Toy­ota Motor Sales (TMS), U.S.A., Inc., today reported Sep­tem­ber 2013 sales results of 164,457 units, an increase of 4 per­cent over Sep­tem­ber 2012 on a daily sell­ing rate (DSR) basis.  On a raw-volume basis, unad­justed for 23 sell­ing days in Sep­tem­ber 2013 ver­sus 25 sell­ing days in Sep­tem­ber 2012, TMS sales decreased 4.3 per­cent from year-ago month.

“Sep­tem­ber was a solid month for the auto indus­try despite two fewer sell­ing days,” said Bill Fay, Toy­ota Divi­sion group vice pres­i­dent and gen­eral man­ager. “Indus­try fun­da­men­tals are strong as inter­est rates stay low and con­sumers remain confident.”
