Toyota's newly launched sports utility vehicle Fortuner has been a massive hit with 3,100 orders. Meanwhile, considering the rush, the company has stopped taking further orders for the next seven months.

Elaborating on the huge demand, Toyota Kirloskar Motor's Marketing Deputy Managing Director Sandeep Singh said they have asked the dealers not to take further orders from customers for the next seven months.

The demand for the new car is such that the company has a backlog of customers willing to buy it. Though at the moment, it is just registering the names of interested clients and is revving up the production to meet the growing demand.

Throwing light on this, Singh said that they can assemble 550 Fortuners per month and are working to touch the 600 mark.

The sports utility vehicle Fortuner is priced at Rs 18.45 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

Toyota Motor Corporation had launched Fortuner in 2005 and since then it has sold 2.5 lakh units in more than 60 nations.
