Commenting on the sales performance, N. Raja, Deputy managing director, Toyota Kirloskar Motor, said, “With the closure of special offers/year-end schemes, the buying sentiment has witnessed a dip this month. The tightening of vehicle financing availability has also added to the challenges in the market. However, we are happy to have launched the Camry hybrid electric vehicle or self-charging electric vehicle across dealerships in India at the onset of the new year”.
The Japanese giant launched the new-gen Camry in India last month. Since its launch, the hybrid sedan has already received more than 200 bookings, confirmed the carmaker. Launched for the price of Rs 36.95 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi), the eight-generation Camry has grown in size while the all-new cabin now comes with a host of new features.
Toyota inaugurated their 11th driving school in Mumbai last week. Apart from that, the carmaker has also confirmed that their version of the highly-successful Baleno will be arriving in India in the second half of 2019. The Toyota-badged Baleno will be part of a contract between Toyota and Suzuki for sharing models and technology. Meanwhile, the Vitara Brezza with a Toyota badge will hit the market in 2020.
