UMW Toyota Motor has continued its momentum into the new year with solid sales performance again in February, registering a total of 6,432 units sold consisting of 6,366 Toyota and 66 Lexus vehicles.
The figure represents a significant 27% jump compared to the same period last year (5,074 units combined), although a slight decrease (14.5%) from its sales figures in January.

Although the company did not provide a detailed model-to-model breakdown of its sales figures this time round, it’s keeping an optimistic outlook moving forward, especially with ongoing promotions in March that offer value added benefits worth RM4,000 for the Vios and Yaris, alongside upcoming “highly anticipated product launches” – which should include the updated Vios soon, and possibly even the GR86.
The new 2022 Toyota Camry, which was launched just last month, should also help bolster the company’s performance in the coming months.
“We truly appreciate the support our customers have given towards the Toyota brand and are optimistic about the continuous growth of the Malaysian automotive sector. As we continue to innovate and bring mobility products offering the absolute best technology and safety that enhances lifestyles, we trust that Malaysians will continue to choose Toyota as their preferred road companion,” said UMW Toyota Motor President, Ravindran K.
Aside from sales, UMW Toyota also announced that it has contributed RM140,000 to the Naational Cancer Society Malaysia (NCSM) in February. The funds will go towards the purchase of a new Digital Doppler Ultrasound Machine to provide better treatment to cancer patients.
Separately, the company also concluded its 15th Dream Car Art Contest, which saw a total of 2,300 entries from children up to the age of 15. The three winners of the National Contest, announced earlier this month, will represent Malaysia in the World Contest in Japan in August this year.
“As a leader in mobility, UMW Toyota Motor is committed to propel society forward by educating, engaging and empowering people beyond the road. We endeavour to do what wecan to give back and help local communities in various areas to enhance lifestyles of today and the future,” Ravindran K. added.
UMW Toyota also recently unveiled a new 2S outlet with Body & Paint services in Skudai, Johor. The opening of the new outlet is in partnership with Super Evergreen (Nusajaya) to accommodate the steadily increasing number of Toyota customers in the state, and joins the company’s expanding network of authorised facilities around the country.
