Toyota Global Sales and Production Secures 90 Percent Level Year-on-Year in FY2021

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, which began spreading early in 2020, Toyota was able to continue corporate activities through comprehensive implementation of various infection prevention measures and by working with partners including suppliers and dealers, and focusing on “doing what should be done.”

In addition to these efforts, with the support of customers around the world who favor Toyota cars, Toyota’s global sales and production have both been up year-on-year since September 2020, enabling Toyota to limit the year-on-year decline in sales and production to less than 10 percent in FY2021.

Additionally, Toyota has maintained domestic production at the 3-million-unit level.

Global Sales

  • Global sales in FY2021 were down 4.0 percent, driven primarily by sales in China, North America, and Japan.

  • Global sales were up 19.1 percent year-on-year in the January to March quarter, exceeding initial expectations.*
