USA SALES OCTOBER - Toyota/Lexus follows others with a decrease in sales, but again, certain models produce record sales.
Toyota Motor Sales (TMS), U.S.A., Inc., today reported October 2016 sales of 186,295 units, a decrease of 8.7 percent from October 2015 on a volume basis. With two fewer selling days in October 2016 compared to October 2015, sales were down 1.7 percent on a daily selling rate (DSR) basis.
Toyota Division posted October sales of 161,492 units, down 9.1 percent on a volume basis and 2.1 on a DSR basis.
“Light trucks remained the hottest segment for the industry in October,” said Bill Fay, group vice president and general manager of the Toyota Division. “With best-ever October Highlander sales, combined with solid RAV4, Corolla, and Camry results, we expect to keep Toyota the number one retail brand.”
Lexus posted October sales of 24,803 units, down 6.2 percent on a volume basis and up 1 percent on a DSR basis.
“Lexus luxury utility vehicles lead sales volume for the brand, with both the NX and the LUV lineup seeing their best-ever Octobers,” said Jeff Bracken, Lexus Division group vice president and general manager. “As we get ready to kick off our annual December to Remember sales campaign in the coming weeks with robust inventory, we expect to close out the year strong, retaining retail luxury leadership for 2016.”
