In July, Toyota
sold a combined 15,819 vehicles to Canadians. Scion and Toyota trucks both had record-setting sales this July. Toyota sales are up 30% compared to last year and the Truck sales are up by 31.4%.
Of the 684 Scions sold in Canada, 323 were the new FR-S sports coupe. The worst selling Scion is the iQ city-car. “Aggressive performance meets striking style in the all-new Scion FR-S – which has ignited Scion sales,” said Larry Hutchinson, Senior Executive Director. “This year, Scion is establishing itself with new Canadian drivers.”
While the Camry almost always outsells the Corolla in the US, the trend is reversed up north. More than 3,00 Corollas were sold but only just over 1,000 Camrys.
Some of the slower selling vehicles in Canada, sold by Toyota are the Avalon which 12 people bought. They likely got great deals since the redesigned model will soon be on dealer lots. Combining the RWD Tacoma and Tundra, they got 43 buyers compared to the 1387 people who bought 4WD models. Canadian shoppers do not like RWD trucks. Seven people bough the pre-redesign Land Cruiser while 27 bought the only slightly pricier Lexus version, the LX.
Ten ISF sports sedans were sold in Canada in July along with eleven of the LS luxury sedans. One of the LS sold was the AWD, long-wheelbase hybrid.
