Toyota is (and has been for most of the last decade at least) the largest car manufacturer in the world. Headquartered in Toyota, Aichi, Japan, the enormous multinational corporation employs over 335,000 people worldwide and in July 2012 reported the manufacture of its 200 millionth vehicle – simply astonishing. IN 2014 it was listed as the 11th largest company in the world, not just car maker, but all companies – this if nothing else gives an idea of the huge scale of Toyota.
Anyway, back to the cars – Toyota was founded in 1937, and like Suzuki began by manufacturing weaving looms. Its first cars were the A1 and the G1, both created in 1935 – their success meant that Toyota was born as an independent company two years later.
In 1947, Toyota turned their attention to making small cars and commercials vehicles (light trucks) for the domestic Japanese market. The Toyopets as they were commonly known built the foundations for Toyota to expand into a national player to be taken seriously.
In the 1960’s the United States, in an effort to preserve their own manufacturing brands, placed import taxes on certain vehicle types – notably the ‘chicken tax’ on small trucks that Toyota was selling globally with resounding success – the 25% levy meant that home-grown alternatives were often better on price, but it still didn’t deter all buyers. Toyota retained a smaller presence in the US thanks to buyers looking for extended reliability from the higher quality engineering that Toyota offered. They would not however regain the market share they had until they built two manufacturing plants inside the United States in the early 1980’s.
The 1980’s were a boom period for Toyota, around the world but particularly in the US where the oil crisis of the 70’s saw consumers rushing to buy smaller, lighter, more efficient cars. Toyota struck deals with American firms, including GM, to purchase redundant or closed factories, and began ramping up the production of its own vehicles. Off the back of this success Toyota continued to participate in a wide range of motorsports and also launch additional brands – with Lexus being launched in 1989. Their luxury division, Lexus is firmly aimed at competing with the big three German luxury brands of Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz. Its name makes it clear where the target audience lay too, with the rumoured reasoning behind the name meaning “Luxury EXport for the US market”
Throughout the 1990s Toyota further cemented their reputation for reliability, quality and long term value in global markets. Toyota established a manufacturing plant in the UK following the success of the models here.
In the 2000s natural disasters struck plants in Thailand and the Philippines, slowing production in those regions, however Toyota overtook General Motors as the world’s leading (most units produced) manufacturer in 2008 – it has not lost this title yet although Volkswagen is now the main challenger and sales have been very close between eh two giants.
In terms of motorsport, Toyota has been a voracious brand in competing in many forms of motorsport around the world – from Le Mans 24 hours (yet to win), the World Rally Championship (4 times winner) to Formula One (yet to win) Toyota spreads their knowledge and expertise far and wide.
With a model range going from the tiny Aygo to the colossal Land Cruiser (which has stolen market share from Range Rover all over the world) Toyota has a car for just about every sector of the market. Their dominance looks set to continue as does their place at the very forefront of technology – with $1 billion dollars being invested into artificial intelligence and robotics in the next 5 years.
Finally, we answer the difficult pub quiz question – What is the best-selling car of all time? Model T Ford? Nope – that’s sold 16.5 million units. The Volkswagen Beetle then? Nope – 21,529,464 to be precise… It is actually the Toyota Corolla – with over 40,000,000 having being sold – or almost 1 in 5 of every Toyotas ever built! Forty Million! The Mini (Morris) holds the record in the UK, just out of interest, at 5,505,874 – which for a country with less than 1% of the global population is still impressive!
