At our plant in Georgetown, Kentucky, cafeteria waste is composted on-site, then used in a greenhouse to grow produce for families in need. Learn more about Toyota's waste minimization process by watching our feature video. Toyota USA
In 1957, when Toyota first came to America, Elvis was king of rock n' roll, big cars with tailfins were "in" and postage stamps were just 3 cents. After a poor start with a car called the "Toyopet," Toyota came back strong in 1965 with the popular 90-horsepower Corona sedan.
Then there was the Corolla, Camry, Toyota trucks, the Lexus luxury brand, Scion, and the world's first gas/electric hybrid Prius...a car we built for the 21st century. Along the way, we've learned a lot and enjoyed the support of American consumers who have embraced the quality, dependability and reliability of our vehicles.
Today, Toyota is one of the top-selling brands in America and we are committed to continuous improvement in everything we do, along with breakthrough products for the future. We're proud to share some highlights of our 50 years of progress and history here.
About Toyota: We’re in the business of making great cars and trucks. But we also work every day to apply and share our know-how in ways that benefit people, the community and our planet in order to build a better tomorrow. We’ve been a part of life in America for over 50 years. And while we’re passionate about making great cars and trucks, our story is about much more than our vehicles.
