Toyota halts Fortuner bookings ,to reopen in January

With the order backlog crossing 6,000 units, Toyota has stopped taking bookings for its latest sports utility vehicle, Fortuner, in India. The booking process was suspended within just a month of the company resuming the process. Toyota said that the backlog will be cleared by the end of this year, and bookings would reopen again in January 2011.

At the time of reopening the bookings last month, the company already had an order backlog of about 4,000 vehicles.

Meanwhile, Toyota has increased the production of the SUV to over 1,000 units per month. At the time of the launch, the company was producing 500 units of the Fortuner.

Fortuner is available at Rs. 19.35 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
