Without any fanfare or fancy celebration, Toyota Motor Corporation marked a milestone last June as its worldwide cumulative vehicle production reportedly surpassed 200 million units.
The 200-millionth-unit milestone was reached at the end of June after the Japanese carmaker's cumulative production in its home market reached 145.21 million vehicles, while its overseas production hit 55.12 million units. The historic feat was achieved 76 years and 11 months after the production of the very first G1 truck in August 1935 at the Toyoda Automatic Loom Works' automotive department, which was later spun off into TMC.
"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 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."
If you're wondering what Toyota's most produced model is, it's the Corolla with more than 30 million already made.
