Sets Record-breaking Sales for Vios

Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) finishes the first half of the year strongly after selling 5, 096 units in June, garnering 33.6% market share. This is the highest monthly sales record TMP has achieved so far for 2010. This is attributed to the more aggressive performance of both PC and CV markets compared to the previous month.

In the PC Category, Toyota captured 35.7% share with 1,953 units sold. This is attributed to the strong performance of the Altis, Camry and Vios models, each bagging the number one position in their respective segments. The Altis registered 344 sales, cornering 27.5% share of the Compact PC segment. On the other hand, the Camry reigned supreme in the Midsize PC segment with 55% share.

Leading the robust PC line-up is the refreshed Vios and its 1.3 automatic transmission variant, which constitutes almost 77% of Total PC sales for Toyota. For the month of June, the New Vios achieved record-breaking sales of 1,502 units with 47.7% share of the Sub-Compact PC segment. Compared to same period of last year, the New Vios recorded an astounding 50% growth. To date, the Vios remains as the country's bestselling car in the market.
