Toyota attributed the increase in sales in many major markets to an easing in the shortage of semiconductors which led to higher production and better availability of cars in 2023. Demand was particularly strong in the USA, which remained the most important single country market for Toyota and Lexus cars.

Sales were flat in China, despite the Chinese new car market expanding to a record 25.8 million sales in 2023. Toyota seemed to have been caught off guard by the swing to electric cars with its own BEV availability and offering still lacking behind that of domestic Chinese automobile producers.

Toyota sales growth in Japan was a very strong 29.8% — Lexus sales more than doubled by 129% in 2023.
