Great more cross dressing by Suzuki and Toyota (no offence meant to any one).
Personally I would get the Urban Cruiser over the Brezza. When can we see Suzuki getting something out of the deal. Can't wait till the Toyota start transferring their Hyrbid tech to Suzuki. Wait, I hope that is part of the deal.

Scoop! Toyota-Maruti working on a small car & an MPV

We have received new information on Toyota and Maruti Suzuki's future products. There are two main projects that are currently running under the Toyota-Suzuki partnership. These include a small car and an MPV.

Toyota & Suzuki to supply cars to each other in India-toyotasultracompactbev2.jpg

A Toyota small car (codenamed: 560B) is said to be in the works. It is expected to be launched by the end of 2021 or early 2022. More details on this car are awaited, but it could be the compact battery electric vehicle (BEV) that has been in the news since 2019.

The second car that is presently under development is an MPV that could be positioned between the Ertiga and Innova. It is believed to be an all-new model and won't be a mere badge engineering job. The new MPV will probably be launched in the second quarter of 2022.

In the meantime, Maruti Suzuki is gearing up to launch the next generation Celerio in India. Test mules have already been spotted on the streets and the car appears to be larger than the current model.

Thanks to the Team-BHP fan (he prefers to remain anonymous) who sent this information in. Heartfelt gratitude for sharing it with other enthusiasts via the Team-BHP share page!

BEV appears to be inspired by REVA!
If only REVA weren't killed by M&M.

The Toyota C-pod lovely as it is, would be too small and expensive for India. Around 11+ lakhs.
Wonder if the rumoured one is a Toyota product or the WagonR EV that has been tested for ages.

The MPV most likely would be based on the Daihatsu DN multisix concept ( next gen Avanza(?) )

Wonder why there is no news on the Creta rival? Thought it would come sooner than the MPV.

Toyota Kirloskar plans to take rural road to realise sales potential of Glanza, Urban Cruiser.

Having established its presence in urban centres, Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) is now looking to expand its sales network in rural areas in the country as it aims to tap demand for its entry-level products like Glanza and Urban Cruiser in such locations.
Quote:
"We now plan to go into interior parts of the country as we have already established our sales network in the big cities," TKM Senior Vice President Naveen Soni told PTI in an interaction.

The company needs to bolster its presence in smaller cities, towns and rural areas as the demand for products like Glanza and Urban Cruiser is much stronger in such areas, he added.

"A and B vehicle segments are the primary domain of smaller cities where we do not have adequate presence right now. We are trying to have dealership expansion in such a manner that we can meet the market requirements," Soni noted.

The company currently has around 419 dealers across the country. Last year it opened around 50 outlets of which 70-80 per cent were in the rural areas.

"We are now making a plan for this year. The most important thing that we are proposing now is the focus on smaller townships, the rural India. It is where we are going to focus. It is in such locations where our new products from the alliance partner will be more accepted," Soni said.

Soni said that sales momentum was expected to continue in the next fiscal as well on the back of enhanced demand for personal vehicles owing to COVID-19 crisis and also due to the continuation of pent-up demand from previous months.

"The year has started well. We should end this quarter as the best in the current fiscal..More importantly the month-on-month demand aggregation seems to be happening due to launch of fresh products and the need for personal mobility," he added.

Soni further noted that the company is looking to enhance production capacity at its Bidadi-based manufacturing plant in order to cut the waiting period on its various models.

When asked if TKM is also facing production issues due to the semiconductor shortage, he said: "So far we have been managing but we don't know what will happen in the future. We are sourcing from multiple vendors but if it continues in the future we will have to see."

On plans to hike prices due to rise in input costs, Soni said: " current situation is concerning to us but as far as the final impact is concerned we are monitoring the situation. Typically we don't look into the short term impact. If we are forced to do it, then it would be to mainly accommodate our supplier partners."

Yesterday, I was on my way to Pudukottai, near Trichy I saw " Toyota Service on the move " in a Maruti Suzuki car. Has this got anything to do with Toyota Suzuki relationship.

Do not think this is pertaining to Toyota Suzuki partnership. Omni is omnipresent, cheap, good space for tools and low ownership. This .Ames it the perfect vehicle for mobile servicing, car washing, sanitization etc.
