Car loans boost Toyota's EU sales

Toyota has reported a massive jump in sales of its own-name and Lexus branded vehicles, no doubt helped by the company's strong environmental image and its cars' affordability with car finance.

Toyota has reported a massive jump in sales of its own-name and Lexus branded vehicles, no doubt helped by the company's strong environmental image and its cars' affordability with car finance.

The first half of this year saw a 14 per cent increase in European sales compared to the same time last year, far outstripping the average for European car manufacturers at closer to two per cent.

The Yaris again proved very popular, with almost 145,000 sold in just six months, with the new Auris selling 67,000, a much higher number than the company had been expecting so close to the launch of this new car.

These two compact vehicles have sold well both for their small design and nimble handling, but also because they are both affordable for almost every motorist with a competitive car finance or car credit deal.

Buying with credit or a car loan helps bring down your monthly payments, making modest but well designed vehicles like these a popular choice both for new drivers and small families.

The hybrid Prius also saw its sales jump 53 per cent to over 16,000 units, as a rapidly growing group of motorists become more concerned about limiting their carbon emissions.
