On July 1, Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM), Toyotaâ€™s subsidiary for the manufacture and sales of Toyota vehicles in India, announced that due to popularity, there is currently a two to three month waiting period for the delivery of their new Crysta minivan.
The Innova Crysta was unveiled in February at the 2016 Delhi Motor Show (Auto Expo). In 2004, Toyota launched the Innova minivan to headline its Innovative/International Multi-purpose Vehicle (IMV) Project for emerging markets. The Innova is sold in India as well as markets within Southeast Asia.
The Innova Crysta, the second-generation model of the Innova, was renamed for the Indian market when this new model was introduced earlier this year.
For the Innova Crysta, Toyota has established a newly developed frame, along with a new engine and six-speed automatic transmission. For the interior, Toyota has inherited its three rows of seating from the previous model. It also offers enhanced fuel efficiency as well as a comfortable and quiet ride.
Released to the Indian market in early May and priced at 1,383,677 Indian Rupee (approx. 2,250,000 yen), the Innova Crysta aims to top the sales ranking for Indiaâ€™s minivan segment for the 11th year in a row. In regards to the aforementioned waiting period, TKMâ€™s Director and Senior VP of Sales & Marketing, N. Raja said, â€œWe hope for patience from our customers as weâ€™ll eventually deliver the perfect vehicle to them.â€
