What will the future of luxury cars look like? Electric or CNG

What will the future of luxury cars look like? Electric or CNG

Petrol and Diesel prices have really gone over the roof in the past few years, right? After realising that people are unwilling to buy such cars, brands started to release electric and CNG cars. Even luxury brands such as Mercedes-Benz, Audi, and BMW have adopted these measures. Electric and CNG cars are more affordable and eco-friendly. 

Electric or CNG Cars

However, which one is better? CNG or electric car Which is better? Well, if you’re confused about which one you want to buy to stay in touch with the trend and save yourself from a hole in your pocket, then read along! 

Electric Cars

Have you ever wondered how electric cars work? Well, Electric cars or all-electric vehicles or battery electric vehicles have a special electric motor. They don’t have a combustion engine and use a huge traction battery to power the motor through a charging portal. Since these vehicles run on electricity, they don’t release any exhaust from the tailpipe. These vehicles don’t even have liquid fuel components like a fuel tank, fuel line, and fuel pump.

Pros of Electric Cars

What are the pros of electric vehicles? Are they really worth the hype? 

1. Rewarding 

It’s a great option to buy an electric car in India. This is because some states in India released certain electric vehicle policies to boost the electric car industry. These include introductory incentives such as no RTO fees or even road taxes at different places. 

2. Cheap to Run 

Additionally, electric vehicles are cheap! Well, no, their price may not be cheap. However, running and maintaining them is cheap. Running an EV might even be as cheap as a rupee sometimes. You don’t have to spend money maintaining it and there’s no periodic servicing it needs. 

3. Zero Emission

Electric cars are eco-friendly! If you’re trying to keep the earth healthy, then buying an electric car is a great option. They don’t contribute to carbon emissions and air pollution. 

4. Less Noise 

If you are someone who travels long distances in their car then you know the importance of wanting to drive peacefully. EVs make less noise inside the car due to their automatic transmission feature. This makes it a better driving experience for the driver.

Cons of electric cars

The cons of electric cars are listed below:

1. Expensive Buy 

Although electric cars save a lot of money when it comes to maintenance, they are costly to buy. The electric version of the car you love will be much more expensive even though its engine is the only major thing that changes. 

2. Limited Options 

There are limited options in India for electric cars. Some companies that have released electric cars include Mahindra, Tata Motors, MG, and Hyundai. However, many luxury brands are planning to catch up and go completely electric. These include Mercedes-Benz, Audi, and BMW amongst others. 

3. Low Driving range 

Long journeys might be difficult with electric cars. Their driving range is shorter than other types of vehicles. 

4. Less Charging Stations 

Electric vehicles are not yet popular and the Indian market still needs to adopt them. Therefore, there aren’t a lot of recharge stations available in India for you to travel for a long time. 

CNG Cars

CNG cars are almost the new mainstream mode of vehicle fuel that runs on Compressed Natural Gas (CNG). Maruti Suzuki’s Wagon R did a great job promoting CNG cars. They’re a great alternative to explore since CNG is cost-effective.

Pros of CNG cars

Pros of CNG are listed below:

1. Eco-Friendly 

This is a given, however, it’s worth mentioning since green fuel is important to our environment. CNG cars reduce carbon emissions without compromising their performance.

2. Cost-Effective 

Buying a car is cheaper than running it. However, CNG car owners wouldn’t agree with this! CNG is the new revolution in the world of petrol and diesel due to how inexpensive it is! 

3. Duality 

CNG cars have adopted a smart strategy by ensuring that a CNG car can also run on petrol or diesel. So, if the CNG runs out, you can always switch to petrol before driving to the nearest petrol pump. 

4. Cleaner Ride and Increased Vehicle Oil Efficiency 

CNG gives you a clean ride when you compare it to cars running on fossil fuels. Additionally, the CNG in the car won’t affect your car’s lubricating oils. Therefore, their life expands and their car works better. 

Cons of CNG cars

Here we have listed few of the cons of CNG cars

1. Less Trunk Space 

CNG cars usually don’t have any storage space for luggage because of the huge CNG kit that sits there. You will need to install a carrier on top if you’re planning to travel in your car. 

2. Less Power 

CNG cars don’t run with as much power as petrol and diesel. They almost work with 10 percent less power as compared to other variants. So if you’re looking for a powerful car with high horsepower, CNG shouldn’t be your pick. 

3. Refuelling Takes Time 

Get ready to be annoyed during refuelling. Refuelling a CNG car takes more time since everyone in the car needs to get a refill. Additionally, due to how cheap CNG is, there are many vehicles that have shifted to CNG. This means longer lines at the petrol pump. Take a book with you next time. 

4. Less Resale Value 

CNG cars might not get you the best resale value when you compare them to diesel and petrol variants. 

5. Less Recognition 

Although India is picking up on the CNG car market front, there haven’t been a lot of improvements in the petrol pump section. Finding CNG stations at regular intervals in different cities is difficult. You might even have to drive in some other direction to find a CNG petrol pump. 

The Final verdict: Electric cars or CNG

There’s no particular final verdict between these two types of vehicles. You need to decide between the two according to your requirements and preferences. However, you must know that luxury cars are being made electric. For example, BMW is introducing multiple new models that are electric other than the two existing ones. Audi’s CEO, Markus Duesmann, went on record to state that all new Audi models, released in 2026,  will be exclusively manufactured electric cars. Even Mercedes-Benz is releasing three new luxury electric BMW cars in India in 2022. 

If you’re confused between the two, you can always buy pre-owned luxury carsto dip your toe in the luxury carpool and understand your needs. If you need a car for a long distance, go for CNG cars. And if you don’t want to spend on maintenance, then try to look at pre-owned electric vehicles.If you’re looking for a pre-owned luxury car, ABE is the best place where you can find a wide range of used luxury car collections. 

FAQs

1. Should I get a CNG or electric vehicle?

That depends on your requirements. Think about your needs and make an informed decision with Auto Best. 

2. Are electric vehicles faster than CNG cars?

Electric cars might be faster than CNG cars. However, their top speed is usually less than a CNG car’s speed. 

3. Is electricity the future of cars?

Electricity might be the future of cars but CNG gives it a tough fight. Guess we’ll just have to wait!
