Toyota Reports May 2016 Sales, Sees SUV Surge

  • Toyota retains retail brand leadership

  • TMS posts best-ever SUV sales for the month

TORRANCE, Calif. (June 1, 2016) – Toyota Motor Sales (TMS), U.S.A., Inc., today reported May 2016 sales of 219,339 units, a decrease of 9.6 percent from May 2015 on a volume basis. With two fewer selling days in May 2016 compared to May 2015, sales were down 2.0 percent on a daily selling rate (DSR) basis. 

 

Toyota division posted May 2016 sales of 192,657 units, down 9.5 percent on a volume basis, and 2.0 percent on a DSR basis.   

 

"Industry sales remain steady in May with the shift toward light trucks and SUVs continuing." said Bill Fay, Toyota division group vice president and general manager. "Mirroring that trend, Toyota division SUVs had a best-ever month, led by RAV4, Highlander and 4Runner.”

 

Lexus posted sales of 26,682 units, down 10.1 percent on a volume basis, and 2.6 percent on a DSR basis. 

 

"May finished at a lower than ideal supply for our luxury utility vehicles, a sign of continued demand, though likely limiting our full sales potential,” said Jeff Bracken, Lexus group vice president and general manager. “From the compact NX to the dramatically restyled RX and the off-road conquering GX & LX, our utility vehicle family continues to appeal to the preferences of U.S. consumers.”

 

May 2016 Highlights:

  • RAV4 sales rose 12 percent, with sales of 32,261 units, a best-ever May

  • 4Runner sales of 10,352 up more than 21 percent; second consecutive month over 10,000 units

  • Land Cruiser up 31.3 percent

  • RX posts sales of 8,804 units, up more than 10 percent

  • Lexus saw total sedan sales increase more than 18 percent month-over-month

  • ES posts sales of 5,373 units, a month-over-month increase of 21 percent

  • LS sales up nearly 16 percent, with sales of more than 700 units

*Note:  Unless otherwise stated, all figures reflect unadjusted raw sales volume

We'll Might Toyo even has a bunch of sucky sales. If it was not for the Truck line of products, they would have been just as ugly as everyone else.

      Toyota's polarizing C-HR crossover went on sale earlier this year and it isn't doing so well in terms of sales. Through November, Toyota has only moved 21,889 units, way less than Chevrolet Trax (72,723 units) and Honda HR-V (86,491).
      Speaking to Wards Auto, Toyota Motor Sales USA's president Bob Carter said a key reason the comes down to the C-HR not offering all-wheel drive in North America. Most subcompact crossovers sold in the U.S. have the option of AWD. But if Toyota was to AWD to the C-HR, it would highlight another problem. The C-HR carries a base price of $22,500, making it one of the more expensive models in the class.
      The C-HR isn't the only crossover that will only come front-wheel drive. Nissan's upcoming Kicks crossover will also be FWD only. However, Michael Bunce, senior vice president-product planning for Nissan North America tells Wards that only offering FWD on the Kicks shouldn't dent sales due to the low price of under $19,000. Those who want AWD will need to step up to the Rogue Sport which begins at $22,470 for the base S AWD.

      Over the course of this year, Toyota has unveiled three different crossover concepts; the FT-4X, TJ Cruiser, and the FT-AC. We figured that one of these concepts could make it into production and this was confirmed by a Toyota executive.
      "It's like the 90s again, we can have more than one vehicle in each segment if they are different enough," Toyota Motor North America General Manager Jack Hollis told Motor Authority.
      While the three concepts differ greatly in terms of design, Hollis explained this was done to "test the waters in the market and get feedback from consumers." No matter which design is chosen, there are certain details that have been confirmed. Hollis said this new model will sit alongside the C-HR and be based on the company's TGNA platform. Power will come from a four-cylinder, but don't count out a hybrid option. Unlike the C-HR, this model will have the choice of front or all-wheel drive. The new crossover will also influence the design of the next-generation 4Runner and RAV4.
      Hollis said the model will have a price tag of under $20,000 and go on sale within the next two to three years.
