Toyota has been recording a downfall since last several months in India. The company registered 19 per cent decline in February sales as March fared even worse, with the company selling only 9,152 units as against 21,143 units in the corresponding year. However, the fall in sales is majorly due to sluggish economic conditions and because of no new model updates. Toyota is currently offering 9 products in India- Etios Liva, Etios, Innova, Fortuner, Camry, Camry Hybrid, Prius, Land Cruiser Prado and LC200. The company is launching two new models, Etios Cross and the new-generation Corolla Altis, later this month.
