TMC Worldwide Cumulative Vehicle Production Passes 200 Million Mark

Toyota City, Japan, July 24, 2012-Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC)
announces that in June its worldwide cumulative vehicle production
surpassed 200 million units.

This milestone took 76 years and 11 months to reach, and began with
production of the Model G1 truck in August 1935 at Toyoda Automatic
Loom Works, Ltd.'s (1) Automotive Department, which was spun off and
later became TMC. As of the end of June, cumulative production in
Japan (2) totaled 145.21 million vehicles and overseas production
totaled 55.12 million vehicles.

Marking the achievement, TMC President Akio Toyoda said: "I wish
to express my heartfelt appreciation to our customers the world over
who made it possible for us to reach this milestone. I also have the
most profound respect and gratitude for the efforts of all persons who
were involved in developing, manufacturing, and marketing Toyota and
Lexus vehicles over the years. We are determined to make our cars even
better, to continue to give our customers the best possible product.
This is the common goal of our 300,000 Toyota staff members
worldwide."

The most-produced model among Toyota-brand vehicles is the
"Corolla", of which the 11th generation was launched in
Japan on May 11. Cumulative worldwide Corolla production totaled 39.08
million units as of the end of June.
