January 12, 2010 Leave a comment

Throughout the 5 years leading to 2010, the Toyota Corolla Altis has remained the best-selling car in Taiwan. The figures available for this period only take into account the models produced in the country, but imports are minimal in Taiwan anyway.

Below the Corolla, the Toyota Camry, Wish, Yaris and Vios also sell very well in the country, making the Top 4 an exclusive Toyota affair, except in 2007 when the Honda CR-V manages to grab an excellent 4th place with 17,643 sales.
