Toyota is Ireland’s Most Popular Car Brand

New Independent Study Reveals Toyota has highest number of vehicles in Irish Car Parc

Toyota is the most popular car brand in Ireland with the highest number of vehicles in the Irish Car Parc, totalling 385,000 currently, according to a comprehensive Cartell report on the used vehicle market.

The report also revealed that Toyota was one of the three highest selling brands of the used vehicle market in 2014 when all vehicle types, private and commercial, were considered.

Published on July 9th, 2014, in the study, Cartell considered the Irish Car Parc as a whole, as well as used vehicle sales for the first 4 months of the year i.e. 1st January to 30th April 2014 (and used vehicle sales for 1st January to 30th April 2013.)

The findings follow a study first published in July 2013, and the again in January 2014, in which Cartell revealed that Toyota vehicles ranked highest in Ireland for retaining their residual value.

Commenting on the study, Mr. David Shannon, Managing Director of Toyota Ireland said: "The value of a Toyota vehicle is lasting and tops all other vehicle brands, as proven by another Cartell study published in 2013 and again in 2014. We are immensely proud to be the most popular car brand in Ireland and the value retention credentials, low cost of ownership and reliability of a Toyota provide compelling reasons to buy, whether used or new."
