Maruti Suzuki has always led the way for innovations in Indian Automobile Industry. Maruti is introducing flex-fuel engines as an alternative to petrol and CNG engines. Flex-fuel is the way forward in the automotive world, as the fuel is cleaner and energy-efficient.
The Indian Government mandates ethanol-powered engines for all classes of vehicles
Maruti Suzuki took this initiative after Nitin Gadkari, the Road Transport and Highway Minister, encouraged automotive makers to start ethanol-powered vehicles within 10-12 months. The flex-fuel engine speaks for itself as it can run on 100% petrol or ethanol, though the government urges the automotive makers to concentrate on ethanol-powered engines.
Maruti Suzuki’s Flex-Fuel Engines, the next smart move?
The cars with the flex-fuel engines would run on a combination of two fuels- petrol and ethanol. The Flex-Fuel Engine automatically adjusts the ratio of the fuels, owing to the development of fuel composition sensors and suitable ECU programming. This cleaner and greener fuel is a thing of the future.
Maruti Suzuki and the futuristic moves!
After the government’s instruction on encouraging CNG as the primary mode of personal commute, Maruti Suzuki has adhered to the appeal. With high demands of CNG vehicles on their delivery waitlist, the car-maker is aggressively working towards delivering them at the earliest possible.
Maruti Suzuki, the trendsetter name in Indian households
- Rarest automobile maker to discontinue diesel variants following BS6 emission protocol

Maruti Suzuki works on EV launch too, launch maybe before 2025
The largest Indian car-maker also made its mark by entering int the arena of electric vehicles. Maruti would launch it anytime before 2025, though exact dates are yet to be declared. Kenichi Ayukawa, MD, and CEO of Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) confirmed the news during a virtual conference yesterday. In the words of RC Bhargava, the Chairman of Maruti Suzuki India Limited, they would be excited to sell 10,000 units of electric vehicles in a month as the company has a much higher sales volume previously in other segments.
