has many advantages, as the Xcent Prime comes with factory fitted SLF (Speed Limiting Function) at no additional cost to the end user. Factory fitted CNG will also help ease of registration and the financing process, besides giving registration tax benefit in select areas.
Additionally, the factory-fitted CNG will save time compared with ex-factory CNG kit installation, making it able to utilise CNG immediately.
