Tata Motors started bookings for their new CNG vehicles, which will launch on January 19, 2022. These two vehicles will be Tata Tiago CNG and Tata Tigor CNG. By launching these two vehicles with CNG compatible engines, tata will compete in the CNG segment too. The bookings of these two models are already started at Tata Motors dealerships.

With this update in tata’s portfolio, tata tigor will become the only vehicle in India, covering three power sources in a car (Petrol, electric, and now CNG).  

 

CNG Vehicles Graph

In a few past years, the graph of CNG vehicles in Indian cities is just going upwards. 2019 there were 1,300 filling stations, and that has been bumped up to 3,500 filling stations in 293 cities presently, according to SIAM (Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers).

This number is set to reach 6,000 stations by 2025. Tata Tiago will compete with Hyundai Santro and Maruti Suzuki Wagon R, While Tigor will go Head-to-Head with Hyundai Aura. 

CNG has been considered as an alternative fuel option in recent times. Especially with the move to electricity and rising fuel prices. At that time CNG considers more promising as a sustainable fuel option.

Tata has been at the forefront of alternative fuel use ever since they launched their Nexon EV. They appeared to be heading in the right direction with their new CNG-compatible cars.
