General Motors India on Monday launched the CNG version of its Chevrolet Aveo mid-size sedan.
The Aveo CNG is a bi-fuel vehicle with a petrol tank, and is yet another environmentally friendly car to be available in India.
The car is equipped with computer-controlled CNG injection technology from Italy, and the kit components are fitted at the factory — including the CNG injectors, selector switch, modified wiring and suspension.
The body, too, is reinforced to carry the additional mass of the cylinder. The ECU calculates the opening times of the injectors for each cylinder. The Aveo CNG comes with a three-year/ 100,000-km warranty and a service interval of 5,000 km or six months.
