TOYOTA Motor Corporation

History, the brief version

Toyota Motor Corporation is an automotive manufacturer that was founded on August 28th, 1937.  In the beginning, the company had several crucial and timely "wins" that positioned them for a dominating performance in the mid 60's.  Due to the rapidly growing Japanese economy and the demand for an affordable solution for transportation, Toyota designed and developed the Toyota Corolla for sale to the average income consumer.  The Corolla has since gone on to claim the title of the "World's all-time, best-selling automobile".

Toyota, as a company, has earned many achievements and "firsts" in the automotive industry.  Their stellar track record has earned them status of being the largest company in Japan.  Toyota has also climbed to the ranks of being one of the largest automakers in history.  The company has earned a reputation as being a leader in the development and sale of hybrid/electric vehicles.
