  • Toyota to discontinue the entire Etios range.

  • The production of the BSVI-compliant Toyota Fortuner and Innova will commence shortly.

  • The Toyota Fortuner and Toyota Innova Crysta price could rise by Rs 3 to 5 lakhs.

The imposition of BS-VI emission norms from April 01, 2020, will result in the banning of the sales of any BS-IV compliant vehicles in India. Hence, all auto manufacturers are upgrading their existing models to comply with BS-VI emission norms. 

Toyota has different plans, as they are discontinuing the entire Toyota Etios range. Upgrading these cars could prove unfeasible. As they do not show encouraging sales, Toyota has announced not to invest in upgrading these vehicles. It includes the diesel variant of the Toyota Etios Cross, as well.

The company plans to upgrade the Toyota Innova Crysta and Toyota Fortuner to achieve BSVI compliance. However, it could increase the Toyota Innova Crysta and Toyota Fortuner price by Rs 3 to 5 lakhs. These cars require new filters and a revamped exhaust system to reduce emissions.

Though the price increase can discourage many prospective buyers, it is inevitable. Therefore, one could see a surge in demand for petrol counterparts. Upgrading a petrol engine to comply with BS-VI norms is less complicated and involves fewer costs.

N Raja, Deputy MD of Toyota Kirloskar Motor, states that educating customers, especially the fleet transport operators about the increase in the price is essential. He also said that customers should know about alternative solutions. He opines that the fleet and transport operators should invest in BS-IV compliant vehicles before the BSVI emission norms kick-off.
