Toyota Passes 200 Million Production Unit

Toyota achieves a very significant new milestone in production as their cumulative production passes 200 million mark.

With a number like this, Toyota is basically running the world! This milestone took 76 years and 11 months to reach, and began with production of the Model G1 truck in August 1935 at Toyoda Automatic Loom Works, Ltd.’s1 Automotive Department, which was spun off and later became TMC.  As of the end of June, cumulative production in Japan2 totaled 145.21 million vehicles and overseas production totaled 55.12 million vehicles.

The most-produced model among Toyota-brand vehicles is the “Corolla”, of which the 11th generation was launched in Japan on May 11.  Cumulative worldwide Corolla production totaled 39.08 million units as of the end of June. Funny, because it is the most boring car they make as well.



Marking the achievement, TMC President Akio Toyoda said: “I wish to express my heartfelt appreciation to our customers the world over who made it possible for us to reach this milestone.  I also have the most profound respect and gratitude for the efforts of all persons who were involved in developing, manufacturing, and marketing Toyota and Lexus vehicles over the years.  We are determined to make our cars even better, to continue to give our customers the best possible product.  This is the common goal of our 300,000 Toyota staff members worldwide.”
