Toyota Motor Philippines Corporation (TMP) has sold more than one million vehicles since it started operations in the country in 1989.
Based on the most recent Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines Inc. (CAMPI) report, Toyota as of April recorded 1,000,468 units sold since 1989. The well-loved Toyota Tamaraw FX, Revo and Innova tallied combined sales of 268,065; and the highly-popular Corolla and Vios contributed 213,325 and 157,347, respectively to TMP’s one-million sales landmark that was attained in less than three decades.
As one of the major players in the local automotive manufacturing industry, Toyota has sold a total of 615,899 locally-manufactured vehicles, which were produced in its previous Bicutan assembly plant and the current Santa Rosa facility in Laguna. This is a testament to Toyota’s thrust in continuously producing “always better cars” that has gained the trust of its customers in the country. “Achieving this one-million sales milestone is a great accomplishment for our company and the local automotive industry. We initially forecasted that this breakthrough will only be realized by the 2nd semester of the year, but because of our continued strong sales, we achieved this feat three months ahead of time,” said TMP president Michinobu Sugata in a statement.
