TKM, a joint venture between the world’s largest carmaker Toyota and the Kirloskar Group, attributed the growth to healthy sales of its new models Etios and small car Liva.
“We have registered a growth of 105% in September sales. This growth can be attributed to the sales of Etios and Etios Liva clocking a total of 5,926 units,” TKM deputy managing director (marketing) Sandeep Singh said.
