Toyota celebrates major production milestone, surpassing 200 million units

Last week on July 24, 2012, Toyota Motor Corporation celebrated producing their 200 millionth car ever. After 76 years and 11 months in business, beginning with the automaker’s first ever vehicle in 1935, Toyota surpassed the magic number.

“I wish to express my heartfelt appreciation to our customers the world over who made it possible for us to reach this milestone,” said TMC’s president, Akio Toyoda. “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.”

The most-produced model for Toyota is quite obviously the Corolla, which has been the automaker’s top selling product for decades and became the best selling nameplate in the world, surpassing the Volkswagen Beetle in 1997. And ever since the Corolla was created, about 39 million examples over eleven generations have been sold to this day and is still growing.
