Electric power continues to be a sustainable and viable option in the automotive industry as more people move towards this form of green transport, furthering the cause of CNGs. CNG cars continue to grow in popularity, with Maruti Suzuki at the head of the pack. Followed by Hyundai and Tata Motors, who have recently added vehicles to their CNG lineup.

They make a variety of factory-fitted cars available, including Swift, WagonR, Dzire, Alto 800, Alto K10, Ertiga, Celerio, Eeco, and S-CNG versions of them. Maruti offers the largest fleet of CNG vehicles currently in India.
