* Toyota Motor Europe (TME) continues strong penetration with 598,888 vehicles sold in the first half of 2021, recording a record market share of 6.6 percent
* Best sales in the first half of 2007 due to high demand for Toyota and Lexus hybrid models
* Toyota retained its second place in Europe with a great placement, during this calendar year
"Demand remains at a high level and we have already revised our sales plan for 2021 to 1.15 million vehicles. We also have a record number of orders of around 200,000, but we are not immune to the supply disruption challenges facing the entire auto industry. "Our multi-technological approach to electrification, on the road to zero emissions, has enabled us to consistently meet customer requirements and exceed our CO2 emissions targets in the EU."
Matt Harrison, President and CEO of Toyota Motor Europe
