In the past time, there have been many signals that Toyota Innova will have a hybrid version to keep up with the new era – where cars are becoming more environmentally friendly and more fuel efficient. The new version of the best-selling minivan is said to be assembled in India as the Toyota Innova HYCROSS.
The time of the car’s launch is said to be from the end of this year to the beginning of next year, coinciding with the time Innova usually comes to life. This raises the question of whether a regular version of the internal combustion-only minivan will still exist, or only a new version with a more “optimal” powertrain will hit the market.
First, Toyota Innova HYCROSS will most likely use the DNGA chassis (TNGA but tweaked exclusively by Daihatsu) that supports many electrified and conventional powertrain options, so the limitation of engine options to one is certain. is not mandatory.

Next, Toyota Innova usually still has many advantages in the region. Good sales in many countries (although it may not be the No. 1 in Vietnam after the appearance of Mitsubishi Xpander, but still dominates the No. 1 car market in Southeast Asia, Indonesia), the design is still mild and stable. The determination and the durable old engine are undeniable advantages and should not be taken lightly.
Finally, only producing Toyota Innova with hybrid powertrain can cause supply difficulties, because the global component supply chain is still experiencing many disruptions and is extremely unpredictable. A line capable of operating 24/7 to ensure sufficient output to meet demand seems to be a more reasonable approach.
Therefore, the suitable position for the Toyota Innova HYCROSS should be above the regular Innova (between Veloz and Innova) instead of directly replacing the original.
