Toyota Canada Projected All Time Monthly Sales Record in April

It seems that Canadian auto market has gone through a good time in the month of April. In my earlier article, I wrote about Subaru Canada having seen best ever April sales. Now, it is Toyota Canada who also set a new monthly record in terms of sales. Toyota Canada sold 25,441 Toyota and Lexus cars and trucks in April.

Newswire reported:

Toyota sold 17,533 passenger cars in April, up 20.4 per cent from last

year - a besat-ever month.

Toyota truck sales of 6,350 in April were up 18.1 per cent year over

year - a new April record.

US auto market is now going through a bad time being affected by the country’s economic recession. Reports have it that the North American sales of the global auto makers are not going well. SO, it is a surprising that Toyota and Subaru are getting huge response in Canada. So, it is certain that General Motors is going to face a strong challenge from Toyota in holding on its top place in the global market.
