The all-new, all-electric Toyota bZ4X, arriving in June.

Toyota retains leading market position for new car sales

After a strong start to the first quarter of 2022, Cavan’s main Toyota dealer, Erne Motor Works has maintained its position as Cavan’s best-selling car brand.

Toyota’s market leadership underpins the mass consumer migration towards more sustainable electrified vehicles. In Cavan, hybrid electric cars have increased by 56.36%, whilst the market share of fully electric cars has increased by a considerable 38.24% in comparison with the same period last year. Diesel registrations in Cavan for the same period have seen a staggering drop in market share decreasing by 28.53% locally and 24.77% nationally.

Erne Motor Works continues to dominate the market locally with three of its core hybrid models enjoying Top 5 status. They are the Corolla, CH-R and Rav-4.

The Yaris Hybrid continues to dominate the small car-segment and the newest addition to the Toyota family in this category, the YARIS CROSS, both feature in the top 10 new car registrations in Cavan to date. The latter was recently voted 2022 World Urban Car at the World Car Awards.

Toyota’s latest addition, the New Toyota Aygo X landed at Erne Motor Works last week and is now available to test drive. This all-new Compact crossover boasts first class technology and safety features. Together with its bold design and stand out colour options, Toyota believe the latest model will appeal hugely to first time buyers.

Toyota’s first fully electric battery vehicle, the all-new bZ4X arrives to Erne Motors Works in June 2022. This innovative, efficient and dynamically designed SUV is already attracting serious interest.

In addition to having the widest range of low CO2 emitting cars and selling more electrified passenger cars than any other brand, Toyota has strong stock availability for its leading models.

Dara Fitzpatrick, dealer principal at Erne Motor Works, is delighted to be offering July delivery on leading models but warns customers to book early.

“Despite increased demand, we have strong stock availability for key models and customers can avail of quick delivery on models such as the Corolla Hatchback, Corolla Saloon, Yaris Hybrid, Yaris Petrol and C-HR Hybrid. However, looking forward we know supply will become an issue, so we are encouraging customers or anyone thinking of changing to low emitting hybrid and electric cars to come to our dealership and speak to our salesmen as soon as possible to guarantee delivery.”

Dara is reminding consumers that attractive finance options are available on site, leaving it very streamlined and easy for customers to drive off in their new 222 vehicle with complete confidence.

“We now have a full display of quality used cars at our premises in Cavan. Demand for used cars is high and stock is moving quick. Customers can obtain competitive used car finance on site. Toyota approved cars also come with 12-month warranty, 12-month road side assistance, and a thorough 100-point technical check is carried out pre-delivery. Certain Toyota used cars depending on year and model also come with a two-year service pack.”
