TORRANCE, Calif., Nov. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Toyota Motor Sales (TMS), U.S.A., Inc., today reported October 2013 sales results of 168,976 units, an increase of 4.8 percent over October 2012 on a daily selling rate (DSR) basis.  On a raw-volume basis, unadjusted for 27 selling days in October 2013 versus 26 selling days in October 2012, TMS sales increased 8.8 percent from the year-ago month.

Toyota Division posted October 2013 sales of 146,257 units, up 4 percent year-over-year on a DSR basis.  Volume-wise, Toyota division sales increased 8 percent over October 2012. 

"Consumers showed resiliency in October with steady auto sales despite headwinds caused by the government shutdown," said Bill Fay, Toyota division group vice president and general manager.  "The growth in the auto industry continues to play a leading role in the economic recovery, and Toyota is on track for a strong close to the year."

Lexus reported October sales of 22,719 units, a 10.2 percent increase on a DSR basis and a 14.5 percent increase on a raw volume basis, both year-over-year.

"Industry growth is being driven by new products, and we have two of the hottest new models on the market today - the new IS and GX SUV," said Jeff Bracken, Lexus group vice president and general manager.  "And as we move into November and December, traditionally two excellent months for Lexus, we're poised to close out the year with strong sales."
