CH-R is Toyota's third best-selling model in Europe

By Faiming_low on 06 Jun 2017

Attached Image Despite not offering a diesel option for the compact crossover, the good-looking CH-R is now Toyota Europe's third best-selling model with 80 percent of the buyers choosing the hybrid model over the petrol-only model.

According to AutoNews, which interviewed Matthew Harrison, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Toyota Motors Europe said that the company will comfortably sell more than 100,000 units by the end of this year. "We have more than two months’ worth of order bank, in terms of consumers waiting. We are having to reallocate supply in order to avoid customer dissatisfaction or unnecessary waiting times", he added.

The company which has since sold 31,888 units during the first quarter of the year, beats Renault's Kadjar (29,474 units) and Seat's Ateca (21,707 units) but misses out slightly on Ford's Kuga (40,033 units) and Peugeot's 3008 (37,163 units). Nissan's Qashqai which is the segment's best-seller, is still well ahead with 75,114 units over the same period.

Meanwhile, demand for the CH-R via parallel importers in Singapore remains weaker than expected as high prices and the looming VES situation deter would be buyers.
