As for UMW Toyota’s sales for May 2022, the total number of Toyota and Lexus sold were 36,972 units.
The overall Toyota and Lexus sales for April were at 6,946 units as compared to 7,579 units in May of the same year.
UMW Toyota managed to closely maintain its numbers and registered only a slight difference when comparing the current month with the corresponding month of the previous year.
The total Toyota and Lexus sales for the year as at to date May 2022 is 36,972 units, compared with 34,026 units for year-to-date sales of May 2021.
This shows a gain of 9% when compared to the previous year, despite the forecast that vehicle sales in Malaysia will be slow for the rest of the year.
Based on the global shortage of semiconductors, automobile producers are finding it difficult to increase their production to meet demand.
In addition, the resumption of the sales and services tax (SST) after June 2022 will also put a damper on sales.
However, some buyers may want to take advantage of the pricing prior to re-implementation of the SST and this will assist to ramp up sales.
UMW Toyota Motor president Ravindran K said the company appreciated and was emboldened by the support it had received from customers.
“It has always been our policy to put our customers first and we are always ready to extend our assistance to the many Toyota fans as we journey out of these uncertain times.
“We are looking forward to continued confidence in our products and servicing capabilities, backed by our advanced automotive technology and comforted by the security features of all our products. Here’s to a more positive outlook forging ahead,” he said.
Continuing with the monthly promotions, UMW Toyota is offering benefits worth RM4,000 to fans of the Yaris and Vios.
June will also see Toyota lovers gearing up for mid-year savings as well as cash rebates and sales tax savings.
UMW Toyota Motor expects a further increase as it gears up for upcoming product launches.
