UMW Toyota Motor Sold 48% More Cars In 1H 2022 Vs 1H 2021
Toyota sales in Malaysia soar to 52,548 units in the first six months of 2022.
2021 was a great sales year for UMW Toyota Motor and 2022 looks to be even better for the company. Sales of Toyota models in the first half of the year has soared to 52,548 units. This is a healthy number, especially when compared to the 1H 2021 number of 35,561 units. Toyota’s sales in the month of July 2022 alone stood at 6624 units, driven by strong demand for their renewed and refreshed model lineup.
Toyota also took the opportunity to highlight that their Hilux pickup truck is still the best selling pick up truck in the country and has been since 2005. This is in spite of encroaching competition from other Japanese makes as well as a new Ford Ranger on the horizon.
Here’s the press release with more.
UMW Toyota Motor Sdn Bhd (UMWT) pushes forward, registering sales of Toyota for the month of July 2022 at 6,624units, while Lexus recorded total sales of 13 units. Overall sales for the month of July 2022 stood at 6,637 units while total year-to-date sales for July 2022 stands at 52,548 units, compared to 35,561 units (Toyota + Lexus) for year-to-date sales registered in July 2021, a 48% increase from the previous year.
Recording total sales of 1,788 units in July 2022, the Toyota Hilux conquers the elements to retain the title of best-selling pick-up truck in Malaysia since 2005.
Ravindran K, President of UMW Toyota Motor said, “UMW Toyota Motor is committed to ensuring prompt vehicle delivery. We are working around the clock to intensify production to ensure faster delivery to new car owners who have been patiently waiting. We thank all our customers for their patience and understanding.”
Riding on the confidence of on-time vehicle delivery, the month of August sees UMWT offering Yaris and Vios enthusiasts benefits worth RM4,000 on top of cash rebates. The automaker expects sales to steadily increase as Malaysians take advantage of deals and savings to upgrade to ultra-modern vehicles boasting great performance, high-tech security features and unparalleled comfort.
Aligning with the Toyota Global commitment to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 and in support of the Toyota Environmental Challenge 2050, UMWT recently held two events – a tree planting programme at the Kuala Selangor Nature Park and a Hike and Clean event at Bukit Broga, Semenyih. The tree planting programme saw 80 participants plant 1,500 mangrove saplings which grow to act as huge carbon sinks sequestering two to four times more carbon than mature rainforests. Meanwhile, the Hike and Clean activity which is part of the Toyota Environmental Challenge 2050 aims to establish a future society that lives in harmony with nature, exemplifying how UMWT walks the talk when it comes to environmental preservation.
