I'm amazed how well the Taco still does since the entry of the GM twins. It never even skipped a beat.

The Tacoma has history behind it

Many many people have had indestructible experiences with its predecessor, the Hilux.

And if they hadnt had any experiences with the Hilux, the mythical stories they heard others talk about  either from word of mouth or on TV raised  the Hilux to legendary status.

The Tacoma...although not as near as legendary as the Hilux, the Tacoma has served the people well over the years right after the Hilux was changed completely and re-named for the US market.

I am not surprised the Tacoma does well in the market place. There has been some major reliability missteps by Toyota with some of their nameplates (which hasnt seem to affect their sales...) and some bland choices they made to their image...but its safe to say that their small truck offerings is as awesome as it ever was.

No surprise about the Tacoma, the Tacoma owners I know would never buy a GM truck.  Toyota gets lots of repeat buyers.

And yet I really like the smaller GM trucks. The diesel option would swing me to GM if I were buying a truck that size I think.

I can’t believe they still make the Sequoia and Land Cruiser, I feel like the last major update to those was in 2005.  

Time to close up shop on the Lexus GS and LS, those 2 are in the tank and the LS is a new model and it is down 50%!  I guess that predator grille is scaring people away.

I am pretty sure the new LS isn't out yet.....

Wow, the new Camry must really be hitting some vibes.  One of my coworkers got a pearl white XLE and loves it and it actually looks good in the flesh!

So far the Camry is winning in sales vs the new Accord.  It gets good reviews but the Accord gets better ones.
TNGA  based RAV4, Corolla and Prius-V should be here in the next 18 months.

I wonder if maybe Honda is still in the process of ramping up Accord production for the new model?  The drop was huge for December.  If I was looking in the midsize market right now it would be a tossup between the Camry and Accord, preferably a Camry XSE V6 or Accord Touring 2.0T.  Each with it's pros and cons for me.  This is something I would have never thought just a few years ago.  I am curious about the TNGA Corolla.  Give it a decent powertrain and some nice design and it could really be something nice in the category.

In it's defense (if you can call it that), it was still being driven (note the trailer hitch scrape on the pavement).
But of course the buyers came back, tomoco paid them 150% of (undamaged) market value for their vehicle!

The new LS isn't out yet and the old one is out of production.

They've kept the G Wagen around for a lot longer than that and they're actually very similar vehicles in their overall goal and what they do.

Indeed.... the Land Cruiser is the Japanese equivalent of the G Wagon.

      EV Battery War Heats UP, Asia Versus America!
      Seems America, Tesla and the department of energy have created the next war. This is the Battery war, Lithium Ion versus Solid State batteries and Japan is behind. As such according to the story in the Nikkei, the Japanese government is funding research by leading Japanese manufacturers to develop what they believe will power the EVs of the future.
      This group brings together the Japanese Consortium for Lithium Ion Battery Technology and Evaluation Center (Libtec) with Toyota Motor, Nissan Motor, Honda Motor, Panasonic and battery maker GS Yuasa to develop rapid charging solid-state batteries that are easier to manufacture, safer, denser energy and costs less.
      The story goes on to say that Toyota's Solid State battery technology is considered to be the most advanced in the world, but is not commercialized yet. This new consortium is meant to make this happen by being funded by the Japanese government. This should help Japan beat China, Korea and the US in having the fastest charging, safest and densest battery packs in the world. Current market numbers are that global battery market shows Japan had 70% in 2013 but shrunk to 41% today, China and Korea combine for 26% today from 3% in 2013
      The consortium is quoted as bringing the smaller but denser 400km Toyota solid state battery pack to market in the next 18 months in current EVs and have the size grow of the solid state batteries grow very little while having 550km batteries by 2025 and 800km batteries by 2030. For those that are a bit rusty on their metric, this equates to 249, 342, and 497 miles of range in a small dense battery pack.
      Japan industry ministry is eager for the country to reclaim its global dominance by setting the standard for solid-state batteries.

      VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICA REPORTS APRIL 2018 SALES RESULTS
      Sales totaled 28,794 units, an increase of 4.5 percent compared to April 2017. Year-to-date sales totaled 112,746 units, an increase of 8.6 percent over 2017 and highest volume YTD since 2014. Sales of the all-new 2018 Tiguan totaled 7,637 units. Sales of the Chattanooga-built Atlas totaled 5,404 units. Herndon, VA — (May 1, 2018) Volkswagen of America, Inc. (VWoA) today reported sales of 28,794 units delivered in April 2018, an increase of 4.5 percent over April 2017. With 112,746 units delivered year-to-date in 2018, the company is reporting an 8.6 percent increase in year-over-year sales.
      “We are encouraged with the brand’s continued growth in the market, driven by the success of our two new SUVs,” said Derrick Hatami, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Volkswagen of America. “We are also excited to have the all-new 2019 Jetta going on sale later this month, adding to the positive momentum.”
      April 2018 proved to be another growth month for Volkswagen, driven by sales of the Atlas and 2018 Tiguan with 5,404 and 7,637 units delivered respectively. Overall sales reflected the impact of Volkswagen’s move to offer a more family-friendly lineup, with SUVs accounting for nearly 50 percent of total volume for the Volkswagen brand in year-over-year sales.
      The all-new 2019 Jetta is expected to arrive at U.S. Volkswagen dealers later this month. The Jetta is one of the world’s most successful sedans, with more than 17 million models sold worldwide, including more than 3.2 million of those vehicles in the U.S. The 2019 Jetta offers a bolder design, more interior space and new technology.  
      For the 2018 model year, most new Volkswagen vehicles in the U.S. will come with the People First Warranty, a six-year or 72,000-mile (whichever occurs first) bumper-to-bumper New Vehicle Limited Warranty, which can be transferred to subsequent owners throughout its duration.
