Brussels, Belgium – 14 October, 2022 – Toyota Motor Europe (TME) (1) today reported sales of 813,547 Toyota and Lexus vehicles, a decrease of -6% year-on-year but still outperforming the European automotive market which fell by -16% over the same period. TME’s market share increased to a record 7.5%, marking an increase of +0.8% points year-on-year and maintaining a momentum which has seen its share grow by +2% points since 2019. Sales of the company’s multi-technology electrified line-up expanded to 540,777 vehicles, an increase of +5% year-on-year. The Toyota brand consolidated its position as the 2nd best-selling passenger car brand in Europe(1) with a market share of 7.2%, up +0.9% points compared to the same period in 2021.
These results reflect the product power of the Toyota and Lexus portfolio . We continue to perform well ahead of the market which has remained weak due to a combination of factors impacting the automotive industry. We’re seeing strong demand for our electrified line-up, especially from key contributors such as new Yaris Cross, Yaris and Corolla. We expect demand to continue to exceed supply thanks also to our new Toyota and Lexus model launches.
