Toyota Motor Corp. and Honda Motor Co., Japan’s two biggest automakers, led the tenth straight increase in the nation’s monthly auto sales as government incentives boosted demand.

Sales of cars, trucks and buses, excluding minicars, rose 28 percent to 228,514 vehicles in May from a year earlier, the Japan Automobile Dealers Association said in a statement today. Toyota, the world’s largest carmaker, sold 112,174 units, excluding Lexus-brand cars, up 39 percent.

Japan’s auto sales began recovering from a year-long slide in August as government rebates and tax cuts for fuel-efficient vehicles rekindled demand. The incentives helped raise sales by about 600,000 vehicles last year and may increase them by about 900,000 this calendar year, the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association said in December.

“Car sales, especially of hybrids, have been doing very well because of the incentives,” said Yoshiaki Kawano, an analyst at auto consulting company CSM Worldwide Inc. in Tokyo. “Some carmakers are waiting until after the program expires to bring out new models to offset the expected drop.”

May sales rose 16 percent at Honda, while Nissan Motor Co., the nation’s third-largest automaker, sold 9 percent more vehicles.

Under a government program started in June, consumers in Japan can apply for a rebate of as much 250,000 yen ($2,747) subsidy if they scrap a car more than 13 years old to buy a new one, and 100,000 yen for a new car purchased without scrapping an old one. The program expires at the end of September.

Electric, hybrid, natural-gas, and some diesel vehicles also qualify for an exemption from the country’s weight and purchase taxes.

Japan’s vehicle sales may fall 4.9 percent to 4.65 million units for the fiscal year that began April 1 as the government subsidy program’s expiration discourages buyers, according to the automakers association.

Toyota shares fell 0.8 percent to 3,255 yen as of 2:05 p.m., while shares of Honda dropped 0.6 percent to 2,754 yen in Tokyo. Nissan shares fell 1.7 percent to 653 yen.

Ford crowned itself king of the Canadian auto market Tuesday, while sales at Chrysler and GM both revved up leaving manufactures Toyota and Honda in their dust.

Sales at Ford Motor Company of Canada sped up by 19% in May over the same month last year with the Taurus, Edge and Lincoln MKX models driving the gains.

Canadian drivers purchased 26,122 vehicles in the month.

“With sales of 101,054 units year-to-date, Ford of Canada continues to lead the market,” the automaker said.

The competition was fierce in May as sales of light vehicles in Canada across all manufacturers were up just 0.2% over last year's depressed levels, according to data by Desrosier Automotive Consultants Inc.

Chrysler Canada was also among May's big winners, posting a 53% increase fueled by brisk minivan sales. The automaker sold 20,887 units in the month. It was Chrysler’s sixth consecutive monthly increase of 20% or more in year-over-year growth.

At General Motors of Canada, momentum continued to build last month with sales of core brands including Chevrolet, Buick, GM and Cadillac gearing up more 15%.

By contrast, Toyota Canada said it sold 17,879 Toyota and Lexus vehicles in May, representing a more than 16% drop from May 2009.

The news came the same day Toyota executives appeared before a parliamentary committee for a follow-up session aimed at determining whether the Japanese automaker responded in a timely and appropriate manner to a range of safety concerns that prompted a chain of global recalls and negative press in recent months.

Fixes to Canadian Toyota vehicles that were part of the global recall are 88% complete, executives at the Japanese automaker said.

Honda and Acura also lost ground, selling 11,587 units and falling 26% behind the pace set last May. For the most part, Honda has refused to participate in aggressive incentive campaigns this month, such as 0% financing rates aimed at bolstering spring sales.

Nissan Canada sales were down just less than 2% with the carmaker moving 8,232 vehicles off dealer lots in May.

Kia Canada said May sales surpassed the company’s previous record, handing over 5,731 sets of keys to new owners, or a nearly 14% rise compared to May 2009.

Meanwhile Subaru Canada set a new record for the month with sales reaching 2,436, a jump of nearly 26%.

Hyundai Auto Canada Corp. said its sales rose 13% to 12,620 marking its best ever monthly sales total.

Mercedes-Benz Canada also said May was its best month for Canadian sales ever. Sales at the luxury automaker jumped more than 23% to 3,109 vehicles.

