Now a Toyota Innova gets a cow dung coat!


You may have seen bizarre practices in our country, but this one takes the concept of bizarre practices to a whole new level.

We came across a YouTube video clip where a Toyota Innova was wrapped in cow dung. Yes, you heard right. Indians have very strong feelings about cows, their urine and their excrement. In rural parts of the country, cow dung is an essential source of fuel. In addition to this, it is used as insulation applied to the walls of the house to keep the summer sun away. Strange as it may sound, it is a tradition followed in Indian villages. It also acts as a mosquito repellent. But why did someone wrap their car in cow dung?

Well, the heat-insulating properties of cow dung could really come in handy in the scorching summer sun. Temperatures in some parts of the country regularly hover around 50 degrees at the height of winters. Not all parts of the country have air conditioning or even fans. In the villages, people stay indoors because the layer of cow dung on the walls of the houses prevents the heat from entering the houses. This owner of Innova did it based on this principle. According to his theory, the layer of cow dung on a car will prevent the sun from heating up the cabin. Now, whether that works or not is a completely different scenario. One can only hope that the owner managed to dump the foul smell for all road users, as well as the occupants.

The current generation Toyota Innova Crysta is offered with 2.7 liters of gasoline and a 2.4-liter diesel engine. The first develops 166 hp and 245 Nm of maximum torque, while the second rips 150 hp of power and 360 Nm of torque. Transmission duties are performed by a 5-speed or 6-speed MT automatic transmission. The Toyota Innova Crysta is priced between Rs 17.86 lakh and Rs 25.68 lakh, ex-showroom. The updated version that will be introduced soon could feature some kind of electrification to make the powertrain hybrid. This would invariably push the cost higher.
