In December 2022, Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) launched the Innova Hycross in India. Since then, the MPV has enjoyed great success and has been in high demand in our home market. In April 2023, the company temporarily stopped accepting bookings for the top-tier ZX and ZX(O) hybrid models, which were reopened last month. However, barely after a month, Toyota has once again paused bookings for its top-spec hybrid models. The move is a response to an extended waiting period the models currently command, which is about 15 months. Bookings are expected to reopen after some reduction in this duration. Reservations for other variants like VX and VX (O) hybrid, however, are still open for a token amount of Rs 50,000. The waiting duration for these mid-spec variants is about 3 months.
