Tomorrow at the Bharat Mobility event, Tata will introduce the Nexon iCNG. Although there are some technical and cosmetic changes specific to CNG, the Tata Nexon iCNG concept is based on the recently redesigned Nexon SUV and shares almost all of the same features and looks as the Nexon petrol or diesel. It will be the first turbocharged petrol CNG vehicle in the nation when the 1.2-liter Nexon turbocharged engine is combined with the CNG arrangement. Tata hasn’t disclosed the specs, but based on previous Tata CNG vehicles, we don’t anticipate any significant modifications.

The renowned twin-cylinder technology from Tata will be available in the Nexon iCNG. Tata claims 230 liters of usable boot space, which is a good amount of room. This is because of the split cylinder, which has a total capacity of 60 liters of CNG. And the spare wheel? As observed on the Tiago, Tigor, and Altroz CNG, the spare wheel is fastened to the underside of the boot. Additional unique features include a single ECU, auto-fuel switching, flat trunk area, and direct start for CNG.
