Toyota Kirloskar Motor registered a total of 19,693 units in July, also showing a 50% improvement compared to 2021.

Mr Atul Sood, Associate Vice president of Sales and Marketing, TKM was overjoyed to share his enthusiasm over the record highest sales ever since the company started selling in India. July saw a sale of total 19,693 units, as compared to 13,105 units same time last year. Sales also improved by a 19% from June itself, where a total of 16,500 wholesales were done. Positive notes were shared over the “electrification drive” in India with a highly prospective future.

In Mr Atul Sood’s words, “The month of July has been phenomenal for the company. Both in terms of sales as well as our endeavor towards “mass electrification” in India, as we unveiled the first self-charging strong hybrid electric vehicle in the high volume B SUV segment- the Urban Cruiser Hyryder. The response to the model has been exceptional, especially the customer’s choice for strong hybrids, further reiterating Toyota’s global prowess when it comes to the manufacturing and sales of electrified vehicles worldwide. We are humbled by such an encouraging response and would like to thank our customers for placing their trust in the brand.

Last month also witnessed TKM’s highest ever wholesales in a single month, ever since we started operations in India. This significant milestone also reinforces the popularity our segment leading models like the Innova Crysta, Fortuner & the Legender enjoy. The cool new Glanza as well as the Urban Cruiser continue to gather momentum as well as very encouraging booking orders. The Camry Hybrid and the Vellfire too, continue to garner healthy customer orders.

Toyota and Tata are one of the few companies to ramp up production capacity and deliver to their customers. This is a great feat in the face of the semi-conductor chip shortage crisis which is gradually fading away. However, the shadow continues to haunt Indian auto manufacturers, who currently have long waiting periods as much as over a year! As Tata and Toyota topped the charts in terms of growth, they were followed by Volkswagen AG, Kia Motors and Skoda.
