5 Millionth Toyota Corolla rolls off production line

,

Not many know that Toyota has been producing Corolla’s in North America for a long time and in fact, on Tuesday, August 19 the Corolla passed an important milestone. That was the day the 5 millionth Corolla rolled off a North American production line.

Originally launched in 1966, the Toyota Corolla began its American journey in 1968 and instantly became a favorite of drivers looking for value, fuel efficiency, comfort and utility. The demand was such that when the assembly of Corolla began at New United Motor Manufacturing, Inc. (NUMMI) in Fremont, California in 1986, and, two years later, commenced production at Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada in Cambridge, Ontario. And now millions of Corollas are manufactured in North America.

So this is the tip of Toyota hat not only to those canny drivers who have chosen Corolla, but also to those team members who have helped assemble Corollas here in North America over the years. To you all we say, “Well done.”
