Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) continues to break the 8,000 unit sales mark for the second consecutive month.

According to the most recent CAMPI report, TMP posted a share of 45-percent with total sales of 8,102 units in April.

The sales of Toyota last April was again possible through the continous demand of its best-selling vehicle, the Vios with sales of 1,982 units.

The company’s performance was further strengthened as the Fortuner  and the locally-manufactured Innova registered 1,473 units and 1,200 units respectively while Wigo had 634.

TMP says other Toyota models such as the Corolla Altis, the Hilux and the HiAce were also number one in their own categories.

“Reaching another 8,000 sales level in a single month is indeed a breakthrough for Toyota Motor Philippines. On behalf of TMP, we would like to express our deepest appreciation to our customers for their continued trust in all our products. Moreover, looking at how things are going, we expect this favorable trend to continue because of the positive economic outlook and demand for our new models such as the Yaris, Wigo, Innova and the Corolla Altis,” TMP President Mr. Michinobu Sugata said in a statement.

Furthermore, TMP says the company continues to stretch its lead in sales on a year to date basis. 

In the passenger car segment, the company registered 11, 625 units and in the commercial vehicle segment recorded 19,305 units. 

All in all, the manufacturer increased by 32-percent versus the same period of last year outperforming the industry’s growth.  TMP’s total sales on a year-to-date basis is at 30, 930 units.
