For the first half of the year, Toyota, Scion and Lexus reported sales of 1,165,607 units. With 152 selling days in the first half of 2014 versus 153 selling days during the same period in 2013, sales are up 5.8 percent on a DSR basis. Unadjusted, sales were up 5.1 percent year-over-year.

“Sales in the first half of 2014 indicate a steadily recovering industry, and we expect this pace to increase as we move into the second part of the year,” said Bill Fay, Toyota division group vice president and general manager. "In June, Camry and Corolla posted double-digit gains as passenger cars showed renewed strength industry-wide.”
Lexus reported June sales of 23,518 units, a 19.3 percent increase on a DSR basis and a 10.1 percent increase on a raw-volume basis, both year-over-year.

“While the industry has been posting healthy gains, Lexus has been able to more than double the average growth rate with a combination of fresh new products, improving availability and industry-leading customer satisfaction practices,” said Jeff Bracken, Lexus group vice president and general manager. “The new Lexus IS and GX models were two of the industry's strongest performing products during the first six months of 2014.”
