The year 2022 has been very special for the auto industry. Many great cars have been launched this year, from electric vehicles to CNG. At the same time, by the end of the year, some other cars can also knock on the Indian market.
HYUNDAI IONIQ 5
The official bookings for the new Ioniq 5 electric crossover will begin on December 20, 2022. The model will come to India as a CBU (Completely Built-Up Unit) and is expected to be priced at around Rs.60 lakh. Based on the brand’s E-GMP platform, the Hyundai Ioniq 5 could offer 72.6kWh and 58kWh battery pack options. Talking about the range, this electric car can give a range of 481 km on a single charge.
MARUTI GRAND VITARA CNG/TOYOTA HYDRAULIC CNG
Maruti Grand Vitara and Toyota Highrider were one of the biggest launches of this year. There has been a good demand for these vehicles during the festive season. Because of this, the company has decided to bring its CAG version. The CNG versions of the newly launched Maruti Grand Vitara and Toyota Highrider SUVs are reported to go on sale in December 2022. However, the company has yet to announce its official launch.
Toyota has already started taking pre-orders for the Hyrider CNG model at an initial amount of Rs 25,000. Both the CNG SUVs will come with a 1.5L naturally aspirated petrol engine, which will be mated to a factory-fitted CNG kit. Let us tell you that the same setup is already being given in XL6, which can give a 26.32 km/kg mileage.
