Toyota Continues To See Growth With Sales-Per-Day Increase In September 2013 Corolla sales up as all-new model reaches showrooms; Camry is once again No. 1

TORRANCE, Calif., Oct. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Toyota Motor Sales (TMS), U.S.A., Inc., today reported September 2013 sales results of 164,457 units, an increase of 4 percent over September 2012 on a daily selling rate (DSR) basis.  On a raw-volume basis, unadjusted for 23 selling days in September 2013 versus 25 selling days in September 2012, TMS sales decreased 4.3 percent from year-ago month.

Toyota Division posted September 2013 sales of 144,935 units, up 4 percent year-over-year on a DSR basis.  Volume-wise, Toyota division sales decreased 4.3 percent over September 2012. 

"September was a solid month for the auto industry despite two fewer selling days," said Bill Fay, Toyota Division group vice president and general manager. "Industry fundamentals are strong as interest rates stay low and consumers remain confident."

Lexus reported September sales of 19,522 units, a 4.1 percent increase on a DSR basis and a 4.2 percent decrease on a raw volume basis, both year-over-year.

"September was another good IS month, along with continued healthy year to date results for RX, ES and LS," said Jeff Bracken, Lexus group vice president and general manager.  "Additionally, we anticipate a strong final quarter pace to close out the 2013 calendar year."
