upcoming toyota cars in india in 2022 2023

Toyota is poised to launch 6 new cars into the field, not including the recently unveiled Hilux. Coupled with a sure-success alliance with Maruti Suzuki, Toyota is all set to play the field in different segments of the domestic market.

Toyota Kirloskar Motor recorded 72% growth in sales last year with the demand trend gravitating towards pre-Covid times with high customer orders across models in December.

UPCOMING TOYOTA CARS

Let’s have a look at upcoming Toyota cars in India:

  • New Toyota Glanza
  • New Toyota D22 mid-sized SUV
  • New Urban Cruiser
  • Rumion MPV – rebadged Ertiga
  • New Toyota MPV – Codenamed 560B
  • Belta sedan – rebadged Ciaz

 

Toyota Hilux

When asked about the company’s vision with the design and launch of these new models, a spokesperson said, “Looking forward, in 2022, our aim is to expand our footprints with special focus on Tier-2 & 3 markets. Growth for TKM is not just defined in terms of sales numbers but with an enhanced product portfolio, we hope we will be able to cater to more segments as well as newer markets in 2022 and beyond.”

They also noted, “In line with this, we would like to enhance our efforts towards achieving national objectives towards Carbon Neutrality. As pioneers of electrified technologies, TKM will continue to focus on mass electrification and decarbonization by encouraging localization of electrified vehicle parts and take actions across the lifecycle from production, distribution, and usage.”

It is suggested that Toyota will launch the new Glanza hatchback and the Urban Cruiser in the first half of 2022 along with the pickup truck, Hilux.

The mid-sized SUV is codenamed D22 and produced by Suzuki and Toyota jointly. After almost 5 years, this D22 will be an essential launch in the SUV segment for Toyota. Planned to be officially launched around Diwali of 2022, this utility vehicle is expected to house Toyota’s hybrid technology.

D22 will be built on DNGA (Daihatsu New Generation Architecture) that underpins the new Avanza and the Raize. Maruti Suzuki may also launch the same vehicle under their banner with a slightly different design.

Toyota has announced definite plans on producing 45,000 units of the D22 in the next fiscal year, a third of this being the hybrid variant. The production will be increased to 2 lakh units later along with global export. D22 will be manufactured at Toyota’s Karnataka facility in Bidadi. This is done with the aim of increasing the local production that will lower the fixed cost per unit and result in the uplift of the financial performance of Toyota’s Indian arm. FY22 has recorded Toyota’s first loss in almost five years. D22 after its launch will run against Creta in the domestic and international markets.

Calling the series of new launches the “Big Leap,” Toyota has more than the above-discussed SUVs in its pocket. The multipurpose vehicle, 560B will be a 7-seater C-segment vehicle with Toyota’s hybrid technology. Most likely to be designed on DNGA, this vehicle is planned to be set loose against the Kia Carens and the Mahindra Marazzo. This MPV might be a revamped version of a global model since there are reports on Daihatsu designing an MPV based on DNGA as well.

With its positioning against the Carens, the new MPV should also be powered by similar powertrains and fitted with equivalent features. The expected launch date of 560B is in 2023.

The other anticipated MPV on the list is the re-badged Ertiga, christened as Rumion MPV in India. Toyota also plans to release a mid-sized sedan, named Belta which is the re-badged model of Ciaz. The launch of both these will be in late 2022 or early 2023.

With this ambitious short-term plan, Toyota may yet regain its lost position in the Indian market and have a comeback.
