While it is still unofficial, the dates are more or less firmed up. Market sources have it that Toyota will launch its new IMV (international and innovative multi-utility vehicle) on Indian roads in January 2005.


But first, it is likely to unveiled before the Thai market towards September-October this year. The all-new vehicle will be taken to the ARAI, Pune for homologation in the second half of this year. It will be powered possibly both by CRDi diesel and petrol engines.

Sources say the suspension system for the new vehicle is being currently tested on Indian roads on all-weather conditions on the Kijang, an older MUV. The Toyota will look at making the engines compliant with both Euro II and III emission norms since vehicles in India will be switching to a higher gear from April 2005. While the metros and major cities will graduate to Euro III emission norms and by that understanding to a higher quality of fuel, the rest of India will move up from Euro I to II norms. The engines will basically be designed to be sturdier and tuned up to deal with both fuel types. In fact absence of Euro III compatible fuel has prompted many car makers to postpone some new cars launches because their engines will not perform to the desired level, and will even suffer higher wear and tear.

Market sources say the IMV Project is aimed at greatly enhancing Toyota’s competitiveness by optimising its worldwide development, procurement and production activities through orderly and efficient tie-ups among production bases outside Japan. Key to the network is the supply of various systems and major components between Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Vietnam and India. While this new structure will increase the degree to which Toyota’s production facilities in the Asia region mutually complement one another, it will also establish it as an important international supply base.

Toyota production facilities in Thailand, for example, will fill the role of global supplier for pick-ups, MUVs and diesel engines. Annual pick-up and multipurpose vehicle production in Thailand will be expanded to 200,000 units, half of which will be earmarked for export to more than 80 countries and territories within and beyond Asean. Toyota will increase diesel engine production in Thailand to 240,000 units a year and expects to annually export 130,000 units.

India is being made the base for production of manual transmission systems for various Toyota vehicles. The Rs 480-crore facility (at two locations) will have the capability to produce 168,000 units per annum. The rollout will begin this June.

Meanwhile, even Rav-4 and the new Prado are tipped for a third quarter launch in India this year.

The much-awaited small car from Toyota for the Indian market could
be under the Daihatsu marquee. Industry sources said that Toyota Kirloskar
Motor (TKM), the Indian subsidiary of the Japanese automobile major may
consider launching the Daihatsu brand in India as part of its strategy to
enter the mass-market passenger car category.
Daihatsu has quite a few compact cars that Toyota could consider for a
possible India foray. Of these, sources pointed out that Toyota is likely
to look at four compact car options that are currently being sold under the
Daihatsu brand in a few Asian countries. These include the Daihatsu Cuore,
the Xenia, the Sirion and the YRV.

In addition to these cars, Toyota Motor Corporation and Daihatsu Motor Co
Ltd are also jointly developing a new small car code-named the U-IMV, as
part of the former's IMV project. The jointly developed new small car will
first be produced and sold in the Indonesian market later this year.

This will be the third time that the two companies have worked together to
launch a compact vehicle. The previous two occasions were when the Daihatsu
Cuore was co-developed in the year 2000 for launch in Pakistan and when the
Terios, a compact SUV was jointly developed in 2001 for launch in the
Venezuelan market.

The interesting point to note here is that Toyota has also mentioned that
the U-IMV project small car will go international after testing the waters
in Indonesia. Industry sources add that the car could well be the best fit
for the Indian market too, since Toyota's mission with this new car to make
it affordable for first time, entry-level car buyers.
Mr A. Toyashima, Managing Director of TKM told Business Line that Toyota
may look at bringing in vehicles under the Daihatsu brand. He felt that the
two brands can co-exist and that a similar situation already exists in
neighbouring Pakistan, where the Daihatsu Cuore (also known as the Charade
in other markets) and the Toyota Corolla are extremely popular vehicles.

Mr Toyashima however, refused to elaborate on the products that may be
considered for the Indian market. He felt that there are a number of small
cars that both Daihatsu and Toyota can potentially consider for the Indian
market.

Daihatsu has always been famous for its expertise in developing
mini-vehicles. Toyota owns four important brands globally. Each of the
brands - Toyota, Lexus, Daihatsu and Hino - enable Toyota to uniquely
position vehicles under the respective brand.

The brands have, in turn, helped Toyota to classify the vehicles and
effectively market them to specific customer types under each brand. So,
while the Lexus brand exemplifies luxury, the Daihatsu brand epitomises
compact, fuel-efficient vehicles. Toyota also manufactures high-end compact
cars like the Yaris, the Avanza and the VIOS

Hi
Tavera to be launched soon is first going to be launched in the lower end versions. The front seats are like 1+ 2 but the person sitting in the middle has to sit with wide open legs as the transmission comes in between.
The rear third row seat is only 170 mm high , so you can think how a person can sit .
The engines are assembled by HM in Pithampur plant .
They are targetting the Taxi segment .
Hope the Optra Magic works for GM again in Tavera !
