It's Official: Toyota Motor PH Starts Tease Of First-Ever (Innova) Zenix; Retail Sales Start June 22

Toyota Motor Philippines’ (TMP) drive to carbon neutrality continues to get stronger with the addition of the all-new Toyota Zenix to its Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) lineup.

We did manage to leak the specs and some details surrounding this very important hybrid MPV, but at least it can now be confirmed: the much-anticipated Toyota HEV MPV will be officially launched in the country with retail sales starting on June 22, in all Toyota dealerships nationwide.

As the pioneer in electrified mobility, TMP advocates for a multiple pathway approach to carbon neutrality. Part of this strategy is continuously expanding its range of electrified vehicles that are appropriate for current market and infrastructure conditions and are suitable for the customers’ needs.

“We are very excited to finally bring in the all-new Toyota Zenix, further boosting Toyota’s wide range of electrified vehicle choices for Filipino families,” said Danny Cruz, Toyota Motor Philippines' First Vice President for Vehicle Sales Operations. “We acknowledge the growing demand for electrified vehicles in the country and we appreciate our customers’ conscious efforts to opt for sustainable mobility. Widespread adoption of electrified vehicles is one of our goals and we would like to support this by providing practical and suitable choices.”

The all-new Toyota Zenix will soon be featured in Toyota’s HEV activities and both its HEV and gas variants will be on display in select dealerships nationwide. Price for the all-new Toyota Zenix will start at P 1,670,000.00 for its gas variant and P 1,953,000 for the HEV.


  1. Toyota is applying to the Innova (Zenix) what it did with the Avanza (Veloz).

  2. gone are the days when the Innova was affordable X_x

  3. Affordability left when Gen 2 came in. But with this price spike came more 20th century features. I don't blame them though. This change gave way to more entry level MPVs (Ertiga, Mobilio, Avanza) and China 7-seater crossovers or vans.

    1. I believe Toyota will launch something soon to compete with the Chinese vehicles as well as cheaper alternatives. They'll probably start with the Yaris Cross and more to follow.

  4. the Rush is already left behind, aside from its age it's the only gasoline subcompact MPV/SUV riding in the semi body on frame chasis
