Toyota to launch a new MPV
Toyota which already sells the Innova MPV plans to launch another MPV in the segment. Few months back, it was speculated that Toyota would launch the Avanza MPV to India as it built on Innova’s IMV platform. However, Toyota seems to go the other ways. The new MPV which toyota plans will be based on the etios platform. Toyota will launch the etios based MPV in 2012.
“There is a room for another model between Etios and Innova. We are seriously considering it and a study is going on for this,” Toyota Motor Asia Pacific Senior Vice President (Area Operations Division) Vonce S Socco told. “If anything like that (launching the model) happens, it will be in 2012 or after that,” Socco said.
