Toyota to break down walls of dealerships in Japan

All models will be sold at any outlet in shake-up of 60-year-old strategy

Each of Toyota's dealership chains handles cars for a different segment of the market.

NAGOYA, Japan -- Toyota Motor will revamp its decades-old practice of selling cars in Japan through multiple dealership chains catering to different segments of the market, selling all models at any outlet.

By overhauling its sales strategy set in place for more than 60 years, the automaker aims to cope with decreasing car ownership and the rise of vehicle-sharing as Japan's auto market shrinks 30% from peak levels.
