Share:
TORRANCE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Toyota Motor Sales (TMS), U.S.A., Inc., today reported September 2015 sales of 194,370 units, an increase of 16.2 percent from September 2014 on a volume basis. With one more selling day in September 2015 than in September 2014, sales were up 11.5 percent on a daily selling rate (DSR) basis.

Toyota Division posted September 2015 sales of 169,076 units, up 16.3 percent on a volume and 11.6 percent on a DSR basis.

"Auto industry sales continue to accelerate at a strong pace," said Bill Fay, Toyota Division group vice president and general manager. "Toyota Division sales were up over 16 percent in September, led by best-ever sales of RAV4 and Highlander."

Lexus reported September 2015 sales of 25,294 units, up 15.8 percent from September 2014 on a volume basis and 11.1 percent on a DSR basis.

"Lexus' robust sales performance continues to be driven by our luxury utility vehicles. The outgoing RX maintained its segment dominance while the GX enjoyed another solid month," said Jeff Bracken group vice president and general manager of the Lexus division. "With this momentum and the arrival of new models like the 2016 RX, RC200t, IS200t and GS200t, Lexus is well positioned to finish the fourth quarter strong."
