More than 51,500 vehicles were manufactured in the two plants in 2015, up 23.3 percent against the previous year.

Vios was the best-selling model ​of Toyota Vietnam last year, hitting 13,761 units, nearly doubling the sales recorded in 2014. The Corolla model came second with 5,926 cars sold, a year-on-year increase of 10 percent.

Toyota looks forward to a 10 percent expansion in its yearly sales in 2016.

While automobile production and sales are running smoothly, those for motorbikes have gotten stuck.

The factories of Honda Vietnam and Piaggio Vietnam in Vinh Phuc manufactured 1,910,000 units in 2015, a decline of 15 percent year-on-year.

This is the third consecutive year the manufacture of motorcycles has experienced such a sharp fall. This is forecast to greatly impact Vinh Phuc province’s budget collection as the industry is a significant contributor to the locality’s budget./.
