To monitor throttle, crankshaft positions, air intake pressure, the temperature of the engine and the content of the emissions from the exhaust (particulate matter, nitrogen oxide, CO2, Sulphur), even the semiconductors used by the vehicle will have to be upgraded.

To accommodate all such needs, the carmaker has joined Maruti Suzuki, Hyundai, Tata Motors, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Renault, Kia India and MG Motor, in increasing prices of its model range.

Last month, the company registered monthly domestic sales of 7,051 units, which is a growth of 29 per cent for the Japanese car maker in the country. Additionally, 726 units were exported from its manufacturing facility here to overseas markets.
