Toyota South Africa Motors has marked the end of the second quarter with a total of 56,460 vehicles sold in South Africa since January.
Leading the company’s retail roll of honour is the South Africa’s favourite ‘bakkie’, the Hilux, with 19,818 units sold, year to date. For the month of June, Hilux amassed a total of 3,320 sales. The Hilux made a remarkable contribution to TSAM’s total sales of 9,630, with an overall market share of 25% for the month of June. Other notable performances year to date include the Hiace, which sold 1,269 last month, Starlet 1,165, Fortuner 819, Urban Cruiser 591 and Quest signing the month off with 490 units. Although the Urban Cruiser has already garnered a total of more than 3,000 units this year, it should be noted that it was only launched locally in March.
The Land Cruiser nameplate continues its strong showing on the leader board, with the 70-Series pick-up posting 303 units last month, while Prado recorded a retail total of 100 units. The company’s luxury arm Lexus had a few models that registered double-digit figures, including ES (23), NX (15) while RX and LX recorded 11 units apiece.
On the truck front, Hino sold a total of 225 units in June. The 300-Series recorded 149 sales (23% of the Medium Commercial Vehicle segment) while the 500-Series ended the month on 71 units (14.9% of the Heavy Commercial Vehicle segment).
