Toyota Reports September and Third Quarter 2011 Sales

Oct 03, 2011, 13:30 ET from Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc.

TORRANCE, Calif., Oct. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Toyota Motor Sales (TMS), U.S.A., Inc., today reported September sales of 121,451 units. With 25 selling days in September 2010 and 2011, sales were down 17.5 percent over the year-ago month on both a daily selling rate (DSR) and unadjusted raw volume basis.

Toyota Division recorded September sales of 106,456 vehicles, a decrease of 18.2 percent from the year-ago month.  Lexus Division reported September sales of 14,995 units, a decrease of 11.5 percent from last year.

Through the third quarter, TMS reported sales of 1,194,524 vehicles, a decrease of 9.3 percent compared to the same period in 2010 on a DSR and unadjusted raw volume basis.

"In September, production in both North America and Japan returned to normal levels for the first time since the March 11 earthquake and tsunami.  Our plants are now working overtime and dealer deliveries will continue to increase through the remainder of 2011.  With the 2012 Camry launch off to a great start, the timing couldn't be better," said Bob Carter, Toyota Division group vice president and general manager, Toyota Motor Sales, USA, Inc.  "It’s a tribute to the efficiency of our distribution system and our dealers that we were able to sell more than 121,000 vehicles in September despite 40 percent less availability than last year.  That said, the worst is behind us and we expect to exceed year-ago sales levels beginning in October with continued growth throughout the fourth quarter."
