Toyota to launch Innova Crysta 2.7L Petrol by Diwali this year

To counter supreme court’s ban on the diesel vehicles in Delhi-NCR, Toyota is planning to launch it’s all new Innova Crysta with a 2.7-litre Petrol engine by Diwali this year, says a report of Financial Express.

Supreme court has banned registration of new diesel vehicles in Delhi-NCR with displacement more than 2000cc which directly effects the SUV makers like Mahindra and Toyota. While Mahindra found a way out by launching 1.99-litre diesel engines for Scorpio and XUV500, Toyota is going for the petrol option.

In an interview with Financial Express, N Raja, director and senior vice president (sales & marketing), Toyota Kirloskar Motor said, “We have seen our sales coming down by 800 units a month in Delhi since December after the Supreme Court ban. To address this issue, we have fast tracked the development of a 2.7 litre petrol engine. Our R&D engineers in Japan are working on the new engine. We plan to launch the petrol variant of Innova Crysta in Delhi-NCR markets by Diwali this year.”

Toyota has launched new generation of Innova earlier this month with prices of ₹ 13.84 lakh to ₹ 20.78 lakh (Ex-showroom, Mumbai) available with 2.4-litre and 2.8-litre diesel engine options but the car cannot be sold in Delhi-NCR due to the ban.

Toyota is already selling Innova with 2.0-litre petrol engine in Thailand and Indonesia but for India, an all new 2.7 litre engine is being developed and will be launched by the festive season this year.
