Japanese automaker, Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC), has announced that it has reached a cumulative global production of 300 million cars as of the end September 2023, with the Corolla series emerging its best-selling model with a global production of 53.399 million cars.
The production milestone was achieved 88 years and two months after Toyota’s very first cars, the Model G1 truck, was produced by the Automotive Production Division of Toyoda Automatic Loom Works, Ltd.
This number includes domestic and international production, with 180.52 million cars produced in Toyota’s home country, Japan, while 119.6 million cars have been produced in some of its manufacturing plants abroad, including the South Africa and United States and China.
Commenting on the production milestone, Chairman and Master Driver Akio Toyoda said :
“Carmaking is something everyone does together. I think this number of 300 million stands as proof of all the hard work, every day, of our colleagues at Toyota, our suppliers and dealers, and all the many other stakeholders, as well as all those who came before us. This history did not just start when they built the first car.
“The founding members repeatedly tried and failed, continually building prototypes, and their efforts led to the Toyota of today. Toyota has faced danger time and again to this point. Each time, what has saved us are the customers who love Toyota cars.
“I think the number of cars tells the stories of our customers, and the customers who have chosen Toyota cars to be their partners through their own stories are what allow us to continue making cars to this day. I am grateful from the bottom of my heart. I love cars, too, and we will carry on making cars, one by one and with care, along with all our car-loving colleagues.”
