UMW Toyota Posts Impressive Sales For Month of March While Q1 Sales Drops

After enjoying a bull run, sales for UMW Toyota Motor Sdn Bhd (UMWT) seems to have stabilised as the company ended March 2204 with total sales of 9,688 units for Toyota and Lexus models combined. This comprises 9,471 units for Toyota and 217 units for Lexus and a total year-to-date sales as of March 2024 of 23,444.

This figure is down from the 25,219 units sold in the same period of 2023, which can be attributed to the rush to register cars before the SST exemption expired, and perhaps even the pent up demand from the post pandemic era.

UMW Toyota (UMWT) does not reveal sales by model so there is no telling which model took the lead in sales.

In the commercial sector, UMWT has raised the bar with the introduction of the all-new Toyota HiAce Panel Van 3.0L. Powered by a 3.0-litre, turbo-diesel engine, the new van offers 136PS and 300Nm for effortless cargo transport.

Complementing that is the new Toyota HiAce Super Long Wheelbase (SLWB), which boasts significant size enhancements for increased interior space, offering unparalleled comfort for passengers and cargo. Equipped with a powerful 2.7-litre turbo-diesel engine, the HiAce SLWB promises robust performance with 177 PS and 450 Nm of torque.
