Launch of the all-new Toyota Alphard & Vellfire

Toyota Alphard/Vellfire New Model Launch: Popular minivans delay deliveries until May at the earliest

On January 30, Toyota Motor Corporation announced that there is a waiting period for the all-new Alphard and Vellfire due to its popularity.

As of January 23, Toyota has received nearly 21,000 pre-orders for their new Alphard and Vellfire. As their monthly sales target is set at 7,000 units, Toyota has tripled this figure already and exceeded expectations for a new model.

The Japanese automaker received even more orders for the new Alphard and Vellfire after they were launched on January 26. According to their announcement on January 30, orders placed from now on will “take at least three months for delivery and arrive in May at the earliest”.

Toyota explained, “We sincerely apologize for the delay. We kindly ask for your understanding as production is being maximized at the moment in order to deliver these vehicles to our customers as soon as possible.”
