A look at Toyota's corporate history

Toyota Motor Co. turned 77 years old today. The company's legacy and brand equity is built on a history of progressive engineering, expansionist production goals and a product line that has adapted to meet changing market demands and regulatory requirements. Toyota has done this despite a 62.7 drop in car production that was related to the 2011 Tsunami in Japan. The company has also overcome costly vehicle recalls of 11 million automobiles in 2009 and 2010.
This infographic celebrates the 77 years of this automotive giant and charts some of its history and background.
