Toyota targets 8% increase in deliveries this year
Reuters | 2019/1/29

BEIJING -- Toyota Motor Corp. aims to increase vehicle sales in China by 8 percent to 1.6 million this year.

Toyota sold 1.47 million vehicles in China last year, up 14 percent from 2017.

Toyota's forecast, released Friday, comes at a time when automakers in China in general are bracing for a tough year after weakness in sales emerged in 2018.

China¡¯s Association of Automobile Manufacturers this month said it expects sales to show no growth, forecasting flat sales of 28.1 million vehicles for 2019. Other government and industry trade groups see a 0-2 percent growth in overall demand.

China¡¯s automotive market last year contracted for the first time since the 1990s.

Despite the slowdown in the overall market, sales by Japanese companies especially Toyota remain strong.

Last year China and Japan pledged to forge closer ties during a three-day visit in October to Beijing by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, signing a broad range of agreements including a $30 billion currency swap pact, amid rising trade tensions with Washington.

During Abe's visit Chinese President Xi Jinping said bilateral ties had returned to the right track and China would ensure that the positive momentum continues, state media reported.
