In order to keep the production cost at check, TKM is focusing on more and more localization of parts especially of Etios family. Toyota Kirloskar Auto Parts would belt out the engine and transmission for the enchanted Etios series. As per speculations, around 100,000 engines per annum will be roll out by the next quarter of this year and approximately 240,000 transmission per annum will be produced by the end of next year which will eventually take the tally of domestication of Etios parts from current 70 per cent to 90 per cent.
