UMW Toyota sold 6,767 cars in Apr 2023, YTD up 9%

UMW Toyota Motor (UMWT) posted sales of 6,681 Toyota and 86 Lexus vehicles in April 2023, which is a 3% decrease year-on-year versus the same month last year. However, year-to-date sales is 9% higher, and the company says it remains on course to achieve its mid-year target, despite the shorter operating month of April 2023.

“We remain confident in our ability to deliver strong year-on-year growth. We have also seen promising response to our new models launched in quarter one of 2023, particularly the all-new Toyota Vios, and we expect this to contribute to our continued growth throughout the year,” said UMW Toyota Motor president Datuk Ravindran Kurusamy.

The latest Vios is Toyota’s most recent new model in Malaysia, and the UMWT chief reiterated his assurance on the safety and quality standards of the B-segment sedan.

“We would like to assure you that the all-new Toyota Vios complies with all safety regulations and there is no compromise to the quality of the vehicle. The safety of our customers and our vehicles are always our top priority,” Ravindran said, referring to Daihatsu’s recent admission of ‘wrongdoings’ in crash tests.

Meanwhile, UMWT’s commitment to GR and racing continues, as the Toyota Gazoo Racing Festival is now into Season 6. Race 2 of the Vios one-make race will take place on the first weekend of June. Over on the e-sport side of things, the Toyota Gazoo Racing GT Cup is a simulator racing challenge that is now into its sixth year. Ahead of the 2023 championship, UMWT will be introducing the GR GT Cup Campus Tour for undergraduates, a new avenue to unearth talent.

    With growing sales, Toyota customer service have become complacent. I have owned several Toyota models in the past but have never experienced such level of service. I recently visited a Toyota showroom at Jelutong, Penang to enquire about the new Vios. There wasn’t any salesperson I could speak to. Besides, no Vios was on display. According to a roster displayed, there were supposed to be 4 salesperson on duty. A lady sitting at a desk in the showroom couldn’t be bothered until I approached her. But she claimed she wasn’t past of the sales team! I have decided and if I should eventually decide to buy a Vios, I will probably get it from YS Khong.

      I’ve started noticing their complacency as far back as 10 years ago. A Toyota sales guy & his colleagues (all wearing their Toyota shirts) were having yamcha in a coffeeshop near a Toyota showroom. He was talking on the phone, trying to deflect away complaints from a customer. Hopefully that customer didn’t buy anything from that sales guy anymore.

  • Most of the models has excessive skirting lips, more power is it? Example the many fridge on wheels with long low skirting lips akin to scooping mud from the road. Looks so Jinjang.

    Real car on the road looks great but design somehow identical similar to rival. I like the vios E but the pricing..ermm, abit steep with almost the same set of perodua engine and parts.
