"Our cumulative wholesales from January to October has also reported a growth of 78 per cent when compared to sales in the corresponding period last year," Sigamani added.

Besides the flagship models like Toyota Innova Crysta and the Fortuner SUV, the carmaker's premium luxury MPV Vellfire too has been performing exceptionally well, said Sigamani. "The Glanza and the Urban Cruiser are garnering good booking orders and we are working towards immediately catering to the pending orders in these segments," he added.

Toyota's increase in sales, especially the performance of Fortuner SUV, comes at a time when Ford Motor decided to shut its shop in India. It meant the end of the road for Fortuner's ace rival in the segment - Ford Endeavour. Toyota recently launched a new 4X4 variant of its flagship Fortuner Legender SUV. It is expected to further cement its place as the segment leader in the large SUV category.

The Legender was first launched in January this year with a 4X2 diesel variant along with the facelift version of the Fortuner SUV. The 4X4 version of the Fortuner Legender has been priced at 42.33 lakh )ex-showroom).
