Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) launched the latest version of Innova MPV, the Innova Crysta, in May. The Crysta has received a positive response with average monthly sales over 7,000 units and waiting period soared up to three months within a short span of time. Currently, the waiting period for the MPV stands at two months, according to a company statement.

"The Innova Crysta continues to grow and we would like to thank our customers for placing their faith in the brand and the product. Launched in May 2016, the Innova Crysta still has a waiting period of up to 2 months," said N. Raja, Director and Sr. Vice President of Sales and Marketing at TKM.

Riding on Innova Crysta, TKM registered 3 percent growth in July sales over the same period last month. The auto company has received over 30,000 bookings for the MPV so far.
