Maruti Suzuki has launched the BS-VI compliant version of its Eeco S-CNG van, with prices starting from ₹4.64 lakh for the Cargo Non-AC version (₹5.06 lakh for the Cargo AC version). Commercial buyers also have the option of purchasing the Tour V configuration (5-seater) of the Eeco CNG, priced at ₹4.93 lakh.

The Eeco is the brand's fourth CNG model to get the BS-VI update, after the S-Presso, Wagon R and the Ertiga. Launched in 2010, Maruti Suzuki claims it has sold more than 6.7 lakh units of the Eeco since then, giving it a mammoth 87% market share in the multi-purpose/LCV van segment.
Sharing his thoughts on the Eeco's successful run, Mr Shashank Srivastava - Executive Director (Marketing & Sales) at Maruti Suzuki India Limited said, 'Eeco has established a strong foothold with its excellent mileage, best-in-segment comfort, space and power, at a low maintenance cost. Offering best-in-class safety, Eeco's all-purpose built is ideal for versatile use. The multi-purpose van has earned the distinction of being ideal for family travel, while simultaneously being a dependable business vehicle. Taking forward its legacy, Eeco BS6 S-CNG is designed to deliver optimum performance, safety, engine durability, convenience and mileage.'
While the homegrown carmaker's active focus has been on the BS-VI upgrade of its petrol & CNG-powered portfolio, it is soon going to launch its BS-VI compliant diesel models as well.
