India’s largest passenger vehicle maker Maruti Suzuki last week launched a new CNG variant of its popular mini-truck Super Carry in BS6 powertrain. The S-CNG variant complements the existing petrol variant already available for retail sale.
The last-mile mini truck market is highly competitive with two strong brands present in the segment: The Tata Motors Ace range and Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M) Jeeto. The Super Carry has emerged as a strong brand in this segment gaining sizable market share year-on-year since launch.
Apart from the strong brand and highly efficient truck, multiple variants in this segment are critical for boosting greater sales and market share for the OEMs. Before the new emission norms came into practice, the Super Carry was available in diesel, petrol and CNG variants, the firm has already launched the petrol variant in BS6, and now the latest CNG variant expands its offering in BS6 trucks range.
This all-new CNG variant of Super Carry launched at Rs 507,000 is the first 4-cylinder powered mini-truck commercial vehicle that delivers 48KW@6000rpm of power and 85NM@3000rpm of torque ensuring smooth pickup.

The compact truck conceptualized for small commercial vehicle segment users, Super Carry offers best-in-segment power, enhanced comfort, superior quality, and versatile deck. According to the company, the bi-fuel S-CNG variant has been accepted well in the SCV market and already contributes around 8% to the Super Carry sales. The introduction of the competitively priced BS6 compliant S-CNG variant coupled with the Government’s renewed focus on CNG fuel availability will further strengthen the Super Carry brand.
