- Tata Motors launches Altroz CNG, the third model in their portfolio to be equipped with a factory fitted CNG kit after Tiago and Tigor.
- Altroz CNG’s dual-cylinder setup, with twin cylinders of 30 litres each, has been positioned under the boot floor, freeing up storage space and competing with Maruti Suzuki Baleno and Toyota Glanza CNG.
On 19th April , Tata Motors has introduced “Tata Altroz CNG” with booking amount of Rs 21000. Delivery of The Altroz CNG will be started in May . It is the third model in the brand’s portfolio to be equipped with a factory fitted CNG kit, following the Tiago and Tigor, and will be first shown alongside the CNG version of the Punch at the Auto Expo 2023.
New Tata Altroz CNG is available in three trim XM+,XZ and XZ+.
Powertrain and Mileage of Tata Altroz CNG
The Altroz CNG is powered by the same 1.2-litre, three-cylinder engine that produces 86hp and 113Nm of torque in petrol mode and 77hp and 97Nm in CNG mode. This model will most likely come with a single 5-speed manual gearbox. The Altroz, like the Tiago and Tigor CNG, can start in CNG mode, which none of its competitors do. The Tiago and Tigor CNG have claimed fuel economy of 26.49km/kg, and we expect the Altroz to have a similar figure.
Tata Altroz CNG: Design features
The Altroz CNG’s exterior will remain unchanged, with the exception of the addition of the ‘iCNG’ badge on the tailboard. The new dual-cylinder setup in the boot is the most distinctive feature of the premium hatchback. The new twin cylinders, which are 30 litres each, have been positioned under the boot floor to free up storage space, as opposed to the large 60-litre tank that plagues boot space in multiple CNG models.
Price of Tata Altroz CNG
The Altroz CNG is expected to be Rs 90,000 more expensive than its petrol manual counterpart, which is currently priced between Rs 6.45 lakh and Rs 9.10 lakh (ex-showroom, India). The Altroz is the third premium hatchback to be offered with a CNG powertrain, and it will compete with the Maruti Suzuki Baleno and Toyota Glanza CNG at launch.
The Tata Altroz is one of the safest hatchbacks on the market right now, and if the company decides to launch the model with its “Twin Cylinder Technology,” we expect the model to become an appealing proposition for many car buyers in the country.
