Toyota HiLux tops 750,000 sales

 

The “unbreakable” ute the Toyota HiLux, has notched up 750,000 sales in Australia, according to the latest sales figures.
 
Toyota's executive director sales and marketing Matthew Callachor said the 750,000 milestone was achieved as surging demand in 2012 lifted HiLux beyond 40,000 deliveries for the year.
 
"HiLux is an incredible Australian success story – the nation's best-selling commercial vehicle for the past 22 years in a row and the top-selling 4WD vehicle for the past eight, Mr Callachor said.
 
"It has been Australia's best-selling vehicle outright on many occasions, including six times last year. It is the only ute to have achieved that landmark.”
 
The first HiLux arrived in Australia in 1971 (as a 4x2) through then national distributor, Thiess Toyota. 
 
Last year, HiLux achieved its third best sales on record – 40,646.
