Sammitr Motors Group, the auto parts maker, foresees a thriving business in compressed natural gas retrofits, aiming to sell 2,400 CNG pickups this year. 

The group sold 2,000 CNG retrofit pickup trucks in 2012, with sales expected to get a boost this year from a new variant of Sammitr's CNG pickup, also based on the 2.7-litre Toyota Hilux Vigo.

Launched yesterday, the variant contains five CNG tanks instead of the usual three, letting the truck run as far as 620 kilometres (up from 320).
