Toyota Corolla has surpassed the 40 million mark in global sales. The nameplate achieved the landmark number over the course of forty seven years and eleven generations.
The company produces more than 1.1 million Corollas every year today from U.S. to China and South Africa to Turkey and Venezuela.
Toyota presented the 11th generation model Corolla, marking the sales success and the launch of the new model with a campaign dubbed "Style Never Goes out Of Style", focusing on the pop culture that spanned five decades.
“American’s love affair with the Corolla began in 1968 and the passion is still burning,” commented Jack Hollis, Toyota vice president of Marketing. “Always the poster-child for Toyota's legendary quality, the Corolla is all-new for 2014 with expressive styling, a premium interior, and terrific driving dynamics. It's built for the way we live today and the places we go. From urban chic to family road trip, at 40 million we’re just getting started!”
