Headquartered in Aichi “Toyota City” Japan, Toyota employs approximately 365,000 people worldwide, and as of September 2018, was the sixth-largest company in the world by revenue. As of 2017, Toyota is the largest automotive manufacturer.
Toyota was the world’s first automobile manufacturer to produce more than 10 million vehicles per year which it has done since 2012, when it also reported the production of its 200-millionth vehicle. As of July 2014, Toyota was the largest listed company in Japan by market capitalization (worth more than twice as much as number 2-ranked SoftBank) and by revenue.
Additionally, Toyota is the world’s market leader in sales of hybrid electric vehicles, and one of the largest companies to encourage the mass-market adoption of hybrid vehicles across the globe. Toyota is also a market leader in hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles. Cumulative global sales of Toyota and Lexus hybrid passenger car models achieved the 10 million milestone in January 2017. Its Prius family is the world’s top selling hybrid nameplate with over 6 million units sold worldwide as of January 2017.
The company was founded by Kiichiro Toyoda in 1937, as a spinoff from his father’s company Toyota Industries to create automobiles. Three years earlier, in 1934, while still a department of Toyota Industries, it created its first product, the Type A engine, and its first passenger car in 1936, the Toyota AA.
Toyota Motor Corporation produces vehicles under five brands, including the Toyota brand, Hino, Lexus, Ranz, and Daihatsu. It also holds a 16.66% stake in Subaru Corporation, a 5.9% stake in Isuzu, a 5.5% stake in Mazda, as well as joint-ventures with two in China (GAC Toyota and Sichuan FAW Toyota Motor), one in India (Toyota Kirloskar), one in the Czech Republic (TPCA), along with several “nonautomotive” companies. TMC is part of the Toyota Group, one of the largest conglomerates in Japan. Toyota is listed on the London Stock Exchange, New York Stock Exchange and Tokyo Stock Exchange.
Safety & Security
Toyota vehicles make the IIHS Top Safety list regularly. The top safety winner is the 2019 Corolla hatchback. In order to be a top safety pick, a vehicle must earn good ratings in the driver-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests, as well as an advanced or superior rating for front crash prevention and an acceptable or good headlight rating. Toyotas also have Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection. This integrated camera and radar system is designed to help reduce the likelihood of colliding with a preceding car or pedestrian. The cars also feature Lane Departure Alert, Automatic High Beams, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Road Sign Assist, Lane Tracing Assist, and more. All of these details can help keep insurance rates down, so be sure to tell your insurance agent what exact make and model Toyota you are insuring, so that they may help get you the best rate possible.
Subarus are one of the top selling vehicles in the United States, and for the most part, the cars are relatively affordable. For a number of reasons, Subaru insurance premiums can run a little higher than other vehicles. For example, rates can start as low as $1,400 for the Subaru Ascent and go as high as $1,800 for the Impreza. Factors that affect price include make, model, driving record, etc.
Toyota Premiums encompass a wide ranges of prices, depending on make, model and year of vehicle, as well as personal driving record and other factors. Generally, annual insurance rates can start as low as $1,200 for a 2017 Toyota Corolla, but a 2019 Corolla will start closer to $1,500 per year for coverage. A 2019 Camry can start at $2,000 annually and a Prius can easily run you around $2,200 annually. Be sure to check with your insurance agent or contact a United Agencies representative for assistance. Our professionals are very experienced and are happy to be of service.
Unfortunately, some Toyota models have a high theft rate, specifically the Camry and the Corolla. Surprisingly, the targeted vehicles tend to be older models, so if you are buying a new car this year, you’re less likely to be a victim. Most Toyota thieves are looking for vehicles from 2017 or older. Don’t let the theft issue scare you from buying the car you want.
The pros of Toyota ownership definitely outweigh any issues a driver might. Ask a United Agencies representative for tips and advice on keeping your car safe while keep your cost down.
