The Boston region, which includes 72 dealerships in Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and Rhode Island, reported total sales of 86,672 units, with strong performance across Toyota's entire product lineup, including:

  • All-time record sales of the Prius family of vehicles, which increased by 46.2 percent over 2011 to 10,209 units, bolstered by the launch of the all-new Prius v, Prius c and Prius Plug-in.

  • Corolla sales of 13,099 units, an increase of 13.8 percent year-over-year.
  • RAV4 sales of 13,578 units, 17 percent higher than 2011, and the second-best year ever for the model.
  • Venza sales of 3,338 units, up 67.6 percent year-over-year, and the highest sales increase by percentage for the vehicle in the nation.
  • Highlander sales of 6,378 units, the highest since 2007.
  • Higher sales of both the Tacoma mid-size pickup truck and Tundra full-size pickup, which increased by 6.7 percent and 13.3 percent, respectively.  

Overall, Toyota Division light trucks recorded their third-best year ever at 42,833 units, while passenger car sales totaled 43,839 units.

In addition, Toyota's Scion brand posted its best year in four years with sales up 30 percent from 2011.

"We're grateful to our customers for their continued loyalty and support," said Cooper Ericksen, general manager of Toyota's Boston Region. "With nine new or updated models on the way in 2013, including the all-new RAV4 and Avalon, we're confident 2013 will be another strong year for Toyota."
