Toyota Innova Diesel Bookings Stopped: Toyota Innova Crysta can be launched early next year with several major updates. It is still on top in its segment. The brand value of the Innova nameplate is high, due to which it sells well in its segment. However, as per some media reports, Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) has recently issued an internal notice regarding the availability of its diesel variants, stating that the company will stop shipping the diesel Innova Crysta to dealers from August 2022. And from September 2022 only petrol variants will be sold.
According to the reports, there will be no new bookings for Innova Diesel. Dealers will not be able to make new bookings for Innova Diesel. Only Innova Petrol can be booked. However, the existing bookings of the Diesel Innova will be supplied. These will be sent as per schedule. Also, the bookings for the Diesel Innova will resume in January 2023. At the moment, it is not clear why the booking of Innova Diesel has been stopped. However, it is possible that the production of diesel Innova has been stopped to prepare the assembly line and supply chain network for the next generation Innova.
It is worth noting that the supply cut may hurt the sales figures but the company can prepare a new model of Innova by January 2023 to limit the loss. The new 2023 Toyota Innova High Cross Hybrid is expected to get several major updates. There is a lot of possibility of getting a hybrid petrol unit in it. It is also possible that the petrol hybrid variant may replace the diesel variant in future as it is no secret that OEMs across the world are avoiding offering diesel engines in passenger cars due to stringent emission norms.
