Just like other carmakers, Toyota sales have also taken a beating in September 2019 due to on-going slowdown. A total of 10,203 units were sold in September, which is 2,309 less than September 2018 and 496 units less than August 2019.
In effect, YoY sales and MoM sales are down -18.45% and -4.64%, respectively. However, Q3 2019 figures are a little better, as Toyota is ranked at fourth place with market share of 5.07%. This is an improvement of 0.36% in market share, as compare to Q3 2018.
Top selling Toyota car in September 2019 is Innova that has registered sales of 4,225 units. However, MoM and YoY sales are both down by -11.91% and -34.77%, respectively. Next is recently launched Glanza, which appears to be steadily gaining popularity.
In September 2019, 2,773 units were sold, which translates into an impressive MoM growth of 19.42%. Toyota recently launched a new Glanza G MT variant without mild hybrid at an affordable price of Rs 6.97 lakh.
At third spot is Etios, with sales of 1,252 units in September 2019. Etios has lost -15.75% in MoM sales and -39.16% in YoY sales. Toyota is expected to update Etios and Liva in the near future. Toyota Fortuner comes in at number four, with sales of 920 units in September 2019. While YoY sales have fallen -41.33%, there’s some encouraging signs as MoM sales have improved by 4.78%. Toyota recently launched Fortuner TRD, a sportier variant of Fortuner priced at Rs 33.85 lakh.
Next in the list are Liva and Etios Cross that have registered collective sales of 670 units in September 2019. While MoM sales are down -19.66%, YoY sales are even worse at -55.12%. At number six is Yaris with sales of 232 units in September 2019. Yaris has lost a massive -61.01% in YoY sales, but MoM sales have improved by 7.91%. An updated Yaris with new features was launched in September and prices were also reduced by 60k, which may explain the increase in MoM sales.
Toyota cars in the list that have sold less than 100 units include Corolla (84 units), Camry (34 units), Landcruiser (11 units) and Vellfire (2 units). Corolla has registered the maximum YoY loss of -68.18%, but its MoM sales have improved by 29.23%. Landcruiser has similar numbers, -35.29% drop in YoY sales and 37.50% growth in MoM sales.
