We introduced milestone models like the Urban Cruiser Hyryder and the Innova Hycross. Both the models have been very well appreciated by our customers, attracting huge traction in terms of demand and we are trying our best to meet customer requirements accordingly. Some of our other launches earlier this year, like the new Glanza, are also doing extremely well. TKM’s flagship models like the Fortuner, Legender, Camry & the Vellfire, continue to excel in their respective segments.”

He added, ”We are excited about our participation at the Auto Expo 2023 and are looking forward to creating a lot more buzz around Toyota’s sustainable offerings in the mass electrification space as well as alternate fuel technology, contributing to our ultimate goal of carbon neutrality.”
