Toyota New Zealand (TNZ) has made the decision to discontinue sales of new Daihatsu vehicles by the end of the year.
TNZ General Manager of Sales and Operations Steve Prangnell says the company is regretfully unable to secure Daihatsu products that comply with future regulatory standards for New Zealand, but the decision will not disadvantage any customers who already own Daihatsu vehicles.
"We want to assure customers that we will honour our commitment to Daihatsu owners in New Zealand and they need not worry about ongoing support. Toyota dealers will continue to supply parts and provide comprehensive service support for those vehicles," Mr Prangnell says.
TNZ will send letters to Daihatsu owners advising them of the announcement and their commitment to ongoing parts and service support. Owners can also obtain information through the TNZ website onwww.toyota.co.nz or can call 0800 869 682.
Toyota New Zealand took over the Daihatsu business in the New Zealand market in 2002.
