Toyota to Export U.S.-Built Corolla to Latin America and the
Caribbean
Company to build upon record U.S. exports in 2012

NEW YORK (Sep. 26, 2013) Toyota today announced that it will begin
exporting U.S.-built*Corolla sedans to 18 countries in Latin America
and the Caribbean in 2014. These shipments are expected to build upon
Toyota's all-time record export of more than 124,000 U.S.-assembled
vehicles to 21 global markets in 2012, an increase of 45 percent over
the prior year.

"Toyota's U.S. manufacturing operations continue to grow as a key
supplier of cars and trucks for global markets, which is only possible
thanks to the dedication and high-quality work of our team members
here," said Jim Lentz, CEO of Toyota's North America Region,
"the export of U.S.-built Corolla sedans to Latin America and the
Caribbean will help to further solidify our U.S. manufacturing
base."

Once production begins in April 2014, Toyota expects to export more
than 7,500 Corolla sedans to Latin America and the Caribbean during
the first year of sales. These vehicles will be built at the company's
Tupelo, Miss. plant, which employs about 2,000 team members and
represents an $800 million investment.
