by Autocar Pro News Desk , 01 Dec 2016

Strong customer demand for the new Fortuner SUV and Innova Crysta MPV have powered Toyota's sales.

Toyota Kirloskar Motor has sold a total of 11,309 units in the domestic market in November 2016, registering a year-on-year growth of 10 percent (November 2015: 10,278). The company also exported 1,284 units of the Etios series in November 2016 compared to 1,110 units in November 2015.

Commenting on the monthly sales, N Raja, director and senior VP (Sales & Marketing), Toyota Kirloskar Motor, said: “November has been a very exciting month for us as we launched the all- new Fortuner. We are overwhelmed by the response it has received – over 6,200 bookings already. We have shipped close to 2,500 units of the new Fortuner to our dealerships across the country. The sale of the new Fortuner has almost doubled this month when compared to the same period last year.

“The Innova Crysta and the Platinum Etios have also done really well with the Crysta clocking more than 50,000 units in just six months of its launch in India. However, demonetisation has had its impact on our sales as it has affected customer walk-ins at dealerships, order bookings and timely deliveries. This will pose as a major challenge in the upcoming days as customers are still dealing with the effects of demonetisation. To assist customers during this phase, we have introduced various cashless schemes like 100 percent on-road funding, payments through E-Wallet and PayTM to ensure smooth and hassle-free buying experiences.”
