Toyota Kirloskar Motors has decided that “due to very high demand pattern which has resulted in an increased waiting period for the diesel variant of Innova Crysta, it has decided to temporarily stop taking orders for the diesel variant”.
In an official statement, TKM said that it is making efforts to supply the vehicles to customers who have already made bookings with its dealers. The company will however, continue to take order for petrol variant of Innova Crysta.
The Innova Crysta was launched in 2016.
Our sister publication, Autocar India, has learnt that the Innova Hycross, an all-new monocoque MPV that will see a global debut this year, will be an additional model to the Innova Crysta, according to sources. This new MPV will come only with a petrol-hybrid engine option, like the Toyota Hyryder midsize SUV, and not get a diesel engine option.
In an official statement, the company also said that the Innova, TKM’s flagship offering in India has come a long way ever since its introduction in 2005. Having created a niche of its own, the versatile segment leading Innova has always remained a notch above when compared to other models in the segment. Over the years, the vehicle has undergone several enhancements be it luxury, comfort or performance features , in order to meet the ever-changing needs of the Indian customers. Similarly, the second generation Innova Crysta, continues to win customer hearts , being a segment leader itself. Having found its home in close to 1 million households in India the brand Innova has become synonymous with quality, durability and reliability and is widely preferred by customers from both personal and commercial segments.
