 In recent years, Toyota's share in the Chinese passenger vehicle market is slowly declining after hitting a peak at 6.4% in 2008. In order to recover and expand sales in China, Toyota will release next-generation models of its hybrid vehicles (HVs), plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHVs) and electric vehicles (EVs). Furthermore,Toyota has begun to explore new possibilities in the market, by leasing welfare vehicles to meet the needs of the rapidly aging Chinese society.

Toyota sales in China: passenger vehicles as driving force

Market share by region in China, Japan, North America and Asia to Toyota's global sales
(Note) Except for “Toyota sales in China”, Toyota’s regional market share in “North America”, “Japan” and “Asia excluding 'Japan' and 'China'”, are the results of totals for Toyota and Lexus brands. “Toyota sales in China” is based on the number of Toyota brand models on wholesale/factory shipment basis, and the targets or forecasts for 2013 and 2015 are based on Toyota’s press releases.

  With the growth of the Chinese market, the ratio of Toyota sales in China in the company's global sales (excluding Hino and Daihatsu models) grew to 12.6% (895,000 units) in 2011 from 7.5% (598,000 units) in 2008. However, the ratio fell to 9.8% (853,000 units) in 2012, due to the outbreak of anti-Japan demonstrations. Toyota says it plans to increase the ratio of its sales in China in the global sales to 15% (approx. 1.35 million units) over the medium term, around 2015.


 Toyota's share in China is slowly declining after hitting a peak at 6.4% in 2008. It continued to fall to 4.4% in 2012. Meanwhile, Volkswagen and General Motors, which are Toyota's competitors for the top position in terms of global sales, are increasing their market share in China taking advantage of sluggish sales of Japanese carmakers. From 2011 to now, Toyota's share in China has been in the fifth place following Volkswagen, General Motors, Hyundai/Kia and Nissan.

 As of August 2013, Toyota aims to recover its sales share in China to 4.6-4.7% in 2013 from the bottom figure of 4.4% in 2012, and further increase it to 5.3% in 2015.


 Many Chinese auto industry experts attribute Toyota's weak market position in China to a delayed entry into the Chinese market compared to Volkswagen and General Motors. A recovery of sales in 2012 was negatively impacted by the outbreak of anti-Japan demonstrations in China. In view of its sluggish sales behind Nissan, Toyota has changed its business policy and market strategy in China: 1) to promptly understand the needs of its Chinese customers and reflect those needs on the development of the market; and 2) to speed up the pace of localization from product planning, development to production.

