2012 Toyota Camry Launch Pushed Up to Bolster Slumping Sales
Times have been difficult in the past four months for the giant Japanese Automaker, Toyota. With four consecutive months of sales declines, a 13% drop to 129,482 units in August alone, actions are in order for a much needed rebound.
This action will come in the form of the redesigned 2012 Toyota Camry, now set to deliver ahead of its original October 3 launch date and will be available in dealerships by mid-September. Confident and excited of the new model’s potential, Jeff Bracken, Toyota’s VP of Sales, confirms that production of the new Camry will begin at their Kentucky plant in only a matter of days.
As far as the outgoing Camry is concerned, Bracken tells media that the “sell-down is going extremely well.” Bracken also revealed that we should also expect a redesigned Yaris to arrive in showrooms later this month, as well as a new, taller Prius V for October.
