Toyota Vellfire luxury MPV launched in India


Toyota Kirloskar Motor has launched the Vellfire luxury MPV in the country, priced at Rs 79.50 lakh, ex-showroom. The Vellfire is being imported to India as a Completely Built Unit (CBU), which explains the ridiculous price. It’ll compete against the likes of Kia Carnival and Mercedes-Benz V-Class in the country. Obviously, the Kia has the advantage of local manufacturing and hence can offer for a sane price.

Anyway, the Vellfire offered in India looks a bit different compared to the facelift we saw in 2018. It looks similar to the one offered in Indonesia.


The MPV is available only in a single ‘Executive Lounge’ variant in India. Exterior features include auto LED headlamps with integrated DRLs, front fog lamps, sequential turn signals (front & rear), ORVMs with heating & memory function, 17-inch alloy wheels, and twin sunroof.


The Vellfire is all about the interior opulence. Features include powered captain seats for the 2nd row, 16-colour roof ambient illumination, 3-zone AC, sunblinds for the 2nd & 3rd row, and something called VIP Spotlight with Welcome function.


Besides offering generous space and comfort, the captain seats offer power reclining, ottoman, cooling & heating, and memory functions. The front passenger seat is cooled & heated too. The Vellfire also gets an entertainment screen that drops down from the roof, and a 17-speaker JBL audio system. Download the brochure here.

Safety features include 7 airbags, ABS with EBD, Brake Assist, TPMS, Vehicle Stability Control, and Hill-Start Assist.


Powering the Vellfire is a petrol-electric hybrid powertrain. The 2.5-litre (2,494 cc) 4-cylinder petrol engine puts out 86 kW (117 hp) at 4,700 rpm and 198 Nm of torque between 2,800 – 4,000 rpm. There are two electric motors (E-Four AWD); the front motor has an output of 105 kW (143 hp) at 4,500 rpm, while the rear develops 50 kW (68 hp) at 4,608 rpm. The battery of the hybrid system is of nickel-metal hydride (NiMH).
