Toyota Kirloskar Motor endured a total of 8,312 units in November 2019 as against 10,721 units during the same month last year with 22% decline
Toyota Kirloskar Motor managed to garner a total of 8,312 units in the month of November 2019 as against 10,721 units in the corresponding month in 2018 with Year-on-Year de-growth of 22 per cent. The Japanese auto major ended up seventh overall ahead of Honda, Ford, Morris Garages and Volkswagen.
The Innova Crysta continued to be the most sold model last month as 3,414 units were retailed against 5,425 units with YoY decline of 37 per cent. The premium MPV will receive a new rival in the form of Kia Carnival by February 2020. Waiting to make debut at the 2020 Auto Expo, it will be offered in multiple seating configurations.
The Carnival has a long list of comfort and convenience-based features to be offered but Kia won’t be targetting high volumes with the MPV. The Glanza finished second within Toyota’s domestic portfolio with 2,313 units. The rebadged Baleno has gained some momentum in the last few months and its consistency of around 2,000-2,500 units will likely be maintained.
