Speaking on the importance of CNG vehicles in its portfolio, Mr. Kenichi Ayukawa, Managing Director & CEO, Maruti Suzuki India Limited, said, “The growth of CNG vehicles complements the Government of India’s vision of reducing oil import and enhancing the share of natural gas in the energy basket of the country from 6.2% now to 15% by 2030. The Government is working to rapidly increase the CNG fuel pumps network in the country. There has been a phenomenal growth in the number of CNG stations in the last six years with over 50% of growth coming in the last year alone. With the government's clear focus, the spread of CNG stations is set to increase significantly. Maruti Suzuki is aligned with Government’s vision by strengthening and expanding its CNG product portfolio."
