Supporting and encouraging the Government’s initiatives to go green with environment-friendly BS-VI compliant vehicles, the company introduced its first BS-VI compliant petrol variant of Toyota Glanza in June 2019. This was followed by the start of production of BS-VI compliant petrol variant of Toyota Yaris in December 2019 and the BS-VI diesel variant of Innova Crysta earlier this month.
The recent commencement of BS-VI diesel variant of Toyota Fortuner production marks TKM’s full and final transition into a 100 per cent BS-VI manufacturing facility. Bookings for BS-VI vehicles have already commenced and deliveries of BS-VI diesel vehicles to customers would be made in a phased manner, depending on diesel BS-VI fuel availability.
