UMW Toyota Motor Had Encouraging Sales In April, Will Continue Offering Value

We are now nearly in the middle of 2022, and thus far, UMW Toyota Motor is seeing a positive trend in its sales numbers. For the month of April, the company recorded sales of 6,868 Toyota vehicles and 78 Lexus vehicles. In terms of its sales performance year-to-date, the company had sold a total of 29,393 vehicles (both Toyota and Lexus combined) in the first 4 months of 2022. This is a 11% year-on-year increase over the first 4 months of 2021.

The increase in sales can be attributed not only the buyers taking advantage of savings from the sales tax exemption period which is expected to end soon, but also its recent ‘Bersama Lebih Makna’ Raya promotions, which offered benefits worth RM4,000 for such models as the Vios and Yaris.

New Orbea Urrun blends long battery life with a power-packed motor

Orbea has launched the Urrun, a new hardtail electric mountain bike, designed for longer escapades in the saddle. It sits alongside the Rise full-suspension platform, which comprises a carbon model and the aluminium Rise H.

The Urrun features a hydroformed aluminium frame with 120mm of front suspension travel. The bikes are equipped with a Shimano EP8-RS (Rider Synergy) motor, which Orbea developed in collaboration with Shimano. This is based on a standard EP8 motor that has been re-tuned to offer less torque, and also featured on the Rise H.

The Urrun is available immediately and there will be two models in the range, the Urrun 10 and 30.

The Urrun 30 retails for £3,499 / €3,799 / $4,299 / AU$7,499. This rises to £4,299 / €4,799 / $5,499 / AU$8,799 for the Urrun 10.
