With the BS6 emission norms closing in, Toyota will discontinue some of its cars in India.
The stricter BS6 emission norms will be coming into play from 1st April 2020 in India. Many manufacturers have upgraded their vehicles to meet the upcoming norms while a lot of companies are also in the process of discontinuing their cars which don’t generate as many volumes required to justify the costs for the BS6 update, while some cars which are too old are also being discontinued.
Toyota has a huge line-up of cars in India, but we all know that the company sells the Innova Crysta and Fortuner in the highest numbers which is why these cars got upgraded to BS6 first. With the update, the Innova lost out on its 2.8-litre diesel engine while the Fortuner continues with the same powertrain options.
Now, Toyota is going to discontinue a slew of vehicles from its line-up because these vehicles won’t meet the BS6 norms. The list includes the Etios Liva, Etios Platinum, Etios Cross and Corolla Altis. Toyota also discontinued the Land Cruiser Prado, Land Cruiser and Prius recently.
The updated Toyota portfolio will now include the Glanza, Innova Crysta, Fortuner and Camry Hybrid. The Japanese automaker is also gearing up to launch the Vellfire premium MPV in India. Along with that, Toyota is soon going to introduce its own versions of the Ertiga and Vitara Brezza while facelifted versions of the Innova and Fortuner are being readied too.
