Commenting on the monthly sales, Mr. N. Raja, Director & Sr. Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Toyota Kirloskar Motor said:
Sale in the festive months of September and October put together has helped us clear most of our inventory in the plant as well as at our dealerships. We have seen a huge pull from the market in the last two months and especially for the Innova Crysta that has been doing phenomenally well ever since its launch in May 2016.
The Innova Crysta has registered a 45% growth from May to October 2016 when compared to the sale of Innova in the same period last year. This reiterates the kind of appreciation the Crysta has received from the market making it the highest revenue generating model amongst the top ten passenger car models sold in India. The Crysta still has a waiting period of a month in certain locations in the country and we are trying our best to bring this further down so that our customers don’t have to wait too long.
Our newly launched Platinum Etios has also received a good response from the market. We would like to thank our customers for the same.
In the last two months, our production at plant has been lower than what we had planned due to the unforeseen holidays that were called on account of the unrest in Bangalore in the month of September and also because of the list of festival holidays in October. This has had an impact on our overall sales. However, we have resumed production in full swing including the all-new Fortuner that is scheduled to launch this month. We are very excited about the all-new Fortuner and are confident that we will be able to meet our customer’s expectations
concluded Mr. N. Raja.