American Honda Motor Co., Inc., posted May sales of 117,173 vehicles, an increase of 19.1 percent, the company announced today. American Honda year-to-date sales reached 487,282, an increase of 14.1 percent versus last year, based on the daily selling rate*.

Honda Division posted May sales of 105,407, an increase of 18.6 percent versus May 2009, led by total car sales of 62,597, up 20.5 percent. The Accord was the top-selling Honda model with sales of 30,077, an increase of 33.1 percent compared to last year. The Civic posted sales of 28,458, an increase of 37.3 percent. Additional models with year-over-year increases included the CR-V, up 22.5 percent with sales of 17,820; the Pilot, up 32.7 percent with sales of 9,834; and the Ridgeline, up 26.8 percent to 1,853.

"May marks the seventh straight month of sales increases for Honda," said John Mendel, executive vice president of sales for American Honda. "This speaks to Honda's focus on long-term, steady growth as the market continues to regain momentum."

Acura Division recorded May sales of 11,766, an increase of 24.3 percent versus May 2009, led by total light truck sales of 5,882, up 70.0 percent. MDX was the top-selling model for Acura, with sales of 4,064, up 65.5 percent.

*The daily selling rate (DSR) is calculated with 26 days for May 2010 and 26 days for 2009. Year-to-date, the DSR is calculated with 126 days for 2010, versus 127 days for 2009. All percentages reflect DSR.

Audi sets third-straight monthly record with best May U.S. sales in company history
- 2010 May sales of 9,205 rose 22.7% above May 2009, marking the best May and the fifth-best sales for any month by Audi in the U.S. market
- The Audi Q5 crossover set another all-time monthly sales record
- May was best month of 2010 for the Audi A4, A4 Avant and Q7 models
HERNDON, Va., Jun 2, 2010 - Audi today maintained its 2010 momentum with record May sales in the U.S. For the month, sales of Audi cars and SUVs increased 22.7% compared to May 2009, marking the third consecutive time this year that Audi set a monthly sales record. May 2010 also ranks as the fifth-best month all-time in the U.S. market.

The May 2010 results were buoyed by the continued extraordinary public response to the Audi Q5, which established another all-time sales record in the month. May 2010 also stands as the best month of the year for Audi A4, A4 Avant and Q7 sales. Demand for the popular A5 coupe remained strong. The Audi A6 sedan also enjoyed a 51.9% increase in sales over this time last year and stands 34.2% ahead of the sales pace set over the same period last year.

Overall, Audi sold 9,205 luxury cars and SUVs in May 2010, topping the previous May record of 8,788 vehicles sold in May 2007.

Through the first five months of this year, Audi has enjoyed a 31.4% increase over 2009, with 39,839 vehicles sold.

“We continue to see Audi gaining momentum as American consumers are evaluating the luxury car choices that offer substance, performance and exceptional efficiency,”
said Johan de Nysschen, President, Audi of America. “This isn’t growth fueled by risky discounting strategies. It is growth based on providing the cars that are right for these times.”

Audi Q5 breaks another monthly record

Since its debut in 2009, the Q5 has become one of the brand’s most popular models. As more consumers recognize the safety, luxury and utility provided by the crossover, the Q5 has broken yet another monthly sales record, this time selling 2,030 vehicles in May – a 43.7% increase over this period in 2009.

Audi TDI clean diesel technology continues to gain consumer acceptance
In May 2010, the Audi Q7 TDI accounted for 33% of the Q7 line sales, maintaining the healthy share of that SUV line’s sales mix since it reached the U.S. market a year ago . Sales of the “2010 Green Car of the Year”, the Audi A3 TDI, accounted for 48% of all A3 sales for the month.

Audi A5 continues to break its own monthly sales records
For May, the overall A5 / S5 model line (including A5/S5 Cabriolet sales in the 2010 results) posted a month-to-month increase of 145.4%, thanks to record sales of 1,757 vehicles. For the year, the A5 line sales increased 133.6% from this point in 2009.

The declines seen in the May and year-to-date sales of the Audi A8 sedan reflect the anticipated sell down of that model as the brand prepares to launch a completely new 2011 model of its flagship luxury sedan toward the end of this year.

Audi Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) sales fell 8.4% in May from a year earlier largely due to constricted inventories.
