History of Toyota, MANUFACTURING SINCE 1961

"Since our establishment in 1961, Toyota has become as much a part of South African culture as the vibrant South Africans that drive our vehicles. With this in mind, we've shaped Toyota's culture around positive contributions to the country we love. It's how we strive to lead the way.
