Toyota Car Sales August 2022
Toyota anticipates a boost in domestic sales during the upcoming holiday season, and the soon-to-be-released Urban Cruiser Hyryder is anticipated to have a significant impact on the midsize SUV market. The five-seater shares a lot of similarities with the upcoming Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara thanks to their shared Global C platform.
Its 1.5-liter four-cylinder mild-hybrid K15C petrol engine, which is mated to either a five-speed manual or a six-speed torque converter automatic transmission, generates a maximum power output of 103 PS and a peak torque of 135 Nm. With this powertrain, a four-wheel drive system is also available.
Toyota New Car Will Again Boost The Sales
A powerful hybrid system and the 1.5-liter, three-cylinder Atkinson Cycle TNGA petrol engine combine to produce a maximum power output of about 115 PS. It makes a specific EV mode available. Toyota will introduce the new generation Innova HyCross after the Hyryder, with a local launch scheduled for January 2023. In the upcoming months, the second-generation Urban Crusier based on the most recent Brezza will also go on sale.
