Toyota Yaris has been added to the government e marketplace
The Japenese car manufacturer has announced that the Yaris is now available on the government e-marketplace (GeM). GeM is a digital sales platform dedicated to purchasing of goods and services by government organisations, Public Sector units and other official departments. Toyota Yaris will be up for grabs on the GeM for Rs 9.12 lakh (excluding freight charges and taxes).
The car sports features like projector headlamps, alloy wheels, dual-tone interiors, fabric upholstered seats and 15-inch alloy wheels and two-tone interiors. The safety kit includes seven airbags, ABS, EBD and brake assist, remote central locking, manual day/night inside rearview mirror, rear parking sensors and solar energy-absorbing front windshield with infrared cut off. The car is powered by a 1.5-litre petrol engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission that makes 107PS of power and 140Nm of torque.
Naveen Soni, senior vice president of sales and services at TKM, said, "Toyota Yaris is a preferred choice in the segment for its world-class safety, quality, durability and reliability features. The listing of Yaris on the GeM will now ensure that car buyers from central and state governments will have a wider choice in the sedan category. We are cognizant that several Government undertakings are moving towards procurement from the GeM in the post-COVID world and we want to ease their buying experience. Also, the "Covid Warrior" special offer applicable on Yaris has received good response and also given us an opportunity to thank the government employees and doctors for their unwavering services towards containing the Covid pandemic. We are hopeful that this move will help us capitalise on the new B segment opportunity and increase interest from various government departments and PSUs besides. Overall, we aim to cater to the demand on the government side."
