UMW Toyota Motor recently announced that things are off to a good start in 2022, as the company has achieved a combined sales result of 7,528 units for Toyota and Lexus in January 2022.
This is a significant increase of 96% compared to the same period last year of 3,845 units. With Toyota reclaiming its No.1 non-national brand title after six years last year, the global automaker is off to an excellent start.
Among the passenger cars, Vios reigns as the bestselling Toyota model, accounting for 28% of total sales this month, while the Hilux is the best-selling pick-up truck with 38% of total sales.
In addition to the positive sales results, January has been an eventful month for UMW Toyota Motor.
Earlier in the month, the mobility leader partnered with Yayasan Raja Muda Selangor to extend a hand to Malaysians affected by the flood.
Through its ‘Back On Your Feet’ Programme, the company contributed RM10,000 to Sekolah Kebangsaan Sungai Lui for the school’s repairs of its partially damaged premise from the flood.
Besides that, UMW Toyota Motor also donated essential home appliances to the affected community in Sungai Lui such as rice cookers, kettles and gas stoves.
On a separate note, the UMW Toyota Motor ‘Stay Ahead’ campaign is now offering savings up to RM4,500. The promotion features the Toyota Vios with monthly instalments from RM540 with RM2,216 sales tax savings, as well as the Yaris with monthly instalments from RM493 on top of RM2,192 sales tax savings.
In line with Toyota’s global agenda to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, the automaker has initiated Malaysia’s transition to sustainable mobility with the launch of the Corolla Cross Hybrid on 14 January 2022.
This marks an incredible milestone for UMW Toyota Motor as its first locally assembled hybrid vehicle with Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform.
Speaking of locally assembled hybrids, the Toyota Corolla Cross Hybrid is available at a starting price of RM136,550 (without insurance), with a 5-year/unlimited mileage factory warranty on top of a separate 8-year/unlimited mileage warranty covering the hybrid battery pack, inverter and Power Management Control Unit.
Customers can also extend their warranty by two years for a total coverage of 10 years, the first such warranty in the local industry.
