Japanese car giants have announced this new and interesting direct sales channel in Latin American countries. This scheme focuses on customers in the agricultural sector. The rest of the consumers will sell Toyota cars in the traditional way.

Toyota claims that the agribusiness division currently accounts for 16% of direct sales in Brazil. This new program is expected to help it grow further.

This scheme, called “Toyota Barter,” allows customers to pay for corn and soybeans in exchange for a new car. Consumers have to pay the price of the vehicle by the weight of corn or soybeans. The price of corn and soybeans should be the same as the price of the vehicle.

Toyota models such as Hilux pickup trucks, Corolla Cross SUVs and SW4SVs can be purchased with this scheme. SW4 is basically Toyota Fortuner Available in India.

However, there is a problem. Toyota ensures that consumers are certified for rural production and that their produce is from sustainable plantations and is of high quality.

Toyota Barter is not a brand new program for Japanese car brands. It was first introduced in 2019 as a pilot project. Automakers have now officially announced this unique way of selling. This program is currently available in some Brazilian states. These include Bahia, Goias, Matt Grosso, Minas Gerais, Piauí and Tocantins. Automakers are planning to expand their services nationwide.
