Tata Altroz iCNG Launched In India At A Price Of Rs 7.55 Lakh
The Tata Altroz iCNG has been introduced in India by the top carmaker Tata Motors at an introductory price of Rs 7.55 lakh (ex-showroom). The most recent vehicle to adopt CNG is the premium hatchback from Tata Motors. Tata Motors’ distinctive twin-cylinder CNG technology is used for the first time in an automobile in India in the Altroz iCNG. On the Altroz CNG, features including a voice-activated motorised sunroof, wireless charging, and an air purifier will be offered.
The model will also be available in six other variations, including XE, XM+, XM+(S), XZ, XZ+(S), and XZ+O(S). The company started taking reservations for the Altroz CNG last month for a little cost of Rs 21,000 for those who are unfamiliar. Here is a summary of the Altroz iCNG’s specifications, features, and other information.
The only noticeable aesthetic distinction between the petrol-powered model and the Altroz CNG is the ‘iCNG’ badge on the latter’s tailboard. Tata Motors tucked the two 30-litre CNG tanks under the floor of the trunk to maximise boot space. Previously, CNG tanks filled almost the whole boot space. In contrast to the conventional Altroz’s 345 litres, the Altroz CNG’s boot has 210 litres.
Six trim levels of the domestic automaker’s Altroz iCNG are offered: XE, XM+, XM+(S), XZ, XZ+(S), and XZ+O(S). The car is available in four different colour options: Avenue White, Downtown Red, Arcade Grey, and Opera Blue. Additionally, it has a three-year or 100,000-mile standard warranty.
The Altroz CNG is powered by a 1.2-litre gasoline engine and a 5-speed manual gearbox. In petrol mode, it produces 88bhp of maximum power and 115Nm of maximum torque, vs 77bhp and 103Nm of torque in CNG mode. Its direct rivals, the Toyota Glanza CNG and the Maruti Suzuki Baleno CNG, generate a comparable 77 horsepower but just 98.5 nm of torque when using CNG. Additionally, the Altroz may immediately start in CNG mode, unlike its rivals.
As standard inside features, the Tata Altroz iCNG boasts an electric sunroof with voice recognition, a wireless charger, and an air purifier. Numerous other high-end features are also included, such as projector headlights, LED DRLs, R16 diamond-cut alloy wheels, an 8-speaker Harman touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple Carplay connectivity, premium leatherette seats, fully automatic climate control, rear AC vents, a height-adjustable driver seat, and more.
The ALFA (Agile, Light, Flexible, and Advanced) architecture platform, which has been awarded the 5-Star Global NCAP adult safety certification, serves as the foundation for the Altroz product line. With the new CNG technology, the vehicle includes a micro-switch to keep it off while being refuelled as a safety precaution. Thermal incident prevention is another feature of the car. This safety feature shuts off the CNG supply to the engine and releases gasoline into the atmosphere.
The company believes that the twin cylinders beneath the luggage compartment are the most secure alternative because the valves and pipelines are shielded from harm under the load floor. Tata Motors asserts that the Altroz iCNG’s enhanced rear body structure and 6-point CNG tank attachment system provide additional rear accident protection. Additionally, the Altroz CNG features a unique Single ECU that enables jerk-free switching between the petrol and CNG modes as well as Direct Start in CNG mode, a first for the industry.
The Atroz iCNG starts at Rs 7.55 lakh (ex-showroom), as previously mentioned. The Maruti Suzuki Baleno CNG is Rs 79,600 more expensive than the Altroz CNG. Maruti Suzuki and Toyota only provide two variants each, while Tata offers six. The Glanza CNG starts at Rs. 8.50 lakh, and the Baleno CNG starts at Rs. 8.35 lakh. All prices are ex-showroom.
