Toyota registered a total of 5,555 units in August 2020 with 48.1 per cent YoY de-growth as it finished eighth in the manufacturers’ standings
Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) has the Innova Crysta and Fortuner as two of its popular models in the domestic market. The Glanza joined the party as the first rebadged product from the Toyota-Suzuki partnership and it has been a decent seller for the Japanese brand, especially following the departure of Etios twins due to BSVI emission standards.
The premium hatchback competes against its donor Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Hyundai Elite i20, Tata Altroz, Honda Jazz and Volkswagen Polo. It finished second in the sales charts last month as 1,418 units were sold against 2,322 units during the same period in 2019 with Year-on-Year sales de-growth of 39 per cent.
The Innova Crysta topped the sales charts within Toyota’s domestic range as 2,943 units were registered in August 2020 as against 4,796 units during the corresponding period last year with 39 per cent volume decrease. The Fortuner ended up third last month as only 733 units were sold against 878 units with 17 per cent de-growth.
