Hyundai launched LPG variant of Hyundai Accent sedan

In its latest move to produce, eco-friendly cars, on May 21, 2009, Hyundai Motor India Ltd. (HMIL), India’s largest passenger car exporter and second-largest car manufacturer, launched the LPG variant of the base version of its popular luxury sedan, Hyundai Accent. In June 2008, HMIL launched the CNG version of its popular Hyundai Santro model. Now, Hyundai Santro is available in both LPG and CNG version.

Named Accent Eco, the sedan comes with an LPG kit certified by the Department of Explosives (DOE) and Automotive Research Authority of India (ARAI), India’s premier automobile testing and certifying authority. One of the main obstacles of having a LPG kit is that it takes up necessary boot space but the “Toroidal design of the Hyundai Accent Eco LPG kit enables extra space for luggage. Hyundai car offers great value for money and the Hyundai Accent Eco is no different. The car is well designed and offers safe and reliable driving. It’s a great combination of high fuel economy and great interior space. As per Hyundai’s high safety standard, the Hyundai Accent Eco goes through extensive “leakage detection test” three times.
