Toyota India has finally announced prices for the Vellfire luxury MPV. To be sold in a single fully-loaded variant, Toyota Vellfire prices start at Rs 79.50 lakh (ex-showroom, pan-India*) for an introductory period. The Japanese brand claims that the first three shipments of the Vellfire are already spoken for. Toyota has also said that customers in Hyderabad account for 20 percent of the total 180 bookings made. 60 units a month is Toyota's allocation for India.
For those who don’t know, the Vellfire is Toyota’s flagship MPV sold globally and comes with a long list of creature comforts. The MPV is on the larger side too – it is 4,935mm long, 1,850mm wide and 1,895mm high, but the highlight is the huge 3,000mm wheelbase. Power comes from a 117hp, 2.5-litre petrol engine coupled with two electric motors. As the two motors – 143hp front and 68hp rear – are mounted on each axle, it acts as a four-wheel-drive system. The setup has an ARAI-rated 16.35kpl fuel efficiency figure.
The three-row Vellfire MPV’s key focus is on the middle-row, which comes with two large chairs replete with an armrest-mounted console that allows for multiple seating configurations. The heated and cooled seats also feature a (very) reclinable backrest, along with an adjust for the legrest angle and length, which means that the middle-row seats can also be converted to a near-flat bed at a touch of a button.
The MPV also gets a 13-inch rear entertainment screen that’s mounted on the roof, a 17-speaker JBL sound system, sunblinds for second and third rows, 16 colour options for the roof lighting, and three-zone auto climate control. Fold-out tables and cupholders also help convert the Vellfire into an office on the move.
While bookings have been open for quite a few months, deliveries for the Toyota Vellfire are expected to begin in the coming days.
