Tata Motors has received the BS6 compliance certificate for its 3.8L NA SGI CNG engine from ARAI (Automotive Research Association of India). It is the first OEM in India to achieve BS6 certification for a naturally aspirated CNG engine for commercial vehicles. This certification includes meeting the tailpipe mass emissions as well as compliance to On-Board Diagnostics (OBD) norms, as mandated by government regulation.
Rajendra Petkar, Chief Technology Officer, Tata Motors said, “This BS6 engine certification milestone has been achieved with intense design and development focus, by leveraging in-house capabilities and those of our technology partners. We have worked hard to build a leadership position in the market by providing our customers with best-in-class natural gas vehicle products in the commercial vehicle market, and this development of BS6 solution will further re-inforce our market offering.”
The engine is a naturally aspirated engine, i.e it does not need a turbocharger. It produces a maximum power of 85 Ps @ 2,500 RPM with a torque of 285 Nm @ 2,500 RPM. This combustion occurs at stoichiometric conditions in this engine.
