Toyota released a report today saying it has recorded its best non-holiday sales weekend of the year, with sales of nearly 20,000 units, which represents a 12 percent volume increase when compared to the same weekend las year - March 22-23.

But that’s not all, because overall retail sales are up 4 percent higher than the same period of the month from last year (March 1-23).

“Traffic at dealerships is picking up nationwide, which will benefit industry sales in March,” said Bill Fay, Toyota division group vice president and general manager.  “At Toyota, we see retail strength in pickups and SUVs, and strong momentum for Camry.”

The 2014 Toyota Tundra appears to hold the crown regarding year-over-year sales in March scoring about 30 percent more than in 2013. Next comes the new Highlander with 24 percent, followed by the Camry with 14% increase, and the RAV4 with 10 percent. Additionally, the whole truck segment registerd a 10 percent sales increase.
