Toyota Division posted September 2015 sales of 169,105 units, up 16.3 percent on a volume and 11.6 percent on a DSR basis.
"Auto industry sales continue to accelerate at a strong pace,” said Bill Fay, Toyota Division group vice president and general manager. “Toyota Division sales were up over 16 percent in September, led by best-ever sales of RAV4 and Highlander.”
Lexus reported September 2015 sales of 25,294 units, up 15.8 percent from September 2014 on a volume basis and 11.1 percent on a DSR basis.
