History Of Toyota Car Company

Toyota Motor Corporation was founded in September 1933 as a division of Automatic Weaving Factory Toyota cars. Division of company cars are then separated on August 27, 1937 to create the Toyota Motor Corporation is today.

Departure from the textile industry, Toyota is plugging itself as one of the leading car manufacturer which is across the globe. Brands that produce a car every six seconds using the naming Toyota proved more because penyebutannya better than using the family name of its founder, Toyoda. Here are some exciting milestone in Toyota's journey.

Toyota is the third largest automobile manufacturer in the world in unit sales and net sales. Japan's largest manufacturers produced 5.5 million cars worldwide. If calculated, this figure is equivalent to producing one unit of a car in six seconds.

Toyota was founded by Sakichi Toyoda, who started off from a textile industry (Marimutu Sinivasan, the founder of Texmaco, a large textile entrepreneurs in Indonesia, tried to imitate it by developing branded automotive sector

Compared with other automotive industries that use the name of its founder as a trademark, such as Honda, founded by Soichiro Honda, Daimler-Benz (Gottlieb Daimler and Karl Benz), Ford (Henry Ford), Toyoda name not be used as a trademark. Since departing from simple ideas and vision that time, Toyoda mention less pleasant to hear and not so familiarly known diplesetkan into the Toyota.

Sakichi Toyoda was born in February 1867 in Shizuoka, Japan. This man is known as the inventor since I was a teenager. Toyoda devoted his life to studying and developing the textile assembly. In the age of 30 years completed the Toyoda loom. It then drove him to establish the forerunner to the Toyota assembly line, ie, Toyoda Automatic Loom Works, Ltd.. in November 1926.

Here patents automatic textile machinery and then sold to Platt Brothers & Co., Ltd.. from England, United Kingdom. Proceeds from sales of this patent, was made the capital development of the automotive division. Starting in 1933, when Toyoda build automotive division, which was then a lot of teams are controlled by his son Kiichiro Toyoda, endlessly producing leading innovations in the era. Engine Type A successfully completed in 1934. A year later the first prototype of this machine grafted their passenger cars, A1. Toyoda automotive division also produces trucks G1 model.

In 1936 they launched their first passenger car, Toyoda AA (then still using the name Toyoda). This model was developed from the prototype model A1 and the body and machine equipped A. This vehicle is from the beginning expected to be a people's car. Product concepts that Toyota continues to hold today.

Four-year wait for delivery is enough automotive companies own and break away from their textile industry. Then in 1937 they inaugurated the automotive division and take the name of Toyota, rather than Toyoda as a textile industry. Toyota making a name in Japanese characters are represented in eight, and eight is a lucky number for Japanese society. Another reason that makes sense is considered automotive industry is a business lifestyle and even the mention of a name (and what sounds like), a side which is so important. Because the name was considered too rigid Toyoda in a dynamic business that turned into the Toyota were deemed better. No doubt, the year 1937 represents an important era of the birth of the Toyota Motor Co., Ltd.. the embryo of a giant Toyota Motor Corp. (TMC) today.

Kiichiro Toyoda's spirit of innovation has never dimmed. Toyota later developed into producing powerful vehicles. In the era of the 1940s, Toyota is busy developing the company's capitalization, including entering trading floor in Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya.

After World War II era, the 1950s is proof of Toyota's all-purpose vehicle producer sebgai tough. At the time Jeep vehicles are familiar in Japan. Inspired by this car, the Toyota Land Cruiser and then develop a prototype that came out in 1950. A year later officially launched early model Land Cruiser BJ model ie.

Buln July of that year, a test driver Ichiro Taira end the test with remarkable results. Heikuro Samurai figures inspired by the climb of Mount Atago Magaki on horseback in 1643, Taira drove his Toyota BJ to the Fudo temple in the town of Okasaki. This was once used as a promotional car all-terrain toughness is. Not long ago, Toyota Land Cruiser Jeep Willys began to emulate domination. Even with the subsequent models, the Toyota Land Cruiser is acceptable in a market that was then difficult to penetrate the North America. Through this model, Toyota has entered the markets in various parts of the world, including in Indonesia, known as the Toyota Land Cruiser Hardtop FJ40/45. In Africa, the models of Toyota Land Cruiser was used as an alias Technical armed jeeps equipped with light machine guns, heavy guns or bazookas and even without starting over (Recoilless bazooka) and baled during armed conflicts with the very strong performance.

Toyota is not only known through the Toyota Land Cruiser. They also developed the world's favorite model, a small sedan. Through the Corolla made its debut in 1966, this early generation small sedan wearing mover behind the change order bongsor popular sedan when it headed toward the small sedan in a compact, economical and compact. Entering the year 1975, included in third-generation Corolla, and sold more than 5 million units. The amazing thing is still strong today. Corolla engine is then used in Indonesia as an engine for a versatile family of commercial vehicles, Toyota Kijang early generations known as Kijang Buaya.

Toyota product line mengglobalnya increasingly, they have not realized the logo graphic. Even in Indonesia found the Toyota branded vehicles like Toyota Kijang with Toyota logo on the grill on the bonnet (nose) car. In 1989 Toyota has finally decided to make two circles oval (ellipse), which produce the letters T and the third ellipse will indicate the spirit of understanding in the design. The third circle was once the second round the previous ellipse-shaped circle T and keep it as evidence of influence around him.
