Toyota group sales down 0.5% in May

The Toyota group sold 218,248 vehicles in the United States during the month of May, the Japanese manufacturer reported, 0.5% less than in the same period of 2016.

The two divisions of the group, Toyota and luxury brand Lexus, recorded losses in May.

Sales of the Toyota division fell 3.9% with delivery of 192,847 units, while Lexus sales were down 8.6%, with 25,401 sales.

Despite losses in May, Toyota noted that demand for vehicles in the United States remains robust, especially between todocaminos SUVs and vans.

Jack Hollis, Toyota’s vice president and general manager, said in a statement that “although less than last year, the automotive sector continues to enjoy a solid year in 2017, with the glow in light trucks.”

While the car sales of the two divisions of the group fell by 17.3% in May, and were reduced to 92,814 units, those of SUVs and vans rose by 7.9% to reach 125,434 vehicles.
