People In Pune Choose Petrol Cars Over Cng, Diesel And Evs: Here’s Why

While many people show interest about CNG cars, they come with huge pricing difference with petrol models.

Despite petrol prices increasing to as high as ₹124 per litre., people in Pune preferred to purchase petrol cars over diesel, CNG and electric vehicles between 1st January and 25th August this year, reveals data published by Pune RTO.

According to RTO data, petrol cars sold nearly twice as many as CNG cars. During the aforementioned period, 21,285 petrol cars were sold versus 10,274 CNG cars. In Pune, however, 7,574 diesel vehicles and 1,164 electric vehicles were sold during the same time period. Not only cars, but also two-wheelers, particularly petrol-powered models, saw an increase in demand. According to a Hindustan Times report, 78,591 petrol bikes have been sold in the Pune RTO region this year, compared to 11,681 electric bikes.

According to data, Pune RTO’s Deputy Regional Transport Officer Sanjeev Bhor stated that there was a good sale of all types of vehicles this year because the number of vehicles registered was relatively high until August. “And there isn’t much of a difference in registration of petrol cars versus CNG cars in this period because we registered a total of 21,285 petrol cars and 10,274 CNG cars from January to August 2022,” he added.

According to data, the number of vehicles registered up until August was relatively high, according to Pune RTO’s deputy regional transport officer Sanjeev Bhor, so there was a good sale of all types of vehicles this year. We have registered a total of 21,285 petrol cars and 10,274 CNG cars from January to August 2022, he continued, so there hasn’t been much of an impact on the registration of gasoline-powered vehicles relative to CNG vehicles during this time.

Fuel costs started to rise steadily in February of this year, reaching a peak of 120 cents per litre in May. At the same time, the cost of CNG increased each month, eventually reaching 92 rupees per kilogramme in Pune. However, prices have now decreased in the city, with gasoline costing 105 cents per litre and CNG costing 85 cents per kilogramme.
