 Toyota Motor Company has done it again! They have become the best-selling car company in the world for the fourth year in a row. In 2023, they sold a whopping 11.2 million cars, which is the highest number ever achieved by the Japanese company. That's like selling a car to every person in New York City, Los Angeles, and Chicago combined!

Global Success

Toyota's success is not limited to Japan. They have been making waves all around the world. Last year, their global sales increased by 7.2%. This includes not only cars made by Toyota but also those made by Hino Motors and Daihatsu. They sold a staggering 8.9 million vehicles overseas, which is more than the population of New Zealand!

Competition from Volkswagen

While Toyota is on top, let's not forget about their competitors. Volkswagen Group, a German car company, came in second place. They had a great year too, with a 12% increase in deliveries. They sold 9.2 million cars, which is like selling a car to every person in Sweden!

Toyota's Impressive Lineup

What makes Toyota so popular? Well, their cars are loved by people all over the world. In 2023, they sold a record-breaking 10.3 million original Toyota vehicles. This includes cars with the Toyota name and those with the luxurious Lexus brand. That's like having a Toyota car for every person in Australia!

Going Green

Toyota is not just about selling cars; they also care about the environment. Did you know that about one-third of the cars they sold were hybrid cars? These cars run on both gasoline and electricity, which helps reduce pollution. However, electric cars that run on batteries make up less than 1% of their sales. Toyota is working hard to make more eco-friendly cars in the future.

Toyota's Mission

Toyota has a clear mission. They don't just want to sell the most cars; they want to prioritize safety and quality. In their statement, they said, "Achieving the highest sales is not our goal. We hope to continue manufacturing cars while placing safety and quality as our top priorities." So, you can trust that when you buy a Toyota, you're getting a safe and high-quality car.
