Toyota sets up the new US goal: 2.25 million
|   Thursday, August 22, 2013
Due to the recent multiple launches and some programmed for the end of 2013, after already it had already surpassed the figures forecasted for this year, Toyota has upturned the target for the upcoming year. So, all the dealers should be prepared as Bob Carter, senior vice president of automotive operations, has presented the company's expectations: the record should surpass 2.25 million units. This step might be considered logical as it comes naturally after the first forecasts at the beginning of 2013 which finally proved minimal.
After the first set of plan figures has been established, in April, the company announced a rise to 2.2 million plus.

The sales figures in the United States show that Toyota has reached 1.3 sold vehicles until July this year, this actually means a raise if we look at the same situation last year when the figures were 8% lower. In July 2013, another increase has been depicted due to the considerable sales of Toyota RAV4 and Avalon. The study showed a 17% raise due to the huge customers' interest in the two Toyota models, it definitely looks like a trend has been settled.

On the other part of the world, in Japan, the sales seem to have decreased with 12.7%. However, there might be a positive trend here as well and the company might expect a raise as the current value of the yen is weak and this means growth on the export market. At the beginning of August, Toyota has accounted a profit of 663.4 billion yen which has certainly exceeded the analysts' estimation of 629 billion yen. Still, the company has successfully managed to mark a trend among all of the other Japanese care producers having confidence precisely because of the fact that the yen is weak.

Bob Carter has also stated that the market trend has definitely been improved now and that this entire process has already started half a year ago. The Toyota customers will surely start responding to such a confident statement. But this is not all, the news that the totally redesigned Tundra and Corolla will be launched at the end of this year is keeping the target public focused an eager to find out all about the new features, test drive the novelties and even start contracting.

Toyota's dynamic selling behavior and eagerness to launch several redesigned models is perceived as daring by most of the US car dealers. A real fact is the desire to sell even more than 400,000 Camrys by the end of 2013. Yet, it seems that the new 2014 Camry is a lot like the current one and that it keeps almost the same features,also, the dealers assume that only the 2015 model will feature new and improved characteristics and a totally fresh design. Even though 404,886 Camrys have been sold in 2012, Toyota has a greater plan and the company seems to be ready to compete with Nissan, Ford and Honda.
