The Toyota Vellfire launched in India on 26 February 2020. It is a 7-seater ultra-luxurious MPV, targeting wealthy connoisseurs who prefer luxurious space and comfort. It is brought to the Indian market via the CBU (Completely Built Unit) route, as local production seems far from reality.
It features a 115hp 2.5l petrol engine coupled with two electric motors. The front electric motor produces 140bhp while the rear electric motor produces 67bhp. Its self-charging hybrid technology uses a nickel metal hydride battery. Toyota emphasized that this technology is effectively an electronic '4WD' format.
The Vellfire has plenty of creature comforts, a fuel-saving smart hybrid drivetrain, and spectacular seats offering supreme comfort. Sure, you don't get an E-Class-like ride comfort or cabin insulation, but Toyota's bulletproof reliability does give you that peace of mind.
At a price of approximately Rs 90 lakhs (ex-showroom), its sales figures have remained thin.
Powering the Vellfire is a BS-VI compliant 2.5l petrol-hybrid engine churning out a combined power output of 197hp and 235 Nm of torque.
The Vellfire is only available as a hybrid in India. The setup includes a 2.5l (2494 cc) petrol engine, paired with two electric motors.
The Toyota Vellfire gets a CVT gearbox (Continuously Variable Transmission).

The Toyota Vellfire, the big daddy of the Innova, was launched in India on 26 February 2020.
With this, Toyota seeks to appeal to affluent consumers who care about personal luxury space, opulent comfort, status, and uniqueness. The latest update on the Vellfire? Toyota has increased the price by Rs. 4 lakh.
The Toyota Vellfire is offered only in a single, fully-loaded variant, which happens to be a hybrid automatic – Executive Lounge. It comes in four attractive color options – Black, Graphite, Pearl White, and Burning Black.
The Velflfire’s top features include full LED automatic headlamps, fog lights with cornering function, electrically adjustable ORVMs, keyless entry and go, leather upholstery, dual sunroof, powered side doors, electrically adjustable second-row captain seats, powered tailgate, three-zone climate control, heating, ventilation, and memory function for the front and second-row seats, powered leg rest, ambient interior lighting, sun blinds for the second and third rows, and 17-speaker JBL sound system.
Its key safety features include 7 airbags, ABS with EBD, Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Vehicle dynamic integrated management (VDIM), hill hold and assist, parking camera with sensors, and a tyre pressure monitor.
The Toyota Vellfire is available only in a single variant in the Indian market, priced at Rs 89.85 lakhs (ex-showroom), and competes against the Mercedes Benz V Class.
This enormous MPV boasts an immense road presence, making even the Innova look small before it.
Thanks to the Vellfire’s high-set cabin, visibility from the driver's seat is excellent.
Offers spectacular seat comfort with immensely comfortable, snug, spot-on cushioning
The first and second rows benefit equally from the heating, cooling, and memory settings. The passenger's seat also gets the powdered leg rest feature.
Offers expansive space, more than you’ll ever need.
The Vellfire is a smart hybrid, saving big on money and the environment.
Backed by Toyota's bulletproof reliability.
Despite its massive size, it is relatively easy to drive. The steering is simple, and the huge glass area provides a great lookout.
Being imported as a CBU (Completely Built Unit), the Toyota Vellfire has a very high sticker price.
Does not have a diesel engine on offer
No manual variant is available.
The interior doesn't feel all that upmarket, especially considering the price range.
Ride comfort isn't all that plush – there is a hint of stiffness to the ride, more than one would want in a luxury MPV
Cabin insulation could be better, as road noise becomes a bit evident at high speeds.
The Vellfire lacks the snob appeal of, say, the V-Class from Mercedes.
For the time being, the Vellfire is a CBU (Completely Built Unit) because local manufacturing cannot fulfill the expected volumes of 600 units per year. So, at almost Rs. 89.85 lakhs (ex-showroom), the Vellfire is far from a good value for money vehicle.
With the Vellfire, Toyota seeks to appeal to rich consumers who care about personal luxury space, opulent comfort, status, and uniqueness. Because it's a CBU, the premium price range doesn't reflect the brand's image.
Though the Vellfire falls behind the V-Class in terms of sheer brand value, it demolishes it with its bucket loads of creature comfort features. The seats are incredibly comfortable, and the space, too, is immense.
Best features on the Vellfire include full LED automatic headlamps, keyless entry and go, leather upholstery, dual sunroof, powered side doors, electrically adjustable captain seats in the second row, powered tailgate, three-zone climate control, heated, ventilation, and memory function for both the front and second-row seats, powered leg rest, ambient interior lighting, and 17-speaker JBL sound system.
A petrol-hybrid powertrain provides the driving force for this colossal MPV. As far as the driving experience goes, the Vellfire is surprisingly easy to become comfortable in for a vehicle of its size. The Vellfire also has a pure EV mode; however, you will be required to put very careful throttle control to drive without emitting any pollutants from the tailpipe. The Vellfire retains a combined mileage of around 16 kmpl.
Furthermore, the Toyota Vellfire comes loaded with safety features. Notable ones include 7 airbags, ABS with EBD, Electronic Stability Control (ESC), (VDIM), hill hold and assist, parking camera with sensors, and a tyre pressure monitor.
At an ex-showroom price of Rs 89.85 lakhs, it's hard to get convinced by the Vellfire. However, the amount of real estate that the Vellfire offers will not let you miss the lavish rooms of your home. In conclusion, if you need something huge and comfortable that stands out of the crowd, and price isn't your area of concern, the Vellfire can be on your list. However, the big question that you need to ask yourself is: after spending that sum of money, would you really want to be seen in a Toyota?
