TOYOTA REPORTS MAY MONTH-END SALES

 TOYOTA REPORTS MAY MONTH-END SALES
 TORRANCE, Calif., June 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Toyota Motor Sales (TMS)


U.S.A. Inc. today reported May 1992 sales.
 Toyota's total U.S. vehicle sales for May 1992 were 88,266, down 5.4 percent from May 1991. Calendar year-to-date (CYTD) sales are at 421,879, up 7.2 percent over the same period last year.
 "While it's tough to pick the exact moment when the recession will pack up and leave, upward trends in consumer confidence and manufacturing indicate a comeback in car sales," said Yale Gieszl, TMS executive vice president.
 "Not only has manufacturing for export held steady, but manufacturing in general shows some expansion. That means more overtime, and the next step is increased hiring."
 Toyota Division sold 81,357 vehicles in May 1992, down 7.9 percent from 1991. May increases include Corolla, up 9.7 percent to 19,768; Paseo, up 212 percent to 3,753; and pickups, up 6.1 percent to 15,570.
 Toyota's North American-built vehicles represent 41.6 percent of all its vehicles sold in May and 34.7 percent CYTD.
 Lexus Division reported May sales of 6,909, up 38.1 percent, led by a 79.5 percent increase in ES 300 sales. Lexus sold 37,509 vehicles CYTD, up 72.4 percent over the same period last year.