Toyota's sales strategies in China
Details
Business policy * To conform to the Chinese government's new and revised policies as well as to focus constantly on the needs of local customers.
 Toyota will realize the "genuine local production" and promote energy-saving/new-energy vehicles (i.e. green vehicles). It aims to become an automaker with the most powerful product lineups including the global-best new-energy vehicle lineup.
* To provide next-generation eco cars, starting with hybrid vehicles (HV) to be followed by other new-energy vehicles including plug-in hybrids (PHV) and electric vehicles (EV), which all share the core basic technologies such as motors, secondary batteries and electronic control systems.
* To accelerate and strengthen localization of the business management systems in China.
Expectation for business in China * To become a driving force of Toyota's growth
* Precisely grasp the needs of Chinese customers and become the base to swiftly reflect the needs on product development.
Eco-technologies, energy-saving/ new-energy vehicles business * To promote multi-directional strategies for new-energy vehicles by concurrently pursuing energy (petroleum)-saving and petroleum-free technologies. Especially, Toyota places strong emphasis on energy-saving/new-energy technologies represented by the "full" hybrid system that combines an electric motor and a gasoline engine to operate a vehicle.
 <Energy saving> To promote fuel efficiency (energy saving)/ downsizing of vehicles with conventional internal combustion engines. To spread non plug-in type hybrid vehicles as well.
<Petroleum free>
 Toyota plans to evolve HV to PHV/EV (BEV) and other new-energy vehicles in order to finally depart from dependence on petroleum.
Social Contribution or Responsibility * In addition to precedent efforts to promote human resource development and the non-profit reforestation program, Toyota will further invest in non-profit activities and strengthen management in such activities in order to show its gratitude toward the Chinese society and to contribute to its sustainable development.
 Note: TMCI, Toyota's subsidiary responsible for its businesses in China, formed an exclusive department, "Shehui Gongxian Bu" called in Chinese, to manage CSR (corporate social responsibility) activities in China prior to April 2012.
Sales target * For 2013
 950,000 to 970,000 units in total (including the Lexus and imports, wholesale/factory shipment basis, released around February 2013.) Sales volume is broken down to:
 (according to a release of Toyota around August 2013, Toyota's sales target in China was 900,000 units or more. Its breakdown is unknown.)
 <FAW Toyota Moto Sales Co., Ltd. (FTMS)> 580,000 to 600,000 units (factory shipment basis)
 <GAC Toyota Motor Co., Ltd. (GTMC)> 290,000 units (factory shipment basis)
 <Lexus> 80,000 units (import only)
 In September 2013, the target share of Lexus hybrid models has been raised to 30% from 25%, which has been set at the beginning of the year.
* For 2015
 Sales volume in China will account for approximately 15% of Toyota global sales (According to press releases for interviews for executive officers at Toyota China in October 2012 and February 2013)
 On factory shipment basis, approximately 1.35 million units including Lexus models and imports (Estimate by MarkLines made by referring to Toyota's global sales target of 9 million units for 2015, excluding Daihatsu and Hino models)
 <FTMS> 750,000 units in total (wholesale/ factory shipment basis, estimate by MarkLines)
 Note that the figure released by FTMS in May 2012 was 1 million units.
 <500,000 units (wholesale/ factory shipment basis, announced by GAC Toyota in August 2013)

 <Lexus> Lexus hybrid models accounting for 50% of total Lexus sales in China (7% in 2011 and 23% in 2012. Target for 2013 is 30%)
"Yundong/Cloud Action Plan",
the new China business plan
* Toyota will expand businesses in China in the following three phases of strategies.
 <Phase I>
 In 2012, Toyota originally aimed to sell one million vehicles, including the Lexus brand cars, in China. Anti-Japan demonstrations/boycott of Japanese cars in late 2012, however, negatively affected sales to result in 853,500 vehicles released by Toyota.
 Another target, building a sound foundation for energy-efficient/new-energy cars such as PHV and EV, was shelved due to anti-Japan demonstrations.
 <Phase II>
 For 2015, Toyota originally set the sales target of 1.6 to 1.8 million units including the Lexus and other import vehicle, which we at MarkLines Co., Ltd. estimates to drop to more realistic one around 1.35 million units due to prolonged effects of anti-Japanese demonstrations.
 Toyota's joint venture (JV) in China will start production of hybrid vehicles equipped with locally developed/manufactured hybrid components including drive train systems.
 <Phase III>
 To establish the business development strategies focused on energy-saving/new-energy vehicles and accelerate launching such vehicles so that as many consumers as possible can experience them.
 Energy-saving/new-energy vehicles should contribute 20% of Toyota's entire sales in China.
Products
(Manufacturing)
* To establish an integrated production system from model planning, R&D and production to meet the needs of local consumers. To offer high-quality vehicles (products) beyond expectations that can move the consumers of each segment.
Model planning * To release a total of 20 new models in the three years 2013-2015 in China, including the Lexus and imports, including fully redesigned and all-new models, excluding facelifted models.
 Note: To accelerate development of locally-produced vehicles in China, mainly for Toyota's global strategic models. To develop vehicle models that can meet local demand.
 Out of 20 new models, nine or more will be produced at Toyota's joint venture plants in China (including fully-redesigned models, excluding facelifted models), which can be broken down to:
 <TFTM/SFTM> 5 or more in total
 <GTMC> 4 or more in total (one or two models a year)
Welfare vehicles * To aim for the realization of a goal to allow all the people in Chinese society, including the elderly and physically challenged, to enjoy the benefits of motorization. (Contribute to the realization of a harmonized automobile society )
* To sincerely and actively promote the welfare vehicle businessfocusing on the challenges of the large population of disabled people in China and the issue of a declining birthrate coupled with an aging population, which has become increasingly serious.

