General Motors India has launched a CNG version of the Chevrolet Aveo mid-size sedan last week. The Aveo CNG is a bi-fuel vehicle with a full-size petrol tank and is equipped with next-generation computer-controlled CNG injection technology from Italy.
Apart from all the components of the CNG kit being factory fitted, the body is reinforced to carry the additional mass of the cylinder. The ECU (Electronic Controller Unit) calculates the opening times of the injectors for each cylinder and acts separately on each gas injector with the highest precision.
It comes with a three-year/1,00,000-km standard warranty, which is an industry first in the mid-size sedan segment, and a service interval of 5,000 km or six months (whichever comes first).
