Toyota Fortuner posted a total of 3,133 units in the month of June 2022 against 549 units during the same period last year with a YoY growth of 471 per cent
In the month of June 2022, Toyota Kirloskar Motor’s Fortuner stood on top of the full-size SUV sales charts with a domestic tally of 3,133 units against 549 units during the same period in 2021 with YoY positive volume growth of 471 per cent. The Fortuner has long led the segment and the chances of it continuing to do so are high as well.
Recent reports indicate that the next-generation Fortuner is in the pipeline and it could make its global debut in the coming months. The possibilities of it getting launched in India are high in the early parts of next year but no official confirmation has been made yet. It will likely get a whole host of revisions inside and out.
More importantly, besides technological updates, the upcoming Fortuner will more likely gain a new diesel hybrid powertrain in India. The Jeep Meridian stormed to the second position as its initial reception has been nothing but positive in the local market and last month, 1,071 unit sales were recorded. It is priced between Rs. 29.90 lakh and Rs. 36.95 lakh (ex-showroom).
