Auto Updates: Toyota Innova Hycross GX(O) bookings!


Toyota:  Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) launched the Toyota Innova Hycross in December 2022. Since then this car has been selling well and its demand is very high in India. The company stopped booking for the top model ZX and ZX(O) hybrid variants in April 2023, which was started again a year later in April 2024. But now again after just one month, Toyota has stopped the booking of these top model hybrid vehicles.


What is the reason for this? 

The biggest reason for stopping the booking of these trains is the very long waiting period. The waiting period for these hybrid variants is up to 15 months and it is expected that booking will start again only when this waiting period reduces. But you can still book the mid-level VX and VX (O) hybrid vehicles. To book these trains you will have to pay Rs 50,000. The waiting period for these vehicles is about 3 months.

Toyota Innova Hycross GX (O) Petrol has a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine that produces 173 horsepower and 209Nm of torque.
