2020 is a special period of both opportunities and challenges for the domestic and global automotive industry. After experiencing a sharp decline in the automotive industry at the beginning of the year, as the domestic COVID-19 situation eases, the automotive consumer market is showing a strong momentum of recovery. With the core competitive advantages and good reputation of "high-value" and "individualized" products, GAC Toyota seized the opportunity of recovery and achieved year-on-year sales growth for several consecutive months. With the support of strong product strength and the steady launch of new models, GAC Toyota also has a good start in the first two months of the second half of this year, and its future growth potential is also expected.
