Toyota Motor Corporation was founded in September 1933 as a division of Toyoda Automatic Weaving Factory cars. The company's car division then separated on August 27, 1937 to create the Toyota Motor Corporation as at present.
Departing from the textile industry, a company that manufactures cars every 50 minutes it was used more as mention the Toyota naming better than using the family name of its founder, Toyoda. Here are some interesting milestone way Toyota.

Toyota is the world's largest car manufacturer in unit sales and net sales. Japan's largest manufacturer produces 8 to 8.5 million vehicles worldwide each year.
Compared with other automotive industries that use the trademark name of its founder as such by Soichiro Honda founded Honda, Daimler-Benz (Gottlieb Daimler and Karl Benz), Ford (Henry Ford), Toyoda name is not used as a brand. Because the set of simple ideas and visions that time, the mention of Toyoda less pleasant and not so familiarly known spoofed into a Toyota.

Sakichi Toyoda was born in February 1867 in Shizuoka, Japan. This man is known as the inventor since I was a teenager. Toyoda devoted his life to studying and developing the textile assembly. In the age of 30 years completed the Toyoda loom. It then set up her Toyota assembly precursor, the Toyoda Automatic Loom Works, Ltd.. in November 1926.

Here the automatic textile machinery patent was later sold to Platt Brothers & Co., Ltd.. of England, United Kingdom.

Four years is enough to wait for delivery of automotive companies own and break away from their textile industry. Then in 1937 they inaugurated the automotive division and the name Toyota, Toyoda is not like the name of the textile industry. Intake Toyota name in Japanese characters are represented in 8, and eight is a lucky number for Japanese society. Another reason is considered reasonable is the automotive industry is a lifestyle business and even the mention of a name (and what it sounds like), a side that is so important. Because Toyoda's name was considered too rigid in the dynamic business that is converted into a Toyota that feels better. No doubt, 1937 was an important era of the birth of Toyota Motor Co., Ltd.. embryo of giant Toyota Motor Corp. (TMC) today.

Kiichiro Toyoda spirit of innovation has never dimmed. Toyota later developed into a formidable producer of vehicles. In the era of the 1940s, Toyota is busy developing the company's capital includes inserting the bourses in Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya.

Inspired by Samurai Heikuro figures are climbing Mount Atago Magaki on horseback in 1643, Taira drove his Toyota BJ to Fudo temple in Okasaki city. It once used as a promotional car toughness of all these fields. Not long ago, Toyota Land Cruiser began to rival the dominance of the Willys Jeep. Even with the subsequent models, the Toyota Land Cruiser can be accepted in the market when it is difficult to penetrate the North America. Through this model, Toyota entered the markets in various parts of the world, including in Indonesia, known as the Toyota Land Cruiser Hardtop FJ40/45. In Africa, the models of Toyota Land Cruiser Technical alias is used as an armed jeeps equipped with light machine guns, heavy weapons, or even without starting basoka behind (Recoilless bazooka) and deployed during armed conflicts with the very strong performance.

Toyota is not only known through the Toyota Land Cruiser. They also developed a model that became the world's favorite, a small sedan. Through the Toyota Corolla which debuted in 1966, this early generation sedan wearing tiny rear drive sedan bongsor change the order of the popular small sedan was headed toward a compact, economical and compact. Entering 1975, the Corolla into the third generation and has sold over 5 million units. The amazing thing is still strong today. Corolla engine is then used in Indonesia as an engine for a versatile commercial vehicle family, the first generation Toyota Kijang is known as the Crocodile Deer.

More consistent product mengglobalnya Toyota, they have not realized the logo graphic. Even in Indonesia found the Toyota-branded vehicles like the Toyota Kijang with TOYOTA logo on the grille on the bonnet (nose) car.

The third circle is at once around the circle before the T-shaped ellipse as evidence and influence to keep him.
