In a move towards sustainable and eco-friendly mobility, Maruti Suzuki, India’s leading automobile manufacturer, has unveiled its latest offering at the Bharat Mobility Expo – the Maruti Brezza CBG (Compressed Biogas). This innovative model promises to combine environmental awareness with high performance, showing the potential of alternative fuel options. Let’s take a look at what this eco-friendly vehicle has to offer.
Maruti Suzuki Brezza CBG Performance
The Maruti Brezza CBG retains the advanced K-series twin-jet dual VVT petrol engine, ensuring powerful performance on the road. The engine, which delivers 103.1 HP of maximum power and 136.8 Nm of maximum torque when running on gasoline, maintains its power even when running on CNG. With a remarkable CNG mileage of 25.51 km/kg, the CBG variant will impress environmentally conscious drivers with its efficiency.
Compressed biogas shares similar chemical properties with CNG, making the transition from one green fuel to another smooth and hassle-free. With over 90% methane content, CBG proves to be a sustainable and viable alternative to traditional gasoline and diesel options. The Brezza CBG is expected to match the performance levels of its CNG counterpart, offering consumers a reliable and environmentally friendly option.
Features of Maruti Suzuki Brezza CBG
Externally, the Brezza CBG displayed at the exhibition maintains the familiar design, with only prominent stickers on the sides indicating the fuel type. However, the commercial version will feature standard CBG stickers on the front and rear windshields. The equipment list remains consistent with the respective CNG variants, ensuring a seamless transition for consumers.
Maruti Suzuki Brezza CBG Specifications
To support the CBG powertrain, Maruti Suzuki has implemented smart tweaks, including a smart injection system for optimal combustion, a retuned suspension to support the weight of the gas tank, and advanced components that improve engine durability. Features such as a micro switch for fuel filler, stainless steel pipes, leak-proof materials, fuel level indicators and a CNG receptacle further enhance the driving experience.
