Is this good news or bad news? We really can't say.

The Toyota Fortuner has surpassed all expectations in India. Prior to the launch, TKM claimed 2,500-odd bookings were recorded and merely days after its launch, it says bookings are shut, thanks to the earth-to-moon long queue.

Toyota says it has received 3,100 orders for the vehicle, a lot more than the monthly manufacturing capability of 550 vehicles in Bidadi, where it also makes the Corolla and Innova.

The CKDs arrive in India from Thailand and Toyota does not have a second plant to shift assembly. It says it will be working to touch the monthly mark of 600 Fortuners to restart bookings as early as possible.
