While the plant is still some years away from commencing operation, Toyota has said that one of the models to roll out of the facility will be the Innova HyCross. The more upmarket alternative to the Innova Crysta has proven to be popular with buyers in the country with Toyota even having to stop accepting bookings for the fully-loaded variants due to supply challenges. Bookings for the variants were closed back in April and have yet to resume. The hybrid also still commands a waiting period of over a year. Toyota said that other models would be considered on a case-by-case basis.

The company however did not directly comment on the manufacturing of EVs in India in the near future. Toyota said that it had the technology present in its portfolio in global markets and would bring it to India at the right time. The company however committed to localizing its products in India highlighting that it was locally assembling key components such as engines and gearboxes for many of its cars in the country.
