"We believe that mass adoption is one of the most important factors for the success of any new technology. Offering eight BS 6 compliant petrol vehicles in the mass segment, much ahead of the timeline, has helped us to reach this technology to a larger customer base," MSI MD and CEO Kenichi Ayukawa said in a statement.

Early introduction of the BS-VI range represents the company's commitment to the government's vision for a clean and green environment, he added.

The upgraded petrol vehicles lead to a reduction of nearly 25 percent in Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) emissions.

The BS-VI compliant petrol vehicles can run on BS-IV petrol as well.
