Los Angeles, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 01/27/2014 -- Premier Toyota, which has earned a well-deserved reputation as one of the top Toyota dealers in Ohio, has just released industry sales data that compares car sales in 2012 to 2013.
In the report, Toyota Motor Sales (TMS), U.S.A., Inc., said that December 2013 sales resulted in 190, 843 units, an increase of 2.2 percent over December 2012 on a daily selling rate (DSR) basis. On a raw-volume basis, unadjusted for 25 selling days in December 2013 versus 26 selling days in December 2012, TMS sales decreased 1.7 percent from the same month, one year ago.
Premier Toyota, one of the top car dealerships in Cleveland Ohio, also noted in the report that the Toyota division posted December 2013 sales of 156,086 units, down 0.7 percent year-over-year on a DSR basis. Volume-wise, Toyota division sales decreased 4.6 percent over December 2012.
With the same number of selling days in 2013 and 2012, TMS reported annual sales of 2,236,042 vehicles, up 7.4 percent versus last year on both a DSR and raw-volume basis.
“The auto industry was a consistent bright spot in the economic recovery throughout 2013,” said Bill Fay, Toyota division group vice president and general manager. “We expect the economy will continue to gain strength in 2014, with car sales rising to pre-recession levels.”
Other highlights from the newly-released report show the Camry was the best-selling car in America last year, and that sales of the Avalon were up more than 20 percent in December. In addition, the new Corolla records show monthly sales of more than 22,500 units, which is up about 4 percent for the year. As the report noted, all figures reflect unadjusted raw sales volume.
The TMS data also shows that TMS hybrids retained about 60 percent of the market and set all-time sales record in 2013; for example, the Prius family posted sales of 15,720 units in December. Toyota division trucks recorded their best December since 2007—which was up nearly 11 percent year-over-year, and the all-new RAV4 was up 46 percent with its best-ever December.
