Toyota Australia lifted its February sales over 17 per cent compared with the same month last year, according to official figures released last week.

Australian motorists bought 16,814 Toyota vehicles last month - 17.8 per cent higher than the same month last year and up 15.5 per cent on January 2010.

Toyota's February total was 5,601 vehicles - or approximately 50 per cent - ahead of its nearest rival.

The most popular Toyota vehicles were HiLux (3,271 sold), Corolla (3,042) and Camry (2,116). So far this year, Toyota dealers have sold 31,378 vehicles or 9,647 more than any other brand.

Toyota is the only vehicle maker to have surpassed 30,000 sales in the first two months of any year - a feat it has achieved on three previous occasions.

The company's executive director sales and marketing, Matthew Callachor, said the market-leading result was due to a strong vehicle line-up supported by customer-focused dealers.

Mr Callachor said a highlight was introduction of Toyota's petrol-electric Hybrid Camry - the first hybrid car to be built in Australia. He said Hybrid Camry sales totalled 742 or approximately one-third of all Camry sales.
