For the first quarter, TMS reported sales of 487,284 vehicles, an increase of 9.4 per cent over the same period in 2011 on a DSR basis. With 77 selling days in the first quarter of 2012 compared to 75 selling days in the first quarter of 2011, sales were up 12.3 per cent on an unadjusted raw volume basis.

The Toyota Division posted March total sales of 183,142 units, an increase of 13.5 per cent on a DSR basis over March 2011. Volume-wise, Toyota Division sales were up 17.7 per cent year-over-year.

“Toyota dealers had their best-selling month outside of Cash for Clunkers since the pre-recession days of August 2008. Camry and Prius also continue to shine as both set records, including Camry’s best March ever and an all-time high for Prius sales," said Jeff Bracken, Vice-President of Toyota Division sales. "With strong first quarter results and key economic indicators remaining upbeat, we see this momentum carrying into the months ahead."
