[h1]Toyota sales rise 40 pct in March on incentives[/h1]
NEW YORK

A top Toyota executive says U.S. sales surged 40 percent in March, powered by some of its deepest discounts ever in the wake of millions of recalls.

Toyota Group Vice President Bob Carter says some of the incentives will continue past March, including an offer of free maintenance for return Toyota customers.

Carter made the remarks during an interview at the New York International Auto Show. The Japanese automaker is coping with recalls of more than 8 million vehicles worldwide -- about 6 million in the U.S. -- by offering incentives such as 0-percent financing on recalled models, low-priced leasing and free maintenance.

Carter says Toyota dealers have so far repaired about 2 million recalled vehicles in the U.S.

Moving units is just one aspect of the equation. This may not be profitable for them....yet.

They're setting themselves up for win (if "sales" in this case includes leases) though by clearing inventory. They will get back-end profits on lease returns and their subsequent sales, which won't be recognized for a while.

Sales are up b/c of the heavy discounting.

Wonder what their profits look like.

What's the risk? You taking a chance that you're not smart enough to put a car in neutral? Wooooooooah, don't go too far out on that limb.

More importantly, it eats up market share. Consumers buying toyota means they DIND'T buy any other brand.

These figures almost always mean from last year's sales in March. Business are cyclical and are analyzed from a year to year basis.

That doesn't mean 40% isn't phenomenal though. That's a huge percentage jump no matter what industry you're in.
