Toyota Camry Sales Go Past 10 Million
The 10 million represents about 20% of all the car ever sold by Toyota in the US, meaning the model is pretty much an American tradition now.
The current Toyota Camry went on sale in the US in September 2011 as a 212 mode year car. It's been praised for its good interior and ride, but doesn't have the market all to itself, with a number of rivals closing in on the mid-size.
Although still hugely popular and a best-seller for Toyota, Camry sales have dropped from 470,000 in 2007 to a little over 300,000 in 2011.
“We couldn’t be more excited about Camry’s 10 millionth sale in the U.S.,” said Bob Carter, senior vice president of automotive operations of Toyota Motor Sales, USA, Inc. “With the support of so many loyal customers, Camry has truly become part of the country’s fiber. For seven generations, Toyota dealers have also been instrumental in getting Americans behind the wheel of a Camry. Camry is definitely helping Toyota Go Places."
