The decision to end sales of the Toyota Camry in the UK market is made just two months after the launch of the sedan’s updated version.
Information about the Toyota Camry, which is only sold with a hybrid powertrain in Europe, is still on the company’s UK website. Nevertheless, the configurator no longer works for the model, and no Camry prices are available in the brand’s latest price list released yesterday, Autocar reported.
In the first nine months of 2021, the British bought just 271 Camry sedans. At the same time, the total sales of Toyota in the country for this period exceeded 63,000 vehicles.
The automaker brought the Camry back to Great Britain in 2019 after 14 years of absence there. Toyota hoped to improve poor sales of the Avensis, but could not, as we can see.
Autocar has asked for an official comment. It is also unclear if the Camry will continue to be on offer in other European markets.
Today, European consumers prefer completely different Toyota models. First of all, this is the new-generation Yaris and the Yaris Cross hatchback-based crossover. Their sales have exceeded 160,000 since the beginning of the year. Next in popularity are the Corolla, C-HR, RAV4 and Aygo.
By the way, sales of a hybrid Highlander, Camry’s platform-mate, are rather high in Europe.
