The Japanese auto major has set its plans to launch its mass marketed hybrid car early next year in India. It had already showcased its model at the International Engineering Trade Fair in New Delhi earlier this year.

The car is initially expected to be imported as Completely Built Unit or CBUs as the Indian arm for Toyota lacks necessary infrastructure to manufacture it locally. It is expected to fall in the price band of Rs. 18 to 22 lakhs. Hybrid cars are extremely fuel efficient and eco-friendly.
