Breaking sales records again

Toyota Motor Philippines Corporation has just announced a new milestone in sales: the company has just sold 9,132 units in May 2014, the highest ever number for any company in Philippine automotive history and the first time the 9,000 unit barrier has been breached by a single automotive brand.

Compared to May 2013, TMP sales grew by 47%, representing continuous high demand for all its models particularly the Vios (2,080 units), the Fortuner (1,721 units) and the Wigo (926 units). Year to date Toyota Motor Philippines has already registered at growth of 35.4 % with 40,062 units sold so far.

“Having to reach more than 9,000 units in a single month is indeed a breakthrough performance by the company,” said Mr. Michinobu Sugata, TMP President in a statement. “Our continued thrust of satisfying our customers with the best products and services has indeed bore its fruit as revealed by the numbers. With such results the past months, it likewise inspires us as a Team to continuously find ways in serving our customers even better."

In March and April 2014, Toyota also was able to break the 8,000 unit sales mark.

“Looking at how things are going, we at TMP, expect that this strong demand is expected to continue because of the positive economic outlook and the good reaction from the market with regards to our newly launched models such as the Corolla Altis, Yaris, Innova and the Wigo. Moreover, our best-selling Toyota model, the Vios, continues to be a favourite because of its overall great value and reliable performance,” concluded Sugata.
