Toyota Ireland, one of the country’s most successful and loved brands has just hit the monumental 500,000 sales mark for its passenger vehicles. The 500,000th sale was made in February at the Tony Burke Motors Toyota dealership in Ballybrit, Co. Galway, when Siobhan Murphy from Salthill in Galway purchased a new Toyota Yaris.
Commenting on the news, David Shannon, Managing Director of Toyota Ireland said:
‘We’re very proud to have hit the 500,000 sales milestone and would like to thank our loyal customers for their continued support over the years since Toyota first began selling vehicles in Ireland in 1972. We are confident that the quality, reliability, value and choice inherent in the Toyota brand are key contributing factors to the reason why 90% of the people who buy Toyota remain loyal Toyota customers and repurchase.
‘With a great start to 2011 and a number 1 ranking in sales and scrappage, we are laying the very early ground works for the next 500,000 sales.’
