TORRANCE, Calif., June 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- On average, Americans drove
away in a new Camry every minute in the month of May. Nearly 50,000 owners
placed their trust in Camry's safety, reliability and long-term value. 

"There's a reason Americans choose Camry, and it shows in sales month after
month," said Bob Carter, vice president of automotive operations for Toyota
Motor Sales, USA, Inc. "It's America's best-selling car, but more important is
the one Camry in the customer's driveway. The one Camry that gets you and your
family to work, school, vacation, the Camry that works in a business
enterprise, the one Camry you trust to be reliable and help keep your family
safe."

Recently, Camry's quality was affirmed by top honors in the JD Power and
Associates IQS and VDS studies. It was also awarded a 5-star safety rating
from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, was placed on the
"Best Midsize Car for the Money" list by US News and World Report and "Most
Popular" list by Edmunds.

Of the 10.3 million Camrys sold in the U.S. in the last 31 years, more than
6.7 million are still on the road. Today, every Camry sold in North America
comes from plants in Indiana and Kentucky, manufactured by more than 7,000
skilled U.S. workers who take pride in every Camry that rolls off the line.

Camry May sales of 49,584 units were up over 26 percent, topping its segment
by almost 10,000 units. To put it into perspective, Camry has exceeded monthly
sales of 50,000 units only four other times in its history.

America's best-selling car will get even better, as the redesigned 2015 Camry
comes to market later this year aimed at satisfying thousands, one customer at
a time.
