During the first half of 2021, Toyota South Africa sold 56,460 new vehicles in the country.
Headlining the company’s impressive sales figures is the Hilux bakkie, at a total of 19,818 new units sold during the period.
This comes to just over 109 Hilux bakkies per day in 2021 so far.
“The Hilux made a remarkable contribution to Toyota South Africa Motors’ total sales of 9,630 [in June 2021], with an overall market share of 25% for the month,” said the company.
Another notable model for the brand was the new Urban Cruiser, which amassed a total sales figure of 3,081 new units – after being launched locally in March.
Toyota parts business
Alongside the new vehicle sales, Toyota South Africa’s parts business also excelled.
Toyota’s parts wing distributed over 1.4 million items to domestic dealerships, while a further 320,000 pieces were shipped outside of the country.
“Toyota South Africa Motors also recorded the highest vehicle exports last month, with a total of 7,497,” said the company.
According to Naamsa, vehicle exports have continued their upward momentum during the month.
“In terms of a timeframe for a full recovery to pre-Covid-19 vehicle record export levels, much will depend on the ongoing path and management of the global pandemic.”
