As 2021 comes to a close, Toyota Malaysia manages to extend it’s leadership in several categories including the overall non-national, B-segment, pick-up and hatchback segments. The Vios continues to reign as Toyota’s best selling model which accounts for 31% of sales, while the Hilux remains uncontested as the best selling pickup truck in Malaysia since 2005.
For the whole of 2021, UMW Toyota Motor achieved a total sales volume of 72,394. This is an amazing feat as it shattered its 2020 total sales volume record of 59,320 by 22%. The total sales volume for December 2021 also shows a tremendous growth of 0.5% with 9,289 units sold as compared to the 9,246 sold from the same period last year. Month-on-month, UMW Toyota Motor surpassed the 8,487 sales volume for November by 9%.
With the closing of 2021, UMW Toyota Motor is revving up for an exciting 2022 with impressive plans in the pipeline including innovating the future of mobility focusing on sustainability.
The demand for sustainable vehicles is on the rise with the global transition towards clean and sustainable practices. Locally, the 12th Malaysia Plan (12MP) focuses on propelling our country into a carbon-neutral nation by 2050 and achieving sustainable growth.
Toyota is on track with this green agenda, leading the forefront of Hybrid Electric technology with more than 18 million vehicles sold to-date and offering 45 different Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV) in the market. This also includes the highly-anticipated UMW Toyota Motor’s first locally assembled hybrid vehicle, Toyota Corolla Cross Hybrid which is scheduled to launch very soon.
