The Wide Success of the Toyota Corolla
The Corolla was introduced in 1966 in Takaoka, Japan where they dedicated a new factory just to the one car. They did not know how successful it would be, however, as it was an instant hit. The Corolla came to the United States in 1969 and by 1970 worldwide sales had soared over one million. In 1997 it made the all-time bestseller list. As of 2015, there had been 43.1 million sales of the Corolla, and it still climbs at an annual rate of about 1.5 million. This says it all about why a Corolla is something worth investing in.
