Toyota celebrates 60 years of business in USA
Toyota Motor North America has organized a special ceremony to celebrate the 60th anniversary of its activities in America.
It was October 31, 1957, when the Japanese carmaker inaugurated its first vehicle distribution company in the country, in Hollywood, California.
Since then, the Group has made tremendous progress in the States with as major milestones the launch of the Corolla world car in 1968, the Camry in 1983 and the first Lexus (the LS400) in 1989.
Production operations began in the 1980s thanks to the joint venture Nummi with General Motors, followed in 1986 by the opening of the Kentucky factory.
