Strengthening its commitment towards environment-friendly mobility solutions, Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) has been offering a gamut of green powertrain options for its customers to choose from. This “technology agnostic” approach to achieve democratization of green mobility has received an overwhelming response from customers. The recently launched Intelligent Electric Hybrid in the Grand Vitara has witnessed strong demand, while the Smart Hybrid and S-CNG technologies in the MSIL portfolio have already proven their mettle with more than 2 million cumulative sales.
Now, Maruti Suzuki has further upped the ante with the expansion of the S-CNG^ technology in NEXA. Two blockbuster premium products of NEXA, the New Age Baleno and the All-New XL6 will now feature the S-CNG system providing the aspirational customer with feature rich and class leading products with minimal impact on the environment.

CNG is one such technology known for emitting considerably lower CO2 emissions compared to conventional fuels; with its debut in NEXA l along with Smart Hybrid and Intelligent Electric Hybrid offerings, NEXA will provide an array of eco-friendly mobility solution options for our evolved eco-conscious customers. Through market studies, we have learnt that the premium segment customer is actively looking for eco-friendly options without compromising on performance, technology, safety and driving experience. Baleno S-CNG and XL6 S-CNG have been developed keeping these uncompromising NEXA customers in mind. Baleno S-CNG will be the country’s one of the most powerful premium CNG hatchbacks, while XL6 S-CNG will be a premium CNG MPV.”
He further added, “Maruti Suzuki’s success in democratizing the CNG technology has resulted in sales of more than 1 million S-CNG vehicles which has saved CO2 emissions of approximately 1 million tonnes. Such figures embolden our confidence of having large scale positive impact on the environment through offering a range of green technologies for customers to choose from.”
