STRONG FIRST-HALF RESULTS POINT TO POTENTIAL FOR NEW ANNUAL RECORD

[Under embargo until 12.00pm AEST]

 

All-time high June demand for motor vehicles has created the potential for a record sales year in 2015 according to market leader Toyota.

Australians bought an unprecedented 125,850 new motor vehicles in the last month of the financial year - 7,092 (six per cent) above the previous June record achieved two years ago.

Official VFACTS figures just released show Toyota topped sales with 21,501 deliveries of cars, SUVs and commercial vehicles.

Strong final month demand across the board led to total first-half deliveries of 578,427 new vehicles of which Toyota accounted for 101,714.

"Annualised it is now possible for the 2015 sales year to be the best ever - some 20,000 vehicles ahead of the 2013 record," Tony Cramb, executive director sales and marketing Toyota Australia said.

The all-time annual record stands at 1,136,227.

At the beginning of the year Toyota, which has led sales for the past 12 consecutive years and 19 years in total, forecast a 2015 market exceeding 1.1 million.

"June demand is traditionally high as a result of end of financial year requirement, especially in the business sector," Mr Cramb said.

"This year has been exceptional.

"All indicators are for strong demand to continue at levels equalling or even exceeding previous second halves.

"For the time being Toyota stands by its forecast but it is now clear there is potential for customer demand to exceed expectation."

The 2014/15 financial year ended with a total 1,131,701 deliveries from July 2014 to June 2015, the second highest on record, of which Toyota made up 204,110.

Toyota's Corolla was Australia's top selling car for the financial year, with 43,319 deliveries ahead of Mazda 3 on 41,216.

Toyota's HiLux light commercial vehicle was the third most in-demand vehicle across all categories with 37,747 sales in the financial year.

Corolla claimed monthly leadership six times and HiLux once throughout the financial year.

"Customers are spoilt for choice," Mr Cramb said.

"In all markets there is strong competition amongst very worthy brands and the winners are our customers.

"Success depends not only on vehicle and price but also on increasingly high levels of customer service."

Toyota claimed leadership in eight VFACTS categories in June, the most of any vehicle maker, and led all three major segments - passenger vehicle, SUV and light commercial.
