Toyota Reports September Sales image

Toyota Motor Sales (TMS), U.S.A., Inc., today reported September sales of 126,015 vehicles, a decrease of 16.1 percent from last September, on a daily selling rate basis. TMS posted sales of 525,975 units in the third quarter, a 28 percent increase over the second quarter.

“Improving economic conditions and the CARS program led to a significant increase for the industry in the third quarter over the first-half year,” said Don Esmond, senior vice president of automotive operations for TMS. “Moving into the fourth quarter, we expect continued momentum will close the year on a bright note.”

The Toyota Division posted September sales of 108,076 units, down 19.1 percent from last September. The Lexus Division reported September sales of 17,939 units, an increase of 7.3 percent from the year-ago month.

There were 25 selling days this month, compared to 24 selling days last September.
