Numbers in 2021

On April 27th, 2022, Toyota shared its result of car sales in 2021 through its official homepage. As we have already reported, the Japanese company sold more than 10 million vehicles in 2021. Toyota has group companies, which are Daihatsu and Hino. The number of sales in all group companies became 10,381,258 and it is increasing by 4.7% compared to last year.

Even though the sales in Japan became less than 2 million vehicles two consecutive years, Toyota achieved the impressive number. In fact, the Japanese automotive giant experienced the difficult situation such as COVID-19 and supply shortage. However, it sold 8,383,163 cars overseas and it is increasing by 8.5% compared to last year.

Toyota’s rivals are struggling. For example, the Volkswagen Group sold 8,348,400 vehicles in 2021, but the number is decreasing by 14.2% compared to 2020. Another example is the alliance among Nissan, Mitsubishi and Renault. They sold 7,340,180 vehicles in 2021 and it is decreasing by 8.7% compared to last year.
