The Model AA (top), our first production car, followed and the Toyota Motor Company was born soon after – but it took until 1997 for the firm to build and sell its first 100 million cars and trucks.

The last 15 years prove how successful Toyota has been, with the latest 100 million units being produced in record time.

Marking the achievement, TMC President Akio Toyoda said: “I wish to express my heartfelt appreciation to our customers the world over who made it possible for us to reach this milestone.

“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.”
