Mr Raja was quoted saying:

We are very excited about the all-new Fortuner and are confident that we will be able to meet our customer’s expectations.

Sales of Toyota products in the last two months have been impacted by unforeseen holidays that were called on account of the unrest in Bengaluru in September as well as the festival holidays in October. Now, production of its portfolio is in full swing, including the all-new Fortuner which will go on sale on November 7.
