We are happy to have sustained a positive growth momentum of 17% from April to September 2018 as compared to the same period last year. This growth can be attributed to the strong demand of Crysta, Fortuner, Yaris and the Etios Liva. We have reached a significant milestone of more than 4 lakh happy customers for Etios Series in the month of September 2018. Etios Liva has seen a positive sales growth of 10 % in April -Sep 2018 as compared to same period last year.
We have recently launched the enhanced version of Innova Crysta and Fortuner which has received good response from customers. We are thankful to our valued customers for their relentless support and confidence towards our products. The recently launched Dual Tone Liva Limited Edition has been appreciated by customers across markets in India.
Customer demand in the auto industry has temporarily dampened owing to rising fuel prices, floods in different parts of the country and impact of currency weakness. However, we are confident that the buying sentiments will improve in the festive season with a strong customer demand.
We would like to thank our loyal customers for their relentless support and confidence that they have on Toyota products.