Note) As of November 2012, Toyota has completed a field survey of the Chinese welfare vehicle market. Currently Toyota is in discussions with and making proposals to a government agency in China regarding the laws as well as the regulation and certification system for welfare vehicles.
Services * Under the "Customer Satisfaction First" policy, Toyota aims for the realization of the use of Toyota and Lexus brand vehicles that customers can trust.
* From the viewpoint/standpoint of the customers, Toyota will offer impressive after-sales services through which customers can access premium automotive service.

Welfare vehicle business: starting lease and trial operations

Toyota starts trial operations of welfare vehicles in Shanghai and Beijing for a period of one and a half years to explore the possibilities of the welfare vehicle business in China

 In May 2013, Toyota announced that it will start leasing welfare vehicles in Shanghai and Beijing on a trial basis for a period of one and a half years, starting in June 2013. In May 2013, Toyota leased five welfare vehicles based on the Alfhard and the Hiace for free to Shanghai Civil Affairs Bureau and Riei (Beijing) Administration and Consulting Co., Ltd., a Chinese subsidiary of Riei Co., Ltd., a provider of corporate welfare services and comprehensive nursing care services. This move is to explore possibilities of the welfare vehicle business in China, which faces coming aging society coupled with a declining birthrate.
 In addition, Toyota Motor (China) Investment Co., Ltd., Toyota’s business headquarters in China, started a campaign in August 2013 under a slogan to offer the convenience of vehicles to all the people. In the campaign, Toyota offers the Alphard welfare vehicles during the period of one week by the end of 2013 to four families chosen in a lottery, having a family member who is 65 years old or older, or who faces difficulties in travelling. Toyota will also offer financial support for the families to go out by car.
 At the end of 2011, 13.7% of total population of China, or 185 million, are 60 years old or older. Number of physically handicapped people exceeded 83 million. The total population of 60 years old or older is expected to be 221 million in 2015, of which 51 million living alone and 24 million aged 80 or older. With the advancement of aging in society coupled with a declining birthrate, these figures are expected to increase in the future. (according to an announcement of the Ministry of Civil Affairs of China posted on the Beijing Morning Post dated on March 2, 2012. Beijing Morning Post is an influential newspaper in Beijing)

 

 



Small “4S” dealer expansion in small and medium-scale cities

As a new policy to expand its sales network more quickly and efficiently, Toyota will focus on increasing small “4S” dealers in small cities near rural districts.. 4S stands for Sales, Service, Spare parts and Survey. At the end of 2012, there were more than 900 dealers in China, including more than 800 selling Toyota brand models. This will be increased to 1,080 (including 960 dealers selling Toyota brands) at the end of 2013.


 Toyota will increase its small “4S” dealers. Compared with the construction and service standards for standard 4Sdealers, small 4S dealers require a smaller investment of approximately RMB 3 million to 4 million with sites of at least 2,040 square meters and an after-sales service area of at least 480 square meters. With the increase of small 4S dealers, Toyota will introduce new sales channels such as satellite dealers to expand its sales system. 

 FTMS, a JV sales company between Toyota and FAW, has announced a policy to accelerate expansion of its dealer network from the second half of 2013. As of August 2013, the number of "4S" dealers, including small "4S", which have been approved by Toyota and are scheduled to begin operations soon, exceeds 100.

 GTMC, a JV sales company with Guangzhou Automobile Industry Group (GAC), will have 78 more dealers at the end of 2013 from 372 in August 2013. GTMC will also open satellite dealers to a total of 50 at the end of 2013, further increasing it to 150 in 2015.


 Toyota is considering producing Lexus models in China, rather than selling imports. Lexus dealers located mainly in big cities will be expanded to small and medium cities by opening small 4S dealers that require less investment than standard 4S dealers. As of August 2013, Lexus has opened showrooms in 18 cities in China.
