Any car passionate knows that no car maker in the world has ever produced more than 10 million units within an year. Nevertheless, Toyota is about to break this worldwide record.
These days, Toyota announced it has just raised the bar by predicting a number of 10.1 million vehicles in 2013, after it had initially predicted a number of 9.94 million units, for both local and abroad markets.
Leaving aside the premiere in the history of the auto industry, we cannot overlook the fact that Toyota’s comeback is even more admirable, given the fact that the company went through plenty of difficult experiences for the past few years, with natural disasters that affected its native country, the economical deficiencies and the sudden growth of the yen.
The target was modified right after the statistics for the first half of 2013 were brought to light. And if you have looked into last year’s results registered by Toyota, you will discover that the car maker assembled no less than 9.91 million units throughout the world.
One of the first and most important results of this fruitful activity would be the growth of Toyota’s annual profit with 74%, up to 17 billion dollars. Under the spotlights should be the latest Corolla generation, only that Volkswagen group is threatening to come back from behind.
