Nearly eight years in the past immediately, Toyota bought its 40 millionth Corolla. Now, it’s celebrating the 50 millionth.
The 50 millionth automobile didn’t get a particular and fabulous sendoff, although, as essentially the most element Toyota is ready to present is that it was bought “this previous July.” Maybe you’ve gotten the 50 millionth Corolla, and also you don’t even realize it. Toyota left of us with the identical conundrum when it bought the 40 millionth Corolla, too.
It’s taken Toyota simply over 55 years of Corolla manufacturing to get thus far. Over these years, the Corolla has gone by 12 generations, nevertheless it’s largely retained its objective of being an inexpensive, small automobile all through all of them. The U.S. noticed its first Corollas in 1968 as a 1969 mannequin yr that began round $1,700, and the remainder is historical past.
We’ve compiled a gallery of Corollas all through the years you can flip by on the prime of this publish. It ends with the Corolla Cross, as Toyota finds one more physique model to make use of for the little automobile: a crossover. Will gross sales skyrocket even increased and develop ever-quicker with a crossover to bolster customary Corolla gross sales? It’s seemingly, given the present thirst for crossovers today.
Now, does anyone have any predictions for a way for much longer it’ll take Toyota to promote the following 50 million Corollas?
