Toyota, whose sales have been modest this year, showcased this car at the upcoming launch of the country at the Auto Expo. This car is set to be launched in the premier sedan segment and would be priced around Rs 12 lakhs. It would contend with cars like Honda City, Hyundai Verna and Volkswagen Vento. This car is the only launch that the company plans to add this year to its existing portfolio of cars in this country. Its major sale pushers are Innova and Fortuner that belong in the MPV and SUV segments respectively. Both models are doing well in respective segments; the Toyota Camry hybrid is scheduled to re-launch and the company does hope to bring in more hybrid cars in the future. As the Indian government issued the directive for all companies to go electric initially, the company started joint investments in a Gujarat facility to get EV technology localized. However the government’s policy is set to revise and would also include hybrid and other alternative technologies.
