Tata Motors has announced the launch of the new Tigor XM iCNG variant at Rs 7,39,900. Previously, iCNG was only available in the higher Tigor XZ and XZ+ variants. The Tigor XM iCNG will be more affordable than its XZ and XZ+ counterparts, with a difference of Rs 50,000 between the XM and XZ trims. At a time when more people are looking to make the switch to CNG vehicles due to rising fuel prices, Tata is looking to expand its iCNG line by launching cheaper trims with that technology.
