Toyota Aplhard to be Imported into China
Published on September 21, 2010 by Tycho de Feijter
Toyota will bring the Alphard to China as an import, the big MPV will be available from October. The Alphard comes with two engines: a 2.4 with 170hp and a 3.5 V6 with 280hp. It will be expensive, 2.4 starts around 400.000 yuan and the 3.5 at 600.000.
That is a lot of money for a van, and Chinese buyers don’t particularly like mpv’s but prefer suv’s instead. It so is a bit of a mystery why Toyota thinks it is a good idea to launch this vehicle now. Low sales expected! (Car on pic an Alphard road testing in China).
