Brussels, Belgium - July 7, 2017 - Toyota Motor Europe today reported 2017 first half sales of 527,000 Toyota and Lexus vehicles, an increase of +11% from 2016. Total market share for the group increased by +0.3 ppt to 4.9%.

Hybrid sales grew by +44% year-on-year to 208,300 units. Hybrids now represent 40% of TME total sales, and an impressive 50% in Western Europe only.

Lexus contributes to the hybrid success with an average mix of 63% of total sales and 99% in Western Europe.

The successful launch of Toyota C-HR led the way for the strong start to 2017, with about 80% of our Toyota C-HR customers choosing hybrid.

This strong first half performance has also been supported by Yaris Hybrid (+7%), RAV4 Hybrid (+75%) and the new generation Hilux (+36%) and PROACE (+223%).

In Russia, the locally produced Camry and RAV4 managed to maintain their segment leadership despite the challenging market conditions.

‚Äč

The European market continued to perform well in the second quarter of the year and our performance was again stronger than the market. Our sales increased by a remarkable +11%. Our hybrid line-up of 15 Toyota and Lexus models, the largest in the automotive sector, drove this double-digit sales increase. 40% of our sales are now hybrids, showing European drivers’ affinity with our hybrid technology. I am very happy to welcome all our new hybrid drivers to the Toyota family.
Dr Johan van Zyl, President & CEO of Toyota Motor Europe,
