Due to the lack of microchips for the latest car parts, the colors not only make them end the creation temporarily. However, another consequence caused by the scarcity of this part has also caused the price of leftover cars to increase significantly.
As in Japan, as Carscoops reports, the price of Toyota’s leftover cars is facing a significant increase.
In that information, it is said that the Toyota Land Cruiser ZX 2022 is currently priced at USD 129.000 or equivalent to Rp. 1.9 billion at the end of July. That price is a solid 2 times the recommended retail price of the latest Land Cruiser in Japan.
It’s not just quality SUVs that are facing a spike in used car prices. However, for their quality MPV, the Alphard Executive Lounge S, also faces price escalation.
The car market for the rest of the Toyota Alphard is currently priced at close to USD 60,000 or equivalent to IDR 892 million. When you look at the new price, this form is pegged at USD 56,000 or equivalent to Rp. 832 million.
“There are several examples of local price spikes for very rare and well-known cars. However, I’ve never seen it happen in such a large form,” said Goodspeed’s Remaining Car Dealers Group Chairman, Yasuyuki Matsui, as quoted by Nikkei Asia.
Meanwhile, from the Carscoops page, it is reported that the Toyota-delivered novel is currently growing in a tumultuous manner in Japan. It’s understandable that the automaker currently has close to 1 million deliveries to fill in Japan alone, making up a third of its annual domestic production.
Therefore, the era of the latest car pivot becomes more than a year for some forms. Moreover, because there are so many, Toyota has also ended delivery in Japan in the form of the Land Cruiser, Alphard and Harrier.
