With sedan and coupe sales plummeting, Toyota may cut some cars from the USA. Which will they pick? It's hard to tell, since sales reports go by model name and don't go into, say, Corolla Hatch vs Corolla Sedan. They might drop some trim levels to simplify the lineup and cut costs, which would make sense.
Corollas and Camrys are still selling very well, but the Corolla can't be very profitable with all that standard safety gear. I would guess the new Subaru/Toyota sports car will be the first to go. Your thoughts?
As a side note, Toyota did not release a full sales chart for October. We know that Lexus' overall sales were 22,716, across numerous vehicles, and I'd think at least one car, maybe the I, would be dropped. LS and ES sales were up, but RX was a major seller with 8,608 — crossovers strike again! NXh is pretty low-sales. Crossovers and SUVs were 15,1010 sales out of 22,716, not much room left for all those sedans and coupes.
As for Toyota, Camry did 26,914 and Corolla did 22,020. Tundra reached 9,571 but it's way way way overdue for a refresh or replacement. I mean, really way overdue, as in “not competitive with anyone.”
