Spotted – Toyota Hilux in India (not a test mule)
Posted on: Jun 19, 2010 - 7:59am IST
The Toyota Hilux you see here was spotted on the highway stretch between Kolkata and New Delhi. But, if you look closely at the images, the car has an Under Customs sticker on it, with a temporary West Bengal registration, ie – THIS IS NOT A TEST MULE.
Could this be one of the cars seized by the custom officials or was it being delivered to a customer in India?
If you can look beyond the number plate and the reason why it is present, you can feast your eyes on this behemoth of a pick-up truck dominating the a stretch of Indian road.
The Toyota Hilux pick-up is based on the IMV platform which underpins the Fortuner and Innova. The indestructible pick-up truck uses engines ranging from a small 2.0-liter petrol to a 4-liter V6. Toyota told us last year they don’t have intentions to launch the Hilux in India.
