Toyota Lanka offers perfect vehicle range with the widest after-sales coverage for permit scheme holdersWed, 12 Jun 2019
Toyota Lanka, the sole authorised importer and distributor of Toyota vehicles in Sri Lanka, has embarked on a dynamic promotion of an attractive range of vehicles for permit holders. The range includes brand new Toyota and Toyota “Sure” certified domestic cars which are tested and selected by the experts of Toyota Japan ideally suited for government sector permit holders who are on the lookout for a reliable and economical vehicle range.Managing Director of Toyota Lanka, Shungo Yoshioka said, TOYOTA is the most prolific, respected and admired auto brand in the globe who introduced the hybrid, electric, plug-ins and now hydrogen (fuel cells) concepts. He further states; Toyota Lanka holds the prime responsibility as the national distributor for TOYOTA, HINO and Industrial mobility solutions to offer the best product range with the largest model range with Euro 4 constructed engines to suit the local markets and bringing global mobility solutions to Sri Lankan society, making Toyota, your lifestyle partner in mobility.
“We have introduced an affordable range of vehicle models with the manufacturer’s warranty backed with genuinely best after-sales care for the permit holders. We have vehicle models such as the Corolla, Yaris and Hilux double cabs that are already well accepted and have become the foremost and wisest option for State sector employees in the country particularly due to its durability, sleek design and fuel efficiency”, said Manohara Atukorala, Director/COO of Toyota Lanka.
The Rush, Yaris Ativ, Corolla, Hilux and the Prius C are among the range of models currently on offer by the company with best prices in the town.

Toyota Lanka began to expand its branch network after 2003, and is now primarily focused on strengthening its presence in the Western Province, since majority of its customers are based in that region. In addition to the Toyota Plaza in Wattala, the company has also set up ‘3S’ Service (Sales, Service and Spare Parts) facility branches in Ratmalana, Maharagama and Negombo. Later it moved to cities such as Kurunegala, Matara, Kandy and Ampara.

“Our motto is ‘Life-time delighted customers. We treat our customers like our guests offering customer delight experience with the Best-In-Town atmosphere. That’s why we created the ‘Mahagedara’ type of approach to provide maximum self-satisfaction to our customers,” the Director/COO explained. Toyota Lanka was established in 1995, is fully owned by Toyota Tsusho Corporation, a member of Toyota Group companies. Toyota Lanka had set up its ‘Toyota Plaza’ in Wattala as the first automotive company that has a ‘3S’ operation under one roof. We invite to come, see and feel The Toyota Lanka Way at Toyota Mahagederea; the Toyota Lanka with love and admiration.
