The good news - he confirmed that the Yaris will be launched in India after it is sufficiently tweaked for Indian road conditions.
I hope the Hybrid Innova Crysta and Fortuner are not like Ciaz/Ertiga. A proper hybrid with the capacity to run a few kilometers on pure electric power would be a good option.

Yaris has some potential, but I think they should plan for launching the next generation. The Vios should also come with the Yaris.

Afterall, Yaris : Vios :: Jazz : City.

I don't think Toyota has any of those ciaz/ertiga like hybrid systems. They have a proper hybrid system which uses a combination of the electric motor and petrol engine or just the electric motor to power the car. Also regenerative braking to charge the batteries.

If Toyota can keep the pricing of the Crysta Petrol Hybrid same as the pricing of the current Crysta or maybe in between the petrol and the diesel, I am sure they will find a few buyers. I don't get the point of the Fortuner Hybrid. A Corolla Altis and Yaris hybrids are a nice move. 👍🏻

So owning a Toyotoa which would appeal to both mind and heart, will remain a distant dream in India atleast in near future.

The way, Innova and Fortuner have become premium and lost the VFM tag in recent years, and still rocking sales chart, this was bound to happen.

The only saving grace being Yaris, hope they don't tweak too much and go the Liva way.

We don't see any mention of Vios, so no point of discussing on that car.

I guess, vios and Yaris are the same. Yaris just seems to be the hatchback variant of the vios.
And vios is seen testing very frequently in different states in the recent months. So, this might come soon.

Yaris will come in the space of a premium hatchback and debut here maybe in 2018/19, as the New Yaris is expected globally in 2017.

This is exactly my expectations from Toyota, move Liva to Swift class and Yaris to Jazz/i20 class.

Yaris and Vios are the same. It is sold in the Middle East as the Yaris(both as hatchback & sedan) and in the South east Asia as the Vios(sedan). I guess the Vios will be getting the reworked 1.5L engine from the Etios. Preferably a dual vvti.

Default Toyota planning a made-for-India hybrid car in five years

http://www.livemint.com/Companies/vQ...ive-years.html

<quote>
The impetus behind Toyota’s plan for a new car is India’s Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) norms, that seek to ensure that the mileage of cars on Indian roads improves by 10% between 2017 and 2021 and 30% from 2022 while carbon dioxide emissions comes down to 108 grams per litre starting 2022. The mileage improvement will be decided on the basis of litres of fuel consumed by a vehicle to run 100km.<unquote>

Can anyone throw some light on these CAFE norms? I didnot know INDIA has these norms. Is there a topic on this on this forum?

I have been witnessing video advertisement of RAV4 on Facebook in sponsored category. Today I saw the same video ad on Times of India site also. Is something brewing within Toyota that we are not aware of?

Toyota puts hold on its new launches instead will focus on consolidation of operations.

With recent changes in Governments thinking especially on Hybrids, Toyota India is rethinking on its product launches and investments in India.

Earlier was proposing the Vios, a compact CUV( C-HR?) and a compact sedan, but now puts it on hold.

Now Totota India expects a growth lower than the industry at 5-6% compared to the guidance of 7-8 percent provided by the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers.

When you can make obscene profits from just 2 models, why bother with anything else?

Weren't their investments already on hold in India due to the "uncertain, unfavourable business conditions" etc since NGT banned 2+ litre engines in NCR.

Approaching govt to consider hybrids in EV drive: Toyota

Quote:
Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) is approaching the government to consider hybrids as a key part of India's drive towards electric vehicles (EVs), according to a top company official.
Quote:
The government has envisaged 100 per cent electric vehicles for public transport and 40 per cent for personal transportation by 2030.
Quote:
He added that with more than 80 per cent of the electricity in India being generated by burning coals, getting a car which runs on electricity generated by burning coals doesn't help much.

If you look at pollution factor, the hybrids stand much better than EVs. It is less for electrified hybrid vehicles," he said.
Quote:
Electric vehicles are still in work-in-progress stage and it will take some time to come, and by that time the infrastructure will also get developed in India
IMO, Toyota is right regarding the way Electric Vehicles are meant to be adopted. I cannot understand why GOI has neglected Hybrids when they are the best of both words.

Is Maruti's SHVS to be blamed here ?

How I wish everyone own/drive a hybrid before moving to Battery Electric Cars post 2030 !

I happened to give my car to the service center here in chennai for body work (fender damaged). I got to know that Vios will be launched shortly. Even though I was told it could be within a month, but i see March as the deadline. They were positive that the production has also started for Vios.

Toyota revisits its India plans - Yaris( sedan & hatch) likely to step in!

Quote:
Toyota has revisited its strategy for the Indian market and the Japanese carmaker is reportedly planning to offer more products in the mass market segment soon.
Quote:
There could be something in the small car segment (upper end of the compact car segment.)
Quote:
Launching the Yaris Ativ sedan in India will also open the doors for the Yaris hatchback, which is based on the same platform.
