Japanese firm aims to sell 6.7 million cars in the year to March 2010

Toyota has raised its global sales forecast for the year to March 2010 by three per cent due to a recovery in the new car sales market.

The Japanese firm is the world’s largest auto maker and it now plans to sell 6.7 million cars for the year to March 2010.

It has also increased its global production by eight per cent to 6.45m vehicles for 2009/10 due to the popularity of its low emission cars, such as the new third-generation Prius.

Sales in its native Japan have been boosted by subsidies offered on the purchase of low emission cars and Toyota has called on the government to extend the scheme until March 2012.

Car review

The Toyota Prius is an easy and very visible route to greenness, even if its reputation as the minicab of choice for UK drivers is now impossible to shake off

Re: Toyota increases its sales targets

In the UK, I can only see their sales declining. Other than the Prius, they have no interesting or unique cars that do anything special, none of the range is particularly exciting or class leading, and just very dull and boring. This is clearly reflected in the sales figures, I suspect the only people who buy them do so because of the good reliability track record of the brand.
