The company also mentioned that it would operate at the prescribed workforce strength of 50 per cent following the Covid-19 guidelines. The operations in the plant will also adhere to all State and Central Government directives.

The Japanese car manufacturer made it very clear that they continuously monitor the situation and make decisions as and when required. The manufacturing process will also take all possible Covid-19 related measures, thus safeguarding the employees and the workforce. TKM said that it would revamp the production of new cars to fulfil the market demand.

TKM’s Plan Post 2nd Wave Of Covid-19

The 2nd wave of Covid-19 was quite overwhelming for the entire country. The sales in the automotive sector were a significant loss. And hence, automotive firms are slowly starting to resume production and gain back the customer’s confidence to kick start the sales. Measures like vaccinating the workforce at the dealerships and workshops.

The brand is also taking necessary Covid-19 steps to go a long way in ensuring the company’s dedication towards protecting the customers from the deadly virus. TKM has also started the vaccination drive for its employees and their family members. Along with this, the company is also extending its support to vaccinate its dealers and supplier staff. This will help minimize the risk and severity of the infection.

Toyota India And Its Road Ahead

Recently, we learned that Toyota had trademarked the names’ Hilux’ and ‘Hilux Revo in India. We are assuming that the company is planning to bring in pickup trucks around the festive season. If launched, Hilux will go head to head with the Isuzu D-Max, which has a sticker price starting at INR 17.05 lakh.

Along with Maruti Suzuki, Toyota will start their vehicle dismantling and recycling centre located in Noida next month. Both car manufacturers have 50 per cent equity in this dismantling centre. This is in line with the Central Government’s ‘Vehicle Scrappage Policy’ which aims to remove all the old vehicles plying on Indian roads.
