Gulf 1st Half 2015: All Toyota models data now available (BSCB exclusive)
The new generation Toyota Hilux has just launched in the Gulf region.
Thanks to the work of Toyota’s head office in Japan, we are able to share with you today exclusive sales figures for the Gulf Cooperation Council region for all Toyota and Lexus nameplates over the First Half of 2015. Keeping in mind Toyota is over-dominant in the region, this data is equivalent to understanding the Top 5 best-sellers in each country that is part of the area. The data covers no less than 34 nameplates across the Toyota and Lexus brands for the following markets:
– Saudi Arabia
– United Arab Emirates
We learn that the Toyota Hilux is once again the brand’s and the overall best-seller in the region as a whole but also in Saudi Arabia, Oman and the UAE. The Toyota Corolla follows over the GCC region but does not rank #1 anywhere, only #2 in Saudi Arabia below the Hilux. The Toyota Land Cruiser 200 for its part is #1 in Bahrain and Qatar, while the Toyota Prado dominates in Kuwait.
