Toyota Kirloskar is on a high. With just one week into the opening of Etios bookings, the company has registered 7,086 bookings of the Etios, 1,200 of those coming from Mumbai alone.

The interest in the Etios has risen after Toyota announced the prices on December 1. The prices start at Rs 4.96 lakh for the base J version, ex-showroom Delhi and goes up to Rs 6.86 lakh for the top-end VX version.


Toyota Kirloskar will ramp up production of the Etios sedan to meet the demand, as waiting period runs into 4-5 months for the car. Production will begin at 2,000 units a month before being ramped up to 3,000 units by March-April.

Toyota Kirloskar has said that the company will launch a diesel version of the Etios by June-July. It will feature a fixed geometry turbocharged 1.4-litre D-4D engine that will produce around 70 bhp of peak power instead of the 87 bhp it produces in the variable geometry version of the engine found on the Toyota Corolla.

The Etios's hatchback version, the Liva will go on sale in March and is expected to be priced very competitively, starting around Rs 4-4.3 lakh. Toyota have denied the possibility of launching a sub-Liva compact on the Etios platform.

Mr. Shriny, i too agree with your comment. I am Vasudevan from Cochin. Toyota is claiming that they have launched their new car ETIOS on 1st DEC. No they have launched only the picture of Etios not the product. Effective launch comes only after selling the product. Not by showing the picture of the product. Even Demo Car (etios) has not reached the dealer in Cochin. The dealer is not able to tell any exact date when the car will be ready for delivery. I doubt whether toyota have commenced the production of Etios.

hehehehe its really funny to see people expecting a TEST ride (Typical indian mentality) . Hope they dont ask for a test cook while buying Rice & Wheat. No Doubts that TOYOTA is indeed Trustful company, not like others and its truly for the people who like quality products and regard company's goodwill. For Test Drives... people can go for Maruti & Hundai

I am from COIMBATORE...how can a Company like Toyota expecting the buyers to book their Etios without even seeing (if not test driven)....Ridiculous..! Just because of this, at least 10 of my known people do not want to book what so ever the Etios is giving.This kind of hyped cars later failed miserably after their real performance. See the case of Nano...?
