Officials remain confident despite Camry sales dip

By Dan Adkins Georgetown News-Graphic

Sales of Toyota Camrys fell by 7.56 percent last month, compared to the same period a year earlier, according to information provided by the company on its website.

The car, which consistently ranks among America's best-selling brands and frequently as the top brand, sold 31,428 units in April, a drop from more than 34,000 in April 2016, according to company news releases.

It marked the second-straight month of a decline in sales from the same month in the previous year -- a fact reflected across the automobile industry that sparked concern on Wall Street that an uninterrupted boom in car and truck sales since 2010 was ending.

But Jack Conner, director of the Georgetown/Scott County Chamber of Commerce, said the decline in sales for Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky's flagship product should not be cause for fears locally.

"You don't invest $1.3 billion in a facility if you're concerned" about its future viability, Conner said.

The last major redesign for the Camry was the seventh-generation 2012 model, with its eighth-generation model to be produced this fall.
