In seven to 10 years, according to a top official quoted in the Economic Times newspaper, Maruti Suzuki India would phase out all-petrol automobiles.
According to the report, Maruti, the largest automaker in India, is making the change as part of an effort to modernise its product lineup in order to meet environmental goals established by the Indian government.
“All vehicles will be converted within the next ten years. Pure gasoline-powered automobiles won’t exist. According to Maruti’s chief technology officer, CV Raman, they would either be electric or run on CNG or biofuels.
A request for comment on the report from Reuters was not immediately answered by the firm.
Maruti, which stopped producing diesel cars in April 2020, also declared that it would not introduce an all-electric car until 2025.
