Toyota Kirloskar Motor has received the green signal from the Karnataka government to expand its manufacturing facility in the state. The Japanese carmaker, which has its factory in Bidadi, will be expanding the facility to increase production capacity of the likes of Fortuner, Innova Crysta and Urban Cruiser as well as hybrid vehicles like the newly-unveiled Urban Cruiser Hyryder SUV. On Friday, the state government approved Toyota's proposal among 18 industrial projects worth 34,432 crore.

Toyota Motor will invest 3,600 crore in the state to manufacture hybrid vehicles, along with its ICE models like Fortuner, Innova Crysta and others, at this facility. The expansion plan is linked to Toyota's future roadmap which includes manufacturing hybrid cars for the Indian markets. Toyota had said it would take the hybrid route, because EV infrastructure in India is not yet ready for electric vehicles.
