Toyota Motor Philippines is reportedly bringing back the Toyota Tamaraw to the country. The model was discontinued in 2007.

An upcoming Toyota Tamaraw for the local market was confirmed by Toyota Motor Philippines president Atsuhiro Okamoto who said in an interview “We were committed to investing ₱4.4 billion for the light commercial vehicle — LCV, that’s called Toyota IMV (Innovative International Multi-purpose Vehicle) – zero project, like do you know the Tamaraw in the past?”

“It’s the new generation Tamaraw project,” Okamoto added. “We will enter this in the IMV-zero in the near future.” The production and manufacturing will be done in the Philippines at Toyota’s assembly plant in Santa Rosa, Laguna.

When asked about when the production of the new Tamaraw will begin, Okamoto replied that its “coming soon” but not this year.

Okamoto added that the new Toyota Tamaraw will be different, something akin to a utility van. The affordable utility vehicle will benefit industries, as well as MSMEs (micro, small, and medium enterprises).
