In India, you can apply for the purchase of a Toyota Land Cruiser 300: the car will have to wait a year 1

Toyota Land Cruiser 300, enters a new market – India. While the model is available for pre-order for 1 million rupees, however, as noted by Autocar India, “live” SUVs will reach customers in at least a year. The novelty will be delivered from the Japanese factory in Aichi, and only cars with a 3.3-liter V6 diesel engine will be offered in India.

To date, Toyota Land Cruiser 300 is produced only in Japan, and the volume of output was first affected by the global shortage of microchips and local coronavirus restrictions, which led to problems with logistics. As a result, there is a shortage of SUVs in all markets where the model is present – in some countries, the waiting period for ordered cars has stretched for four years.

By July of this year, the situation had worsened: some Land Cruiser 300 configurations would have to wait five years, so Toyota was forced to take unpopular measures – the company temporarily suspended accepting orders. It is also difficult to buy a car on the secondary market since the automaker obliges buyers to sign a ban on reselling the SUV for a certain time.

In India, where the Land Cruiser 300 will be sold exclusively in a diesel version with a 3.3–liter V6 with a capacity of 305 horsepower, the waiting period will take about a year – this assumption is voiced by local journalists. There are five body color options and three interior color solutions to choose from. A 12.3-inch multimedia system screen and a JBL audio system with 14 speakers are announced. In India, the SUV will be offered only in a five-seat version.

Earlier it became known that in the foreseeable future, the production of the Land Cruiser 300 may be localized in China at the facilities of the FAW-Toyota joint venture. Parallel assembly at two factories, in Japan and China, will help the Japanese concern cope with increased demand.
