Toyota Kirloskar Motor will launch a CNG version of its Toyota Innova in end-January 2009. The CNG Innova will cost Rs 75,000 - Rs 90,000 extra, including warranty and installation costs.

It will tie-up with Minda Industries to provide CNG kits for its model. The launch of the CNG Innova is also to keep the product attractive, considering the upcoming launch of the competitor Mahindra Xylo

With regard to sales, Toyota is aiming to boost Innova’s demand, especially in the commercial segment. Toyota’s sales in November were 48 per cent lower at 2,087 units. In April-November, sales remained flat at 35,533 units.
