Toyota's 2009 auto sales in Asia to top those in Japan for 1st time

Wednesday 30th December, 04:06 AM JST


Auto sales by Toyota Motor Corp in Asia other than Japan will outnumber those in the domestic market in 2009 for the first time due mainly to a steep sales increase in China, industry sources say. Toyota sold some 1,354,000 units in Asia in the first 11 months of this year, up 4.5% over a year earlier, in comparison with 1,256,000 vehicles in Japan.

The sales growth in Asia was led by a 20.7% increase to 622,000 units in China. Sales in China are likely to reach around 700,000 units for the entire year, they said.

The Asian market therefore is expected to become the second-largest market for Toyota in 2009 after North America where the automaker sold 1,770,000 vehicles in the January-November period, the sources said.

In November alone, sales showed a recovery also in India, Thailand and Vietnam, the sources added.
