Furthermore, Yaris has also shown higher sales than Civic and City during the ongoing year fiscal Year. The report stated that 9,067 new units of Yaris hit the road, while 8,341 vehicles of City and Civic have left the dealerships. The higher sales of Yaris are the major reason in the immense hike in Toyota sales, as the company recorded 120% jump Year on Year basis.
IMC launched Yaris in March this year, but couldn’t sale the car due to COVID-19 lockdown. After the government lifted restrictions, the vehicle has seen a steady rise in sales. The Sedan has proved to be a massive hit for IMC.
