UMW Toyota Motor Expects To Build On June Sales Momentum With Veloz Launch

With a positive sales momentum going, UMW Toyota Motor Sdn Bhd (UMWT) is expecting this trend to continue with the impending launch of the all-new Toyota Veloz. In June 2022, UMWT sold a total of 8,939 vehicles (Toyota [8,870] and Lexus [69] combined). Comparatively, UMWT recorded total sale of 7,579 vehicles (Toyota [7,442] and Lexus [137]) in May.

The company’s total year-to-date sales in June 2022 stands at 45,911 vehicles (Toyota and Lexus combined). This is a 35% year-on-year increase compared with the total of 34,111 vehicles (Toyota + Lexus) for the same period in 2021.

However, according to UMWT, the recent announcement on the SST exemption is expected to have a short-term negative impact on sales. Nonetheless, this is mitigated by early signs of a recovery in the global shortage of semiconductors in the 2nd half of this year. This means that production could be ramped up to meet the backlog of orders, and that it could bode well for the newer and more sophisticated models that will launch in due course.

This all-new crossover comes with a new platform, transmission and suspension setup that promises better fuel efficiency and comfort. It will also have Toyota Safety Sense (TSS), including adaptive cruise control, as well as a 9″ infotainment touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, and Qi wireless charging pad.

There also seems to be more differentiation from its sister model this time in the exterior and interior. According to the Toyota website, there will be 5 colour options available, including a pair with 2-tone scheme (i.e. black roof). All authorised Toyota showrooms are now accepting bookings for the all-new Veloz.

“Shifting gears into the second half of 2022, UMW Toyota Motors is focused on going the Extra Mile to provide Toyota owners with the best ownership and aftersales experience by reimagining what ownership is about. Looking ahead, shifting consumer behaviours will likely place value on advanced automotive technologies and comprehensive security features supported by a host of value-added aftersales services,” said Ravindran K, President of UMWT.
