Is Celerio AMT available in CNG? If not, is there any possibility of it in future. If not then why?

Celerio CNG is not available with an AMT transmission but you can get this with a manual gearbox. From what I know is that AMT utilizes a gearbox that's just like a normal gearbox that has fixed gear ratios and these cannot be changed while to change the gears car relies on a device that's specially developed by Magneti Marelli. Since running on different fuels might require different gear ratios (which cannot be done unless it's a CVT), the car may never come with an AMT. The CVT may never be employed in Celerio since AMTs are comparatively cheap. Although, I have doubts with AMT that could work with bifuel car system, it should be programmable considering the car's engine would only require different engine speeds for different fuels (easily managable through ECU) before the AMT system could do a gear change, it may have some driveability issues though that are too pronounced that might make it unviable. I would suggest you to buy a petrol AMT instead, it's really fuel efficient and would offer the best compromise.
