In an exciting turn of events for Pakistani drivers, Toyota is all set to launch its first hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) next month. Indus Motor Company’s CEO, Ali Jamali, shared some key insights into the company’s approach during a recent press briefing, highlighting a significant $100 million investment in local HEV production.
Affordable Green Driving
Toyota’s Corolla Cross HEV is expected to make waves in Pakistan’s automotive scene, offering an eco-friendly driving experience at an affordable cost. With the nation grappling with inflation, the promise of exceptional fuel efficiency makes the Corolla Cross an enticing option for budget-conscious consumers.
Local Production, Global Impact
The $100 million investment isn’t just about reducing import costs; it’s a strategic move that aims to boost local production and contribute to an annual saving of $37 million. As Toyota scales up production to 30,000 HEV units, the impact on both the domestic market and the global automotive industry is likely to be substantial.
Corolla Cross: From CBU to Locally Assembled
Originally introduced as a Completely Built Unit (CBU), the Corolla Cross made an initial impact on Pakistani roads. Now, with local assembly in the pipeline, the hybrid crossover is poised to further solidify Toyota’s presence in the country’s growing market for hybrid vehicles.
Countdown to a Greener Future
As the launch date approaches, excitement is building among consumers and automotive enthusiasts. The Corolla Cross HEV’s arrival in 2023 reflects Toyota’s dedication to providing cutting-edge, environmentally conscious vehicles tailored to the Pakistani market’s needs.
