11 May, 2015

The company exported 1334 units this month, registering a 74% year-on-year growth in export sales.

Since the beginning of this year, Toyota has clocked a double digit growth month on month. In January it recorded 16% growth in sales, increasing it to 17% in February and a 62% and 63% in March and April. Overall Toyota Kirloskar Motor registered a 36% growth in the domestic market from January to April in 2015 when compared to the same period last year.

Mr. N Raja, Director and Senior Vice - President, Sales and Marketing said, "The growth in sales can be attributed to the growing popularity of our Etios series, especially after the introduction of the Etios Cross last year. The Etios series along with the new Corolla Altis has helped us achieve a consistent growth month on month.

Safety has always been of utmost importance to us and this has been further reiterated by our efforts to standardize airbags in all our models which has given a positive boost to our sales. The additional safety and comfort features across our new models have been well received across markets which itself is a proof that customers have started to appreciate the safety features.

Along with this, we are very excited about the launch of the New Camry Hybrid which will be available in the market starting today. This will further reiterate our commitment towards preserving the environment by promoting hybrid technology to combat pollution".
