Automobile major Hyundai Motor Tuesday launched a liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) powered variant of its hatchback i10 priced between Rs.416,144 and Rs.430,659 (ex-showroom Delhi).
“The LPG version of our next-gen i10 is a viable alternative for customers looking at low running cost,” said H.W. Park, managing director and chief executive, Hyundai Motor India Ltd.
The new variant is powered by a 1.1 litre iRDE2 engine which can run on both LPG and petrol. The car has a factory-fitted LPG kit.
“With separate petrol (35 litre) and LPG (34 litre) tanks, the customers have an option to choose from LPG and petrol modes,” the company said in a statement.
The car sports a special LPG tank which offers larger boot space than other LPG-fitted cars.
“The LPG kit in i10 blue drive is impact resistant and is approved by the department of explosives,” the statement said.
The car has been fitted with an alternator management system which controls delivery of power to the battery, which extends the battery life and improves mileage.
