Automaker Maruti Suzuki India Ltd will phase out vehicles that run completely on petrol in seven to 10 years, the Economic Times newspaper reported recently, citing a senior executive.
The move comes as Maruti, India's biggest car manufacturer, looks to update its product offerings in line with green targets set by the Indian government, the report said.
"In the next decade, we will convert all vehicles. There will be no pure petrol vehicles. They will either be electrified, or driven by CNG or bio-fuels," CV Raman, Maruti's chief technology officer said.
