Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc. is well on its way to recovering from a rough patch of recall troubles and sales difficulties brought about by the earthquake and subsequent tsunami. The Japanese automaker’s raw volume sales were up a eye-popping 87.3 per cent this May as compared to May 2011. In total, TMS moved 202,973 units in the month.

The Toyota Division had a rip-roaring month as well moving 181,510 vehicles worldwide, an 88.9 per cent increase in its volume from May 2011. Bubbling over about this success the buoyant Bob Carter, Toyota Division group vice president and general manager, Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., said, “We’re grateful to our customers who have made Toyota the number one retail brand in America for the third consecutive month. Our growth has been driven by the success of our new products, led by Camry and Prius family, part of the most aggressive product launch in our history.  With the much anticipated Scion FR-S on sale today and the continued recovery of the overall automotive market, we’re confident our sales momentum will continue.” 

If Toyota is able to continue to ride this trend, the auto-juggernaut may soon once again regain the title of being the world’s number one automaker.
