Toyota C-HR May Tip Their U.S. Sales Ratio

Toyota is hoping that the new C-HR crossover will tip their car-truck sales ratio from its current 50-50 split to 60-40 in the light truck segment’s favor.

Light truck is a US classification used for trucks or vehicles based on trucks with a payload capacity less than 4,000 pounds (1,815 kg). The C-HR could fall under this segment because it rides on Toyota’s New Global Architecture (TNGA).

Crossover sales are on the rise and this year to date saw an increase of 6.6%, not including November. The numbers may continue to rise and Toyota needs to take advantage of the segment’s popularity, especially since crossovers appeals to a wide range of customers; a first time buyer’s entry into the world of car ownership, those looking to downsize, and even those who are moving up from small cars.

“We'll launch this beautiful C-HR and will be in a much better position to meet customer demand on the sport-utility side of things,” said Bill Fay, Toyota General Manager. "It's not always that Toyota has a product that will stand out in the market, but we're optimistic based on the feedback we've gotten so far.”

Making its US debut earlier this month at the LA Auto Show, the new C-HR will be going up against the like of Chevy Trax, Nissan Juke, Honda HR-V and Mazda CX-3. Hopefully, there won’t be any C-HR shortages once it goes on sale and Fay has even confirmed to Automotive News that Toyota shouldn’t struggle to shift production from sedans to light trucks.

I don't doubt that the C-HR will be able to skew sales in the 60-40 favor. It's a gorgeous cross-over and definitely one of the nicest vehicles in their lineup in general. Crossovers are definitely doing well at this point in the industry, the only thing that I can think of that'll make it even better is offering the hybrid variant down here in North America.

I'm still confused over this. How is the C-HR a light truck? As far as I know, Toyota’s New Global Architecture has not been used in a light truck as far as I know adn the c-HR isn't really based off of a truck.
