The Maruti Eeco CNG is being updated to meet the BS6 emission norms. The Eeco is a multipurpose van that has become very popular amongst Indian consumers. It is also sold in its commercial option where the car is modified for extra luggage use. The Eeco previously got the BS6 updates for the petrol variant and now it will get the BS6 upgrade for the CNG variant as well. The Eeco CNG is Maruti’s fourth CNG model, after the S-Presso, Wagon R and Ertiga.
This is in line with Maruti’s goal of selling one million CNG vehicles in the coming years. Maruti is expected to stress more on its CNG line up for now, as it does not have plans to continue to sell its diesel vehicles after the BS6 emission norms kick in from April. As before, air-conditioning is a standard fit, as are the driver airbag, ABS, front seat belt reminders, reverse parking sensors and a speed alert system.
