Diesel engines may come off from Honda and Toyota
The outburst of diesel variants in cars from Maruti and Hyundai has made Honda and Toyota to develop engines. Normally the installation of diesel engine plants involve lot of money but these two companies are in the process. Honda has no diesel variant to any of its line up in India and hence the move is to develop a small engine. Toyota is offering diesel version of its Corolla Altis, to be the first diesel variant from Toyota in India. There is a huge market for diesel version in Europe and there is always a promising scope for diesel cars. Honda is to finalize its position in this regard – time and the model. Toyota gains a lot-90%- from diesel vehicles of SUVs like Innova and Fortuner. The company gives due weightage to gasoline too.
