Toyota Reports January Sales

02/01/2006 Torrance, CA

Toyota Motor Sales (TMS), U.S.A., Inc., today reported best-ever January sales of 160,625 units, an increase of 14 percent over last year.

"The year's off to a respectable start, with hybrids and fuel-efficient vehicles leading the way," said Jim Press, TMS president and COO. "January's bright job-market outlook and the uptick in consumer confidence bode well for the industry, as do signs the economy has bounced back from the Gulf Coast hurricanes."

The Toyota Division recorded best-ever January sales of 140,967, an increase of 14.9 percent. The Lexus Division posted January sales of 19,658 units, up 7.7 percent over last January.
