The demand for CNG vehicles is increasing.

CNG powertrains have become quite popular in recent years. This is because CNG is more affordable and gasoline prices have risen sharply. This has made people think about alternative fuels such as electric powertrains or CNG. The EVs are not the first choice for most people because of the fear of range and lack of charging infrastructure. This is where the CNG-powered vehicles step in. The CNG coverage is increasing rapidly and even if the car is out of CNG, the car can still run on regular gasoline that is widely available.

Here are the top 6 CNG cars you can buy under 10 million:
