Reports indicate that Toyota has opted to suspend the distribution of diesel models for popular vehicles such as the Innova Crysta, Fortuner, and Hilux in India. This decision stems from the discovery of an issue in the horsepower output certification test for the diesel engines used in these models.
As a response, Toyota Industry Corp., a subsidiary of Toyota Motor Corp., has announced the temporary cessation of supply for these three models. It’s crucial to note that Toyota emphasized there are no concerns related to the emission and safety of these vehicles. The company will continue to accept bookings for the affected models, and they have assured that existing owners’ vehicles remain unaffected by these irregularities.
