Toyota Innova Crysta sold 8,171 units in June, marking its highest sales ever

The all new Toyota Innova Crysta MPV is getting increasingly popular in the Indian car market after it launched in early May this year. The second generation Innova Crysta has not only gained back the crown of the bestselling MPV model in India to the iconic Innova brand, but has also become the top selling model in the entire utility vehicle segment of the country.

Toyota Innova Crysta

Toyota Kirloskar Motor (KTM) has been basking in the outstanding response that it has been receiving from the market for the latest-gen Innova. The new Toyota Innova Crysta is become the highest selling Utility Vehicle in the country for the second consecutive month in June, as the model got the top position in its launch month May itself. The Innova Crysta managed to sell 8,171 units in the month of June, while the new MPV model recorded the sale of 7,259 units in the month of May, 2016, after launching on 2nd of the same month.

Moreover, the sale of 8,171 units in the month of June this year marks the highest ever sales that the iconic Toyota Innova has experienced ever since it first launched in India back in 2005. The Toyota Innova launched at a time when there was nothing like it in India, yet it soon became a favorite of the Indian consumers and ever since has been ruling the MPV segment, until the Maruti Ertiga compact segment snatched that title from it. The Innova continued to remain massively popular over a decade’s time and gained an iconic MPV model in the country similar to its global success. It was well expected that the new and all improved Innova Crysta will carry forward the heritage of the Innova brand in India, although some were doubtful about it as it has become all the more expensive this time around.

The Toyota Innova Crysta has proved all the doubts about it wrong and has immerged as all the more popular in its all new avatar. Toyota was selling an average of 5,000 units of the first generation Innova per month in 2015, and the sales volume were dropping every month. The new Innova Crysta has given a much needed boost to not only the Innova image but also to Toyota India’s falling sales.

The Innova Crysta has already bagged more than 30,000 of bookings within just two months of its Indian launch and now comes with a waiting period of up to 3 months. More interestingly, although a pricier vehicle, almost half of the bookings for the Crysta are for the top of the range automatic variant that is tagged at over Rs. 20 lakhs.

The new-gen Toyota Innova Crysta is a more premium, bolder looking an almost an entirely new vehicle as compared to its predecessors. It gets powered by a new 2.4L and 2.8L diesel engines paired to a 5 speed manual or a 6 speed automatic transmission. Toyota will soon start the deliveries of the petrol variant of the Innova Crysta.

Toyota wins Prius name in trademark contest in India

World’s top selling car maker, Toyota Motor Corporation has won the case over the brand name ‘Prius’ in India. The Japanese car major was troubled when it had to engage in a lawsuit to claim the brand name of its globally acclaimed and highly popular Prius hybrid model in India. However, Toyota gets to keep its iconic Prius branding to itself, as the company has emerged victorious by the High Court judgment about the use of the Prius name for the hybrid sedan in the country.

Toyota Prius Prime

The immensely popular, Toyota Prius hybrid has been around in India for quite some time now. However, the car major later found that another automotive company is using the ‘Prius’ name. The auto firm called itself Prius Auto Industries and also has an accessory manufacturing wing named as Prius Auto Accessories Private Limited. Both these companies however, do not manufacture cars but manufacture and supply automobile components as well as accessories. Toyota Motors also found out that these companies under the name of Prius Industries were also selling various automotive spare parts under the name of Toyota, Innova as well as Qualis. Thus, it became very apparent to the Japanese auto giant that Prius Auto industries is not using the name incidentally, but is intentionally cashing on the vast reputation of Toyota Motor.

Prius Auto Industries as well as the Prius Auto Accessories both held registered trademarks in India. On the other hand, Toyota Kirloskar Motor India, the Indian joint venture of the Japanese car major had not applied for any registration for the Prius name in this country. Nevertheless, the company got wary about the unjustified advantage that the components and accessory supplier was taking of the highly respected global brand value of Toyota Motors and misusing the credibility of the company to make profits. Hence, Toyota filed a case against the so-called Prius Auto Industries in the Delhi High Court back in the year 2009.

The court case lasted for seven long years, after which Toyota Motor has finally got justice in the form of the favorable judgment by the high court. In a final hearing in the Delhi High Court on 8th of July, the verdict was announced which gave the justified right of using the Prius brand to Toyota Motor or its Indian presence Toyota Kirloskar Motor.

The High Court also found that the Prius Industries have done business of over Rs. 20 crore by utilizing the Prius and the various Toyota brand names. Thus, the court has also slapped a penalty of Rs. 10 lakhs on the components supplier as a violation of the trademark rights of Toyota Motors and for unethically taking advantage of the global goodwill of the Toyota Prius brand name to sell its own products in the Indian automotive market by misguiding the Indian consumers. The components company will be paying the fine directly to Toyota Motor.

Thus, Toyota has rightfully gained the Prius brand name in India, which pioneered the global hybrid segment.

