Toyota models sold in India not part of global recall

Chennai, Feb 18 (IANS) None of the India made models figure in the global recall of around 2.87 million units by Japanese automobile maker Toyota Motor Company, said Toyota Kirloskar Motor Pvt Ltd.

“India models are not involved in this recall,” an official of Toyota Kirloskar Motor, a joint venture between the Japanese car maker and India’s Kirloskar group, told IANS in an email on Thursday.

On Thursday, the Toyota Motor Company said it would recall around 2.87 million vehicles globally owing to the possibility of their seat belts being damaged in an accident.

The global recall involves Toyota’s sports utility vehicle (SUV) models – RAV4 and Vanguard.

In India, Toyota Kirloskar rolls out SUVs Innova and Fortunner while Prado and Land Cruiser are imported as completely built units.

Toyota Kirloskar said that none of the above models are involved in the recall and the possibility of seat belt getting damaged in an accident as in the case of recalled models are remote.
