Toyota Automobiles company began its life as a division of Toyoda
Automatic Loom Works in 1933 under the leadership of Kiichiro
Toyoda. Its first passenger vehicle was released in 1935 and by
1940, ever devoted to innovation and development, established the
Toyota Science Centre. WWII put a serious strain on the company and
it was put into the service of the military, Interestingly enough,
after the war, Toyota made most out
of the wrecked and worn-out trucks to make recycled vehicles.
In 1947, two years after the war had ended Toyota developed a
prototype for a compact car, a segment that the American automakers
had largely ignored. In 1949, Toyota released its first compact car
in Japan despite the fact that the Japanese economy was still in bad
shape with rising
costs and runaway inflation. During this time it produced $3.5 million
in vehicles but
could sell only $2.5 million of its inventory. Facing huge loses,
the board began thinking about dissolving the company. Luckily, after many
negotiations the company decided to decrease its workforce by 2000
from a total of 8000. Under new management, the company began
investing in the latest technology which led to it improving its
efficiency in production immediately.
In 1951 Toyota
first introduced the now world-famous Land Cruiser model. AT the
time, Toyota had returned to producing nearly 500 cars per month.
Its renewed focus on quality and innovation, also helped to keep production costs
incredibly low. As a result of the success of the Land Cruiser and
its commitment to quality in design and processes, Toyota slowly
became the automaker par excellence we know today.
In 1980 Toyota went cinched the title of the second highest car producer in the world behind General
Motors which it maintained for close to 30 years. In 1984 Toyota
joined hands with General Motors to begin a joint venture called New
United Motor Manufacturing, Inc. (NUMMI). This enabled Toyota to
start its production in the U.S. By 1991, Toyota had
sold more than one million cars and trucks in the American market.
It also held more than 40% of the Japanese car industry. Soon Toyota
began establishing itself in new markets like Latin America and
Southeast Asia. Toyota started off as a brand that specialized in
economy cars but soon went on to establish a luxury car brand in
1989 called Lexus which would go on to become wildly successful,
even outselling established brands like BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar
Toyotaâ€™s research center has been the
back bone of their new innovations and improvements almost since the
beginning. Toyota currently has production facilities in most major countries like
Russia, Turkey, Thailand, France, Canada, etc. In October 1997,
Toyota came up with the idea of releasing a car which combined a gas
engine and electric motor that was able to reduce carbon dioxide
emissions by half. Soon the demand for this eco-friendly vehicle
exceeded the production capacity that Toyota could perform.
In 2000 for the first time Toyotaâ€™s production exceeded 5 million
units worldwide. Toyotaâ€™s bestselling car has been the Toyota
Corolla which was released in 1966. As of 2013, more than 40 million
Toyota Corollaâ€™s have been sold worldwide. As of 2012, Toyotaâ€™s
production output is in excess of 9,900,000 and has yearly revenues
of $225 billion. In 2013 Toyota overtook General Motors in
the number of sales after being in second place for a number of
years. From persevering for two decades before it established
itself, Toyota has come a long way to become the most respected
automobile company in the world.
