Aravind

Aravind Jayachandran,

It goes without saying that I’m a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

To launch for sale in 3 days.

Speaking to India Today, N Raja, Director and Senior VP, Sales and Marketing, hopes that the arrival of the 2016 Toyota Fortuner in the Indian market will help increase overall sales figures of the company.

Bookings for the new Toyota Fortuner are currently accepted pan-India for a deposit of INR 2 lakhs.

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.
