The Celerio CNG gets the same Dual Jet, Dual VVT K-series 1.0-litre K10C naturally-aspirated petrol engine as its regular variants. While the petrol-only model develops 65 hp and 89 Nm, the factory-fitted S-CNG version churns out 56 hp of power and 82.1 Nm of peak torque. Here, the engine comes mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox only while the regular petrol variants also get an AMT (AGS). The new Celerio CNG has a tank capacity of 60-litres (water filling capacity).
Commenting on the occasion of the launch, Shashank Srivastava, Senior Executive Director (Marketing & Sales), Maruti Suzuki India Limited said, “Maruti Suzuki has been a pioneer in the country to offer factory-fitted CNG cars. We have the largest portfolio of 8 green models on the road and have sold around 9,50,000 S-CNG vehicles. The launch of the All-New Celerio S-CNG will take us a step closer to our ambition of spearheading the mass adoption of green vehicles in India.”

The All-New Celerio S-CNG with new 3D organic sculpted design, energetic and spacious cabin, and S-CNG technology will offer customers an affordable, safe, and high-performance green vehicle.
