Commenting on the sales momentum, Mr. Atul Sood, Vice President of Sales, and Strategic Marketing at Toyota Kirloskar Motor, said, “This year, the offtake of the festive season has been very strong for both TKM and well as the industry. In the month of October 2023, we reported our sales of 21,879 units which is mainly driven by the festive season push along with the strong market acceptance of the entire product line-up, resulting in higher volumes.
For us sustained growth has been coming from across every segment where Toyota has its presence. This upward pattern is resulting in TKM delivering consistent results with fresh bookings remaining strong. Further to models such as the Urban Cruiser Hyryder, Innova Hycross, and Hilux, the recent additions of the All-New Vellfire and the All-New Rumion, have contributed to the positive booking trend. TKM has maintained its segment leadership with models like the New Innova Crysta, Fortuner, and Legender. The Camry Hybrid and Glanza also continue to be significant contributors to the company’s overall success. To further offer greater value to customers this festive season, we also rolled out several attractive service benefits and exciting offers across our dealerships to further enhance customer delight.
This year marks TKM’s 25 years of remarkable journey in India, our efforts continue to be strongly focused towards providing greater customer convenience through the enhancement of the distribution network and improved accessibility to the entire product line-up thus reiterating our customer-centric approach and our constant efforts to get closer to our customers. Given strong market sentiments around Diwali, we remain confident of a very buoyant performance in the coming months as well.”
The month of October also witnessed another successful culmination of the ‘Great 4X4 Expedition by Toyota’, in the East region after having completed thrilling zonal 4X4 SUVs experiential drives in South, West, and North regions. This event served as an exceptional platform to highlight the remarkable capabilities and performance of our 4X4 SUVs, increasing their visibility and appeal.
In addition, the popularity of Toyota’s iconic Hilux also continues to soar as a tough, versatile, and reliable vehicle meant for varied travel requirements. Besides, already marking a significant milestone by joining the fleet at the Indian Army earlier this year, the Hilux was also a part of the Eastern Naval Fleet Drive ‘The Eastern Arc,’ organized by the Eastern Command of the Indian Navy covering 17 cities and spanning approximately 6000 kilometres over 12 days along the East Coast of India. Besides the Hilux, the formidable Fortuner was also a part of the rally that traverses the challenging terrains and rugged off-road routes across various remote locations through the diverse and vibrant landscapes of India’s eastern region.
