Troubled by rising fuel prices? Here are top CNG powered cars under Rs 6 lakh

India has the ambition to go all-electric by 2032, but even so, we are years away from making electric cars a norm in the country. And on top of that, fuel prices are skyrocketing, so a viable solution to cheaper & cleaner alternative is CNG.

Fuel prices in the country have crossed the threshold where we can now all justifiably run around waving our hands in the air in sheer panic. With petrol selling above Rs 82 in Delhi, Union transport minister Nitin Gadkari said while addressing the third Bloomberg India Economic Forum in Mumbai on Tuesday that the fuel rates are very high and that "it is a situation where definitely people are facing problems". Electric vehicles are still some years away from becoming a norm in India, so the best bet for now is a CNG powered car. Softer on the environment and on your wallet, hence we've listed some cars that come with factory fitted CNG kits under Rs 9 lakh.
