Toyota Australia axes TRD brand

Toyota Australia has pulled the plug on its TRD performance brand, citing the current global financial crisis as the determining factor. Just 888 TRD vehicles have been delivered since the brand was established in Australia, with the last model set to roll off the production line on March 31, 2009. The TRD Aurion accounted for 537 of this total since it was first launched 16 months ago, while the TRD HiLux sold 351 units in a much shorter space of time.
