Commenting on the monthly sales, N. Raja, Deputy Managing Director, Toyota Kirloskar Motor said, “We are happy to close the year end with a series of positive milestones despite the dampening effect on consumer sentiment owing to hike in fuel prices, higher interest rates, increase in insurance premium. The buying sentiment had seen a slowdown in the last few months owing to adverse effects of macroeconomic factors, yet the industry hit back with a steady growth in sales. Toyota Kirloskar Motor domestic sales in the period Jan –Dec 2018 has grown by around 9% compared to same period in 2017. We have tried and maintained lean inventory at our dealerships.
Our versatile sedan-Toyota Yaris launched this year has been an important contributor to the positive annual sales growth. Additionally, other products like Etios Liva have also sustained the positive sales momentum.”
