The automaker, Toyota, has seen a 14 per cent shoot up in its operating profit in the second quarter. Its financial statement reveals on Thursday, September 30th.

 This, according to Toyota’s Operating Officer Ken Kon was possible despite the roller-coaster nature of the Foreign Exchange Rates. The increase was as a result of sales maximization and effective cost control.

The automobile company, by the end of its second quarter, had a fiscal profit of up to $6.14 billion, which is equivalent to 662.3 billion Chinese Yen.

 Total Revenue grew up to 4.5 per cent – $70.8 billion (7.64 trillion yen), net income shot up by 1.2 per cent – $5.49 billion (592.0 billion yen).

Aside from that, the company has advanced its global retail sales to about 2.75 million vehicles, with sales from its Daihatsu small car and truck affiliate Hino. Wholesale worldwide as well saw an upwards increase of 7 per cent to 2.34 million vehicles.

In giving the announcement, the operating officer Mr Kon said North America, which is its single biggest market, emerged the more significant contributor to its profit growth in the second quarter and according to him:

 “We are promoting activities, such as carefully and strategically examining the allocation of incentives, strengthening model-based cost reduction activities, making efforts to improve the supply of SUV and light trucks, improving the productivity of each of our manufacturing plants and reducing fixed costs on the companywide scale.” 

Toyota has set a target of spending hugely on the type of vehicles that needs it while dialling back on those that don’t need it.

Wholesale in Europe also increased by 4.2 per cent to 250,000 vehicles in the just-ended quarter. Meanwhile, Toyota has underestimated its sales forecast for the new fiscal year ending on March 31st, 2020, but predicted global wholesale delivery of only about 0.3 per cent, which is 8.95 million vehicles.

Toyota has been experiencing low demand in Asia, including China, but now experiencing strong demand for its updated models such as Levin, Avalon, Camry Sedans, and the luxury Lexus brand of ES sedan.
