  • India on Wednesday joined a select league of nations having the world's cleanest petrol and diesel as oil companies rolled out Euro-VI emission compliant fuels without either disruption or a price increase.

    While BS-VI compliant compact hatchback Figo is priced between Rs 5.39 lakh and Rs 7.85 lakh, compact sedan Aspire is tagged from Rs 5.99 lakh to Rs 8.34 lakh. On the other hand, the company said its new compact utility vehicle Freestyle comes in a price range of Rs 5.89 lakh to Rs 8.19 lakh.

    Auto majors have placed more than a million BS-VI passenger vehicles on Indian roads despite the Covid-19 pandemic playing spoilsport. While some players are yet to launch their BS-VI portfolio due to the lockdown, others started a year in advance, experts said.

    The country’s largest two-wheeler maker Hero MotoCorp reported a 42% drop in sales during the month to 334,647 units of motorcycles and scooters. The company was already under pressure due to excess BS-IV inventory in the system, which it had to sell before 31 March. Production was further curtailed due to plant closures because of the nation-wide lockdown.

    The compact SUV comes mated with a five-speed manual transmission. ​

    Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India (HMSI) has launched BS-VI compliant version of its 110cc scooter Dio, with price starting at Rs 59,990 (ex-showroom Delhi). The updated model is available in two variants -- Standard and Deluxe -- priced at Rs 59,990 and Rs 63,340, respectively. The company has opened bookings for the scooter across the country.

    All cars assembled at the company's plant or imported are now BS-VI certified. As a gesture to its customers owning an environment friendly BS-VI Volvo Car this financial year, Volvo is not increasing prices on its BS-VI certified cars till March 31.

    India will keep its date with ultra-clean Bharat Stage-VI (BS-VI) fuels today (April 1), leapfrogging from BS-IV amidst slump in demand and constraints on movement in the last five weeks due to the spread of coronavirus and the countrywide lockdown.

    Ertiga S-CNG, which offers a mileage of 28.06 km/kg is second BS VI compliant S-CNG vehicle and the only MPV with factory-fitted CNG in the country, from Maruti Suzuki, the company said.

    The company also announced the prices of its newly unveiled BS-VI compliant two-wheelers including MT-15 (155 cc) motorcycle, Ray ZR 125 FI scooter and Street Rally 125 FI scooter. The MT-15 will be priced at Rs 1,38,900 and Rs 1,39,400, respectively, for two different variants.

    The Federation of Automobile Dealers' Associations (FADA) had asked the Supreme Court to extend the deadline to sell and register BS-IV norms compliant vehicles, arguing that dealers would incur the losses on any unsold inventory. However, the court refused to look into the merits of the case and was in no mood to consider any extension.

    The GIXXER SF is priced at Rs 1.22 lakh, and GIXXER SF MotoGP edition is tagged at Rs 1.23 lakh.
