Car counters, pay attention: Sometime in June (nobody really knows when and where), Toyota made its 200 millionth car.
Starting with the production of the Model G1 truck in August 1935, it took them 76 years and 11 months to reach that milestone. At the end of June, cumulative production in Japan reached 145.21 million vehicles, overseas production reached 55.12 million vehicles – and it’s already 330,000 ahead of the 200 million. This according to a statement by Toyota.
Toyota’s and arguably the world’s most made car is the Corolla with 39.08 million units officially produced as of the end of June 2012.
Toyota had been the world’s largest automaker, lost the title to GM in 2011, and could regain it this year.
