in the US, the one fact that comes out clear is that the Toyota Corolla is much
in demand in the 150 countries it is sold across the world. Toyota Motor Sales
(TMS), U.S.A., Inc., has announced Corolla global sales of 1.22 million units
in 2013, according to the company’s internal data based on individual vehicle
sales reporting from its distributors.
According to a company statement, the 5pc
year-over-year increase confirms the Corolla’s perennial popularity among loyal
customers. “The Corolla stands as the
international face of Toyota and touches millions of people across the globe
every day,” said Bill Fay, Toyota division group vice president and general
manager. “Being the world’s best-selling
car speaks volumes about the satisfaction and loyalty our customers feel about
the Corolla and Toyota.”
Thanks to the recent redesign, including
amplified elements of design and improved fuel economy, Corolla’s worldwide
cumulative sales since its introduction in 1966 topped 40.72 million units as
of February 2014, making it the all-time best-selling vehicle model.
Based on Toyota’s analysis of Polk new vehicle
registration data from IHS Automotive, which captures 96 percent of global new
vehicle volumes, the Corolla is the world’s best-selling vehicle model for 2013
with global registrations of 1,098,524 million units.
This figure includes Corolla sedan and other
variations in name such as Corolla Axio, Corolla Altis and Corolla EX 4-door
sedans. The subscripts “Axio” “Altis”
and “EX” denote trim levels of the 4-door Corolla sedan sold in various global
regions, including Japan. Also included

In the U.S., the all-new Corolla posted sales
of more than 300,000 units in 2013, a 4pc increase year-over-year. In 2013, 97 percent of all Corollas sold in
the U.S. were built in North America.
