Tata Motors has officially confirmed that it would debut its CNG-powered cars on 19th January. Moreover, Tata Motors dealerships across the country have already started accepting bookings for the CNG variant of the Tata Tiago and Tata Tigor.

Both the Tata Tiago and Tata Tigor will come with the same tried-and-tested 1.2-litre naturally-aspirated engine. However, few changes will be made to this powertrain to run on CNG.

As standard, this engine produces a healthy 84.82bhp and 113Nm of torque. However, with the CNG fuel expect this engine to produce slightly lower power and torque output.

At present, the petrol-powered versions of the Tata Tiago and Tata Tigor come with a choice of 5-speed manual and 5-speed AMT gearboxes. However, we expect the CNG versions of these cars to come with the 5-speed manual transmission as standard.

One of the reasons for Tata Motors to introduce CNG powered vehicle in India is because of the sudden and steep rise in demand for CNG powered vehicles in the country.

Apart from that, CNG-powered vehicles emit far fewer pollutants into the atmosphere and are far cheaper to run than their respective petrol-powered counterparts.

Going with the numbers, A total of more than 1.36 lakh CNG cars have been sold in India from April 2021 to November 2021.
