Toyota Reaffirms Commitment To ‘Grow With India’ Vision

Bengaluru: Earlier this week, Toyota’s Vice Chairman Shekar Viswanathan had stated that the company won’t scale up its operations in India blaming the high tax regime. At the same time, he had mentioned that Toyota will not quit India.

Later, however, Toyota released a statement on its commitment to India stating that it will be making Rs 2,000 crore investment in the country in electric and hybrid technologies.

Now, Masakazu Yoshimura, Managing Director of Toyota Kirloskar Motor, has also given a statement reaffirming the company’s commitment to India:

“Toyota Kirloskar Motor continues to be deeply committed to India and its national objectives. We have firm belief in the core strength of the country’s economic growth potential and are fully committed for continually working towards contributing to the economic development.
