Sales of Toyota motor vehicles totaled 4,291 units in July, equal to 83 per cent of the figure recorded in July last year, but Toyota Motor Vietnam (TMV) retained its leading position among automakers in the country (excluding trucks and buses), according to the company’s latest report. 

Total sales in July (excluding trucks and buses) were down, equaling 79 per cent of the July 2016 figure. 

TMV’s sales of passenger cars reached 2,333 units and commercial vehicles 1,958 units.

The Vios saw sales of 1,548 units and kept its leading position, while the Camry and Corolla recorded sales of 167 and 414 units, respectively. The Corolla Altis made an impressive step forward and found a place in the Top 10 during the month.

Leading the way in Toyota’s commercial vehicle segment was the Innova, with 683 units sold, equal to 97 per cent of the figure in July 2016. It saw its share in the multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) segment increase, however, and was the seventh best-selling model during the month. In the year since the new Innova was introduced in July 2016, sales have stood at 12,878 units.

Among completely-built-up (CBU) units imported by TMV, the Fortuner saw sales of 1,089 units in July, up 21 per cent against July 2016 and taking third position in the Top 10 best-selling models during the month.

Sales of the Yaris were 204 units, the Hilux 77 units, the Hiace 47 units, the Land Prado 56 units, and the Land Cruiser six units.

Continuing to bring premium models and services, with the famous Japanese Omotenashi spirit, sales of the Lexus reached 84 in July.
