Toyota launches diesel engine plant.
IN tune with the government’s Make in India initiative, Toyota Industries Engine India (TIEI), a joint venture between Kirloskar Systems Ltd. (KSL) and Toyota Industries Corporation - Japan (TICO), on Thursday announced the inauguration of a Rs 1,100 crore engine plant at Jigani Industrial Area, Bengaluru.

The plant will only be its third facility globally to manufacture its Global Diesel (GD) engine. Till now it was being manufactured at its plants in Thailand and Japan.

Spread across 22 acres, the plant has a production capacity of 108,000 units per annum and manufactures 1GD-FTV 2.8 litre and 2GD-FTV – 2.4 litre engines that are in compliance with BS 4 / Euro 4 emission standards.

“The plant also has the provision to upgrade to BS 5 and 6 / Euro 5 and 6,” the company said.

The current restrictions on sale of diesel-powered cars have perturbed the company. The Supreme Court had banned the sale of diesel-powered cars of more than 2,000 cc in Delhi and NCR region. The company had gone slow on its plans to introduce high-end cars in the country due to a lack of clarity on the policy front.

Anant G Geete, Union Minister for Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises, who was present at the event, said, “We will take a comprehensive view about the current diesel ban on vehicles above 2000cc, both on the development and environment front along with its impact on the investment climate.”

Geete said that the Centre has filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court keeping the auto industry in mind. He also said that the Centre would spend Rs 60,000 crore on helping introduce technology for producing Euro VI fuel in the country.

“The 2.4 litre and 2.8 litre engines equip manual transmission and automatic transmission of Innova Crysta respectively. The 2.4-litre 2GD-FTV engine is 47% more powerful and 13% more fuel efficient. And the 2.8-litre 1GD-FTV engine is 71% more powerful and 7% more fuel efficient, in comparison to the earlier used 2KD engine,” the company said.
