The CNG powered Hyundai Xcent is claimed to have best in class warranty of 100,000km/3 years.
To expand its presence in the rapidly growing taxi market, Hyundai has introduced a new variant of its Xcent compact sedan - which comes with a factory-fitted CNG kit.
The Hyundai Xcent Prime CNG comes in two trims- T & T+, and offers a warranty of 100,000km/3 years - which Hyundai claims is the best in its class. The car is specially tuned for CNG compatibility. The factory fitted CNG kit also comes with factory a fitted Speed Limiting Function, at no additional cost to end user. Factory fitted CNG helps ease of registration and financing process besides giving registration tax benefit in select areas.
The Xcent Prime is stripped-down version of the pre facelift Xcent - and caters exclusively to the commercial/cab sector. It is Hyundai’s answer to the Maruti Suzuki DZire Tour - which has a monopoly in the cab segment.
The Hyundai Xcent prime is powered by the company’s 1.2 litre, four-cylinder, 82bhp petrol engine that is offered with a five-speed manual gearbox.
Announcing the introduction of the new variant, Rakesh Srivastava, Director of Sales & Marketing, Hyundai Motor India said, “Superior customer experience through innovation is the hallmark of Hyundai Brand DNA. As a customer centric company we are committed to the growing commercial segment with Xcent Prime becoming the preferred option for our customers. With the addition of factory fitted CNG we are confident of meeting the request of the fleet aggregators for a vehicle in the commercial segment at a very low cost of ownership.”
The Hyundai Xcent Prime T is priced at Rs. 5.93 lakh while the Xcent Prime T+ retails at Rs. 6.12 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
