Overwhelming response to Rumion MPV compels Toyota Kirloskar to stop taking CNG variant bookings
The company is open to taking orders for its petrol only Neo Drive variant.
Toyota Kirloskar's re-entry into mainstream multi-purpose vehicle market with Rumion - sourced from alliance partner Suzuki, has got off to a very good start, compelling the company to stop the bookings for the E-CNG option for the MPV.
In an official statement, Toyota Kirloskar said since the launch of Rumion in August, the company has received "overwhelming response" from its customers.
The company said, the demand has surpassed expectations resulting in a long delivery time across variants especially E-CNG options.
"We are heartened to see the increasing inflow of enquiries and healthy bookings for the All New Toyota Rumion. The long delivery time across variants, especially for the E-CNG option has necessitated us to temporarily halt bookings of the E-CNG option, only to avoid customer inconvenience due to longer waiting period. However, we continue to accept bookings for the petrol (NeoDrive) variants of the All-New Toyota Rumion."
The demand situation is quite similar at its alliance partner Maruti Suzuki - who supplies the MPV to Toyota, with the CNG variant waiting period running into 6-9 months.
The company will continue to regularly assess the situation and do its best to resume the order booking of the said variant at the earliest.
"We appreciate our customer’s understanding as we work towards meeting the market demand in a timely and most suitable manner,” added the spokesperson.
