Toyota Motors has a small share of the Indian car market at present. But the company has a brand new hatchback – Etios – lined up for launch by the end of this year or early next year. The company expects the model to contribute about 50 per cent of the total sales in 2011. Recently Malcom Brown Womens Jersey
, the company also launched the diesel variant of its sedan Corolla Altis and at the event the spokesperson, being quizzed by reporters, clearly denied any plans of launching another small car.
However, a report in a leading foreign news agency points otherwise. According to the report Toyota Motor Corp is in the process of developing a new low-cost car for buoyant markets like China and Southeast Asia. The report says that the car is supposed to be launched by the year 2012 under $11,520. The news also appeared in Japan's Chunichi Shimbun newspaper.
In a recent statement Toyota managing director Hiroshi Nakagawa clarified to a car portal saying, “Cars like the Yaris or Vios are not suitable for the Indian market. They cater to certain specific markets like Thailand. It’s not meant for India. However Joe Thuney Womens Jersey
, for the Indian market, we have Etios. There is no hatchback planned below or above this. We are also employing the Kaizen methodology to improve our production process.” But the report suggests that this all new compact car would have Vios and VitzYaris subcompact models as its base. Also, the new car is likely to be localised upto 30-40 percent.
Toyota has been hit badly in the recent times by massive recalls in the US and its image has suffered badly. Also, the company has a very marginal presence in fast developing countries like India, Brazil and China. These steps are likely to help the company gain a piece of these markets that offer great opportunities as the car penetration level per 1000 person is still very low.
In India, Toyota is up against carmakers like Maruti Deatrich Wise Jr. Womens Jersey
, Hyundai, Tata, Volkswagen, Nissan and Ford in the compact segment. Soon Honda would also launch its hatchback in the Indian market.

George Michael, former member of the British pop duo Wham! Devin McCourty Womens Jersey
, passed away on Sunday, according to a statement from the singer's publicist on Monday.
The first Western pop music group to perform in the Chinese mainland, Wham! is probably the most recognizable pop music icon for Chinese who lived through the 1980s, a time when the mainland was just beginning to come into contact with popular foreign culture after the adoption of its reform and opening-up policy in 1978.
The singer's sudden death left many in China in shock and sorrow.
"The duo of Wham! were the biggest foreign stars that ever appeared in front of Tiananmen during the 1980s," commented Sina Weibo user Piaomiaodao Daozhukeen on Monday, referring to a famous picture of Wham! members George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley posing in front the iconic gate which leads to the Forbidden City during their first trip to Beijing.
"Farewell Stephen Gostkowski Womens Jersey
, George. 2016 has been a heart-breaking year for music lovers."
Another netizen, Didue, also wrote on Sina Weibo: "I was so shocked to hear that he [Michael] passed away at 53. He was literally the first European and US musician that I had ever heard of."
"George Michael, my childhood idol! 'Last Christmas,'" famous Chinese actress Lin Xilei posted on Sina Weibo on Monday, ending the post with a crying emoji.
Renowned Taiwan singer Terry Lin posted: "[emoji:breaking heart] Another talented singer has left the world [emoji:candle]."

, Wham! embarked on a world tour which included a visit to China in 1985. Beijing was their first stop in the country. On April 7, the duo performed at the Beijing Workers' Stadium "in front of about 15,000 people," according to a blog post from public WeChat account Qiyudianying. They then went south to Guangzhou, South China's Guangdong Province, which was the tour's second and last stop. For many people who attended the events James White Womens Jersey
, it was the first time they had ever attended a Western music concert.
"Wham! were eager to prove that they were the world's biggest pop band. A concert in China was just the ticket," wrote a BBC report from April 2015 titled "When China woke up to Wham!" The article contributed the success of the duo's China tour plan to their manager, Simon Napier-Bell.
"The duo's manager, Simon Napier-Bell, tried to convince various Chinese officials over lunch that the concert tour was a good idea. His successful sales pitch hinged on how China would appear to the outside world if George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley were allowed to play," the article wrote.
The duo's Beijing debut was a huge success. Though "the audiences were quiet at first Tom Brady Womens Jersey
, since they didn't know how to response to such a concert," they soon got into the groove and began clapping to the rhythm of the music as Michael encouraged them, according to the WeChat article.
A documentary film, Wham! in China: Foreign Skies, directed by award-winning British director Lindsay Anderson recorded Wham!'s 1985 China tour. In the documentary, the majority of the audiences can be seen screaming and moving to the rhythm of the band's "Everything She Wants Rob Gronkowski Womens Jersey
," while Michael sings and dances on the stage, flinging his blonde hair to the music.
Tickets for the concert cost five yuan (72 cents).
"This was affordable considering a jin (0.5 kilograms) of eggs went for 1.29 yuan in Beijing at the time," the Qiyudianying post wrote.
For some, however, even five yuan was quite a lot.
"A ticket cost half a month's salary for some," a blog post from public WeChat account Zhuayinyue. "Many people even came all the way from outside the two cities to attend the concerts."
