Toyota India is doing taking necessary measures to keep up with the growing demand of the Toyota Etios Sedan in India. Also to cater to the upcoming demand of the Toyota Etios Liva due for June 2011 launch, these steps are much needed. Toyota has announced its plans to gradually ramp up the annual production capacity of both its plants in India. The first plant which manufactures the Toyota Innova MPV , Toyota Corolla Altis sedan and Toyota Fortuner SUV will up its production by about 13% to 90000 units annually. The second plant of Toyota India which is dedicated to assembling Toyota Etios has been sharply projected for a rise of 70% increase in its annual production from earlier 70000 units to planned 120000 units per year which is a remarkable increase. All these efforts will be implemented in phased manner starting July 2011 and are meant to reduce the waiting time and boosting demand for the Etios series of Sean and hatchback which are already clocking good sales for Toyota. You can estimate the kind of demand for Etios Sedan by the fact that the Etios production facility will have 33% more capacity than all the other Toyota cars together which are produced or assembled by Toyota in India.
