Upcoming CNG cars in India
The rise and continuous rise in petrol and diesel price has forced people to explore new avenues. The available options are LPG, CNG, Electric and hybrid cars in India. LPG prices are already high and there is no guarantee as to its availability as the government has recently put a cap on the number of cylinders supply in a year to each connection. Electric cars still lack the necessary infrastructure and Hybrid cars are too costly. Now the only option that is left is the CNG cars. Here are some of the CNG cars that are going to ease the pressure on the pocket of the masses and will also be bringing down the pollution levels. The price of the CNG models of these cars will be around Rs 30,000 to Rs 50,000 more than the petrol models.
