Commenting on the sales in August 2013, Mr. Sandeep Singh, Deputy Managing Director and Chief Operating Officer, Marketing and Commercial said “With the rupee depreciation and rising inflation we have increased the prices of Camry Petrol and Fortuner. The prices have been increased by 1%.

Last month we launched the Camry Hybrid, this is in line with offering advanced technology to our customers and encouraging the use of hybrid in India thereby contributing to a greener tomorrow.

The market is still sluggish, however we hope to see the market improve with good monsoons and the upcoming festive season."
