Toyota has been voted Carmaker of the Year at the 2021 MotorTrader Industry Awards which took place in London this week.

The award recognises the range of products and services available from Toyota in the UK and the strength of the relationship Toyota has with its retail partners.

Accepting the award on behalf of Toyota (GB) were Mark Roden, Operations Director, and Robin Giles, Customer Services Director. Roden said: “This achievement is testament to our incredible people working across all the different areas of service we provide under what we call the “One Toyota” umbrella. It recognises the brilliant progress our teams are making not only at Toyota (GB) but also our manufacturing plants in Derby and North Wales, Toyota Financial Services, Toyota Insurance Services, Kinto, and of course the hard work of our retailer network.”

John Kirwan, Editor MotorTrader, said: “Toyota was the clear winner this year for the strength of its range, the profitability of the franchise, its strong support for its dealer network in the pandemic and for innovation in aftersales.”
