·    TME’s vehicle sales of 1,076,300 (Jan-Dec 2021) up +8%, reflected strong customer demand,  outperforming a stable market up +1% year-on-year

·    The Toyota brand climbed to 2nd position for best-selling passenger car brands in Europe

·    Sales sustained by high demand for Toyota and Lexus multi-technology, electrified line-up

·    TME achieved European Union and UK CO2 fleet targets(1)

Toyota Motor Europe(2) (TME) reported 2021 sales of 1,076,300 Toyota and Lexus vehicles, again outperforming an overall market which had stabilised due to the combined effects of the pandemic and semi-conductor supply shortage. Across this period, TME’s overall market share increased by 0.4 ppts to 6.4%, an all-time record for the company, reflecting overall growth of +1.4 ppts since 2018.

This performance elevated the Toyota brand for the first time ever to the 2nd placed best-selling passenger car brand in Europe.  A key part of this success can be attributed to record high customer demand for the company’s low CO2 line-up, which encompasses a wide range of battery electric, fuel cell electric, plug-in hybrid electric and hybrid electric vehicles.

TME’s hybrid sales of 623,777 vehicles, up +19% year-on-year, represented 58% of the total mix and 70% in West Europe.

“    We are delighted with another strong annual performance given the challenging supply conditions the entire automotive industry has faced. We thank our customers for their loyalty and trust.

I believe that this continued high demand is testament to our strategy to focus on broadening our range of new zero and low emission electrified vehicles. Our product and powertrain mix have enabled TME to meet its EU and UK CO2 targets in 2021, which we are committed to continue to do in the future as we strive towards carbon neutrality.”

Matt Harrison, President & CEO of Toyota Motor Europe„


In December, both Toyota and Lexus unveiled several new electrified products which will form a core element in its carbon neutral strategy. Globally, the company will offer 30 battery electric vehicles by 2030 covering all segments.

By this date, TME aims to be have a mix of at least 50% zero emission vehicles in Western Europe while the Lexus brand targets a 100% ZEV mix in the same period. Moving towards 2035, TME will be ready for 100% CO2 reduction in all new vehicles within the EU region. Within the shorter term, TME will expand its ZEV product offer to 10 models by 2025.

Toyota increased its share of the mainstream market by +0.6 ppts to 6.3% in 2021, while sales volume grew by +9% to 1,003,859.
