Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) has announced a customer service support program in the wake of Cyclone Michaung, which has affected several regions of Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Puducherry. The automaker, in association with its dealer partners in Chennai and Andhra Pradesh, has set up emergency helpline numbers and designated personnel for immediate assistance. The company is using specially equipped Hilux pickups for the rescue and movement of submerged vehicles to dealerships for repairs and servicing.

Toyota has extended the operating hours at dealerships due to the higher influx of vehicles in the aftermath of the floods, while dealer outlets are also facilitating vehicle pick-up and drop services to customers at their doorsteps. The company has also involved the Toyota Tsusho Insurance Broker India Private Limited (TTIBI) to communicate essential information to customers regarding precautionary measures to be taken during a flood.
