Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) announced the prices for their all-new Innova Hycross MPV in December last year. The showrooms had started accepting bookings for the MPV soon after the unveil in November. Shortly after that, the MPV had started arriving at the dealerships too. Although Toyota Innova Hycross had reached dealerships and stockyards, deliveries for this premium MPV had not started yet. Toyota has now officially started delivering the Innova Hycross MPV to customers and a delivery video of the same has also surfaced online. This is probably the first video of Innova Hycross delivery from India.
The video has been uploaded by Nilansh Desai on their YouTube channel. In this video, we see a white colour Toyota Innova Hycross MPV parked outside a dealership. The customers who bought the MPV can be seen next to it as well. As part of the delivery, the dealership had probably arranged fireworks and a celebration which can be seen on the bonnet of the car.
