While many automakers are seeing a dip in sales, Toyota goes more into the green:

"Confidential preliminary figures show Toyota increased sales in March by 1.6 per cent compared to the same month the prior year, while most other Top 10 brands dropped by between 30 and 40 per cent in the industry's 24th month in a row of decline."
“We had in fact the strongest February order intake since 2008 that really put Toyota in a strong position going into March. The first part of the month we reported very strong sales and enquiry.”

"However, Mr Hanley added: “Since March … there has been a significant impact on enquiry. We are continuing to deliver (new cars) to essential services like government, emergency workers, mining, construction, tradies, all of which we believe will continue to benefit the economy."

Those sales figures for Toyota Australia. Toyota North America hasn't been as lucky but still manageable:
