Toyota is rooted in Japan’s once-booming textile industry as a producer of weaving looms.
The dedicated car company was formed in 1933 as a division of Toyoda Automatic Loom Works, with its first A1 passenger car and G1 truck produced in 1935.
Toyota’s first mass-production model, the Model AA, was launched in 1936, and was heavily influenced by 1930s Chevrolets – with some parts even interchangeable.
Since then, Toyota has forged itself into the world’s largest car company (as of 2021) with its legacy resting gently on ubiquitous models such as Corolla, Camry, Hilux, LandCruiser and RAV4.
Toyota’s Australian line-up currently includes Yaris and Corolla hatches, Camry and Corolla sedans, and the Yaris Cross, CH-R, RAV4, Kluger, Fortuner, Prado and LandCruiser 300 SUVs.
Current utes and vans offered include the hot-selling Toyota Hilux and LandCruiser 70 utes plus HiAce and Granvia vans. Toyota GR Yaris, GR Supra and the highly anticipated GR Corolla form Toyota’s multi-pronged sports car approach.
