Maruti Suzuki becomes ‘Green’; Diesel engine omitted

India’s leading automaker Maruti Suzuki is moving towards green vehicles. The company has decided to eliminate diesel engines entirely. According to a report by the Economic Times, the company will now make cars that run on CNG or other alternative fuels. The company had previously decided not to use diesel engines in small vehicles. At the same time, it was decided to use it in medium-sized vehicles. However, the new decision is due to the huge increase in the price of diesel and the emphasis of consumers on gasoline vehicles. The company expects to sell five lakhs of CNG vehicles in the next three years. If the prices of gasoline and diesel continue to rise, people will give importance to CNG. The company expects CNG vehicles to account for a quarter of sales by March 2024. The company also plans to increase the production of vehicles that run on a mixture of ethanol-oil fuel and electricity to a third of total production. The company believes this will also help it meet the upcoming CAFE mileage monitoring system. Earlier, Maruti Suzuki Chairman RC Bhargava had said that the government should give more importance to CNG vehicles. The company operates in accordance with government policy. “The production of CNG vehicles is increasing rapidly. Demand this year was higher than expected. As of April 2022, the annual production will be between 3.5 and 4 lakhs,” explained RC Bhargava. The company plans to build 2.5 lakh CNG vehicles in the current financial year. The company estimates that CNG vehicles will sell more as gasoline and diesel prices hit an all-time high. In April 2020, the The price of a liter of diesel was Rs 62.29. In March 2021, it increased to Rs 80.87. Gasoline prices have also risen sharply. For the first time in history, the price of gasoline has crossed the 100 rupees per liter.

CNG prices will also go up

The decision will also negatively affect those who switch from gasoline and diesel to CNG. The increase in the price of natural gas will also lead to an increase in the price of cooking gas that reaches households through the pipeline.
