Maruti Suzuki India Limited has introduced its sixth natural gas vehicle, the CNG-powered Celerio Green. Equipped with iGPI technology, the performance of the Celerio Green ensures performance to match that of petrol variants.
Powered by the factory fitted iGPI technology (intelligent Gas Port Injection) the Bi-fuel Celerio Green delivers fuel efficiency of 31.79 km/kg in CNG mode (as per test results under Rule 115 of CMVR, 1989), 58.2 hp at 6,000 rpm and torque of 78 Nm at 3,500 rpm. The vehicle is BSIV compliant (Euro 4).
Presenting the Celerio Green, Mr Manohar Bhat, Vice President (Marketing) said, “Brand Celerio has received overwhelming response from the market. The idea of introducing a bi-fuel CNG variant was to strengthen the brand and offer more fuel choices to the customer. We are confident that factory fitted iGPI technology on the Celerio Green will bring all the benefits to customers such as smooth drive and hassle-free maintenance and help us in expanding the Celerio brand.”
The presence of dual ECUs ensures delivery of optimum fuel quantity to engine, leading to consistent performance along with improved fuel efficiency.
