Mr. N Raja, Director and Senior Vice – President, Sales and Marketing said, “We sold 10,464 units in the domestic market last month, due to limited production on account of the planned shutdown. We deeply regret the inconvenience caused to our customers due to this. We currently have a waiting period of approx 25 – 30 days for the Innova and about 50 – 60 days for Fortuner. It is our endeavor to make the deliveries of vehicles on a timely basis.
Fortuner has been well appreciated by the customers and still remains the first choice in its segment. The Fortuner available in automatic and manual transmission in two wheel and four wheel drive gives a wide range of choice and caters to varied customer requirements.”
