Inchape Group, which includes Toyota Romania, has registered a turnover of EUR 116.4 million in the first six months of 2017, up 25.9% year-on-year.
The growth was mainly registered due to the very good performance of new car sales, and the mix of sales in which Lexus and hybrid cars have played an essential role, according to the company.
Moreover, the sale of parts and accessories also contributed to the visible increase in turnover. As a result, over EUR 7 million were generated on this segment, an increase of over 8% year-on-year.
The best-selling model with conventional engine was Toyota Corolla, a model that represents over 25% of the group’s sales. Meanwhile, Yaris Hybrid was the best-selling model with hybrid engine, while Toyota Hybrid reached a total market share of 88% on the eco segment, with 863 units sold.