Toyota Innova Crysta petrol version’s bookings commence

Toyota Kirloskar Motor India is all ready to launch the petrol version of the all new Innova Crysta MPV to finally solve the diesel ban problem that has been stopping it from entering the Delhi NCR market. Toyota India is going to officially launch the Innova Crysta petrol in the market in the coming week, as per a company dealership. Prior to its market launch, Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) has commenced the bookings for the same. As per a tweet from Toyota Innova India’s official twitter account, the petrol automatic version of the Crysta is tagged at Rs. 14.7 lakhs ex-showroom.

Toyota Innova Crysta

The new Toyota Innova Crysta petrol will be powered by an in-line 2.7 liter 4-cylinder petrol engine that has the capability to generate a max power of 164 bhp at 5,200 rpm and 250 Nm of top torque at 4,000 rpm. This is the same petrol motor which powers the new generation Innova MPV in the car markets of Middle East. This refined and powerful petrol engine is expected to get paired with a choice of both 5 speed manual and a 6 speed automatic transmission.

The global second generation Toyota Innova has been named as the Innova Crysta for the Indian car market. The petrol version of the Innova Crysta is identical to its diesel counterpart, when design and dimensions and model trims are concerned, with no feature or equipment changes at all, excepting the petrol engine. Similar to the diesel model trims, the soon to launch Innova petrol version will also be offered in three variants of G, V and Z, for sale. The petrol variants are also expected to be priced around Rs. 60,000 lower as compared to the equivalent diesel trims, and this should attract even more buyers.

The new generation Innova Crysta was launched as an all-diesel MPV in the Indian market like its predecessor on 2nd May, 2016, and has received great response from the market despite its more expensive pricing. The diesel version of the Innova Crysta have been garnering great amount of bookings in these two months and has already bagged more than 30,000 bookings. The Innova Crysta diesel variants come powered by 2.4 liter and a 2.8-liter diesel motors, and they currently have waiting period of up to three months.

Toyota India produced 6,000 units of the new generation Innova Crysta in its launch month, but following the increasing demands the company has already increased the MPV’s production to 7,800 units in the month of June. The company managed to sell 8,171 units of the Innova Crysta in June in the domestic car market of India, which made it the bestselling model in the Indian UV segment by outselling the very popular compact SUVs Hyundai Creta and Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza.

The all new Innova Crysta comes with everything new and improved right from the engines to the chassis. It has also become much more premium now as compared to its predecessor, while flaunting an all new bold design language.

Toyota imports the Lexus LX 450d to India for homologation

The largest global car manufacturing company, Toyota Motor has been considering bringing in its luxury brand Lexus in India for some time now. It has been highly speculated recently, that the Japanese auto major will be introducing Lexus in India very soon. While there have been hints from the company officials regarding the company’s interest in introducing its Lexus in India, there have been no definite conformation from the company, as to when the Lexus luxury brand will be introduced to India, or regarding the Indian portfolio of the brand.

The Indian luxury car market is growing at a very fast pace and thus, has been increasingly gaining the attention of the various global luxury car majors. While the Indian luxury segment is getting flooded with new car models and sales are galloping away, Toyota seems to have finally dropped its inhibitions about launching the Lexus brand in India and is actually preparing to introduce the luxury brand in this country soon. Proving that all the high speculations of the Lexus brand arriving in India, Toyota has lately imported the LX 450d luxury SUV from the stable of Lexus in India. The single unit of the luxury SUV that has been imported into India from Japan, has been brought for certification purposes.

However, it is good to mention at this point that the LX 450d is not the first Lexus model to have been imported in India for homologation purposes. It is the actually the second model, as the first Lexus car that was brought to India by the company was the ES 300h hybrid that arrived just a month ago. In February this year, several reports said that the Toyota India is finally getting ready to introduce the Lexus brand in the country, and these imported Lexus models confirm those reports.

While Toyota Motor has been considering launching the Lexus brand in India for quite long, its head quarter has rejected the idea twice in 2010 and in 2013. So, it is quite apparent that if Toyota India finally got the green signal from its head quarters this time around, then it must have done its market studies very thoroughly and found the results to be favorable.

Toyota’s top official Kyoichi Tanada, recently revealed to the media that the company is planning to launch Lexus starting with the hybrid vehicle models taking the Indian government’s requirements and the country’s environmental issues into consideration. He also added that the company is planning to introduce more hybrid models to meet the government’s requirements in India.

However, many said that the LX 450d that has arrived in India is not a hybrid model. This could mean that the company is also considering regular Lexus SUVs for the Indian car market in future. While these things can’t be clarified now, the one thing that is for certain is that Toyota is actually bringing the Lexus brand in India to fight with the various luxury brands in the country that are basking in success and growing sales rates.

Upcoming launches from Toyota Kirloskar Motor India in 2016-17

Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) has been basking in the high success of the new generation Innova Crysta MPV that is expected to carry forward the iconic vehicle’s heritage in India. Toyota cars are highly revered in India for their great quality, safety and reliability.

However, the company’s decision to launch the petrol powered Innova Crysta assures us that we will get many newer cars from the house of KTM.
