Hino sold a total of 251 units in August with sales being lead by the 300-Series.

Toyota sold just over 1.33 million parts’ pieces to local dealers and exported 278 000 pieces to foreign markets.

Commenting on the market, Leon Theron, senior vice president of sales and marketing for TSAM, says that the “ongoing challenges in the domestic new vehicle segment are worrying, although Toyota is once again the only motor manufacturer that has successfully breached the 10 000 sales threshold in the last few years. Of interest though, is that Toyota has managed an average market share of 24.9% this – which is quite encouraging in the current economic climate”.

Despite the challenging conditions TSAM believes that its intention to “deliver the best possible experience to every customer” will sustain its business and leadership position.
