Tata Tiago CNG Car Launch: Tata Motors launched its CNG cars on Wednesday. The company has introduced its Tiago and Tigor models with iCNG technology. After this, Tata’s battle will be with Maruti and Hyundai in the CNG car segment.
Best In Class Power CNG Cars
Tata Motors claims that their CNG cars come with best in class power. The company has developed it on its 1.2-litre Revotron engine. It generates max power of 73PS. On the other hand, the ground clearance of the Tiago iCNG is 168mm, and that of the Tigor iCNG is 165mm, which gives a better ride and a good drive experience on hilly bumpy roads.
Detects Gas Leaks
Tata Motors has given extra safety features in its CNG cars. If there is any CNG leakage in the vehicle, then the leak detection technology automatically shifts the car from CNG to petrol mode. This technology also alerts the driver about gas leaks. A microswitch has been provided for the instant shutdown of the vehicle. Apart from this, this vehicle does not start with the fuel lid open.
Not only this, if there is any incident of a thermal accident in the car, it shuts off the CNG supply to avoid cylinder burst. At the same time, the remaining gas in the tube is released into the air.
This is the Price of Tiago CNG Car
The company has launched Tiago iCNG in 4 trims. Its price starts from Rs 6.09 lakh and goes up to Rs 7.52 lakh. On the other hand, the Tigor iCNG has been offered in two trims. Its price ranges from Rs 7.69 lakh to Rs 8.29 lakh.
The factory-fitted CNG car is currently dominated by Maruti Suzuki and Hyundai Motors in the Indian market. Now Tata’s CNG cars will give them a tough challenge. Maruti offers factory-fitted CNG kits in S-Presso, Celerio, WagonR, Eeco, Alto and Ertiga. At the same time, Hyundai’s Hyundai Grand i10 and Hyundai Aura come with options.
