“The auto industry led the economic recovery through the first half of 2013, kicking off a strong summer selling season, which we expect will carry into the second half of the year," said Bill Fay, Toyota Division group vice president and general manager. "Sales in June were solid, and demand didn’t skip a beat. Customers are already showing an interest in the all-new Corolla, our hybrid lineup had its best-ever June and Camry topped 35,000 units.”

“Thanks to the 2014 Lexus IS that went on sale last Friday, we had our best non-holiday weekend in six years,” said Steve Hearne, Lexus sales vice president. “With its bold design and sporty performance, the new F SPORT model is proving to be a homerun at our dealerships. With the new IS, as well as the strong-selling ES and LS models, Lexus has three of the hottest cars in the luxury segment.”
