In an official communication released by Toyota Kirloskar Motor, the car maker stated that it is concerned about the increasing pollution levels which needs immediate attention from all walks of life.
Amidst the ambiguity over enforcement of BS-IV norms, Toyota Kirloskar Motor strongly upheld the Indian Government’s move on phasing out BS III vehicles. The car maker also stated that it has stopped the manufacturing of BS III vehicles more than a year ago. All the vehicles currently being sold in India are BS IV compliant. The car maker also urged the Government to put in place an enabling framework to phase out BS I & BS II vehicles.
Toyota Kirloskar Motor is also further gearing up to meet the future challenges associated with the roll-out of BS VI technology by 2020. The Company remains confident that its Oil & Gas Industry will provide BS VI fuels before 2020 to enable the auto industry to synchronise its production of BS VI compliant vehicles accordingly.
It also added that to emerge as a world-class automotive manufacturing hub for cleaner vehicles, there needs to be a concerted effort from the Government, the Oil & Gas Industry and the Automotive Industry to work closely in creating an enabling ecosystem.
